A card and a good-bye

I'm sure you were all waiting with bated breath to see this card that I told you I had made a few weeks ago for a very special someone. So here it is ..... don't everyone bombard me with your gratitude all at once :)

I had found this stamp at Michael's just after Thanksgiving & even though I'm supposed to be selling all my stuff - not buying - I knew I had to have it even if I only made this one card with it. 

As you can see my "photographing red" skills have not improved in the least.

I colored the image with pencils & used lots of that furry glitter stuff & the snow stuff - lots of texture on this baby!

I wanted to keep the rest of the card simple & focus more on the way-too-cute image. 

I found the sentiment that I used inside the card in an old winter SU set - something with snowmen. LOL can you tell I'm too lazy tonight to actually go all the way downstairs & look up the proper names of everything? Anyway, this sentiment was 200% perfect for the card's recipient. 

I made this card for my grandma, along with some Christmas cookies, a couple of weeks before Christmas. I'm so glad I did ~ she was so thrilled & was showing everyone my card & insisting they have a cookie. My grandma, who has been there for me my whole life, who taught me so much (including how to bake cookies) & was truly my best friend, passed away Monday morning after being diagnosed with lung cancer just before Thanksgiving. She was 94 (and a half, she would proudly say) years old. My kids & I are completely devastated & are deep in mourning. The anniversary of my dad's death is in just a few days, so that makes this even harder. In her honor, please call someone dear to you & tell them how much they mean to you. Make someone a card, just because. Hug your kids a little tighter tonight. 

~ rest in peace, Grandma ~ I will always love you ~

Aw Michelle hugs to you! I lost my sweet grandma last year, not easy, but I'm so thankful I was close to mine and have lots of wonderful memories of her and sounds like you do too. An adorable card you made for her. (hugs)
