So did you all enjoy your days over the holiday? I sure did...I was with both daughters and my grand kids, plus a friend or two~ what could be better???
Well having a birthday the day after a holiday sure helps...
My friend Sue asked if I wanted to go get a pedicure for my birthday, and it was a perfect idea. She was away over her birthday in June, so I had not decided on a gift for her yet...so we both got pretty toes...and to make it better my oldest daughter went too
I decided to get fancy : )
Then we came back to my house to make cards.Sue had taken a class using Basic Gray supplies
( one of my favs ) so she brought those up and we were going to use the left overs...
I never got that far , as she was still working on hers lol
But my grand daughter Brooke ( age 14 ) started coloring images, and she was really enjoying herself , so that made me happy
She went into my craft room and I suggested she pick out some pretty designer paper and color an image to go with it... and then go look for embellishments to add... She loves that grandma's room has so much that matches...
IMAGINE THAT ! LOL
So, here is her card...
Isn't her just full of happiness ?
She found a butterfly that had been cut on white embossed paper and decided to use chalks to change the color...then chalked the corers to add color
She added some bling , at 14 life must have bling lol
and sheer ribbon to add some texture or " fancy it up " as she said ...lol
Then I asked what she was going to put on the envelope, she was happy to find a butterfly stamp ...
Oh yes grandma has one of everything !
I am so blessed to have these grand children in my daily life
and that each of them not only love me ,
but in their own special way show me continually
Thank you GOD
then to end my day
So even tho today is dreary and full of rain...
I can look at these pictures and SMILE ~ just like the sun is shining...
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed your visit and found the iced tea I left out for you ...
Maybe next time we can sit and visit a while
Have a wonderful week, full of happiness and sun shine even if you have to make your own
Remember to see the BLESSINGS...they are there I promise you !
