bee well soon - Paisley Cartridge

I made this card for my grandmother who recently fell and broke a vertebrae.  She and I, when I was younger, spent a lot of time together.  I used to love to spend the night with her.  She would, of course, spoil me rotten!!!  We would go to the store getting all my favorite foods, play cards or board games, and stay up late.  A young girl's dream come true!  I know she is in for a rough long recovery, but hopefully this card can brighten her day.

I also did a video tutorial!  I hope you like it!

  10. Grandmas are so great! Now that I am one, I love doing things with them. My 2 GDs and I "dressed up" in our finest and went to the Mall for sodas and shopping! Wore jeans, white shirt, big bead necklace with matching earrings, gaudy rings and bracelets and lets not forget the makeup! Had a blast!! The following month we did a tea party with big hats and feather boas, purses, and said "dawling". When we drank our tea, we held out our pinkies. Such fun! Got pictures and scrapped them!!

  11. Oh what a fun card, super cute and cheery, just right for a get well card.
