The picnic yesterday was fun. It was great to see Granny again and she looked just beautiful. The girls put a little bit of make up on her and I think she looked just fantastic. We are still very blessed to have her with us. She is 90. We have that blessing reinforced each time we go to the nursing home to visit and we see the other residents who do not recognize their family and are not aware of their surroundings. It is very sad. So, we are very thankful that Granny is still Granny and that all her little quirks are there just like they have been for as long as I remember. Here is a picture of Granny with her make up on! Isn't she pretty!
Here is a picture of Granny and Joel. I love this one. I don't have very many pictures of them together, and I certainly don't have many with Granny smiling - she has started smiling a little bit more for pictures, but they are few and far between. You have to get her when she does not know you are taking her picture.
One of my challenges this week was to make an "anything goes" card. This was good for me, cause I had an idea for a couple of cards that were not Stampin' Up! only, so I made one for this challenge. I really like the Changito monkey's and this is one of the little fellas I grabbed up from Sheila's store when I was there when my sister was home.
The image was stamped and coloured with the Copics. The flower was cut out from the designer paper and layered to make petals. A large brad from Stampin' Up! was used for the centre of the flower. A little bit of bling was added to the bottom near the sentiment.
Hopefully my challenge partner likes it.
Chow for now
