I was in the car a lot longer that I had hoped to be yesterday thanks to the George Washington Bridge and the Throgs Neck Bridge! Doesn’t everyone realize that If they just merged they would all get through?! Having the top down in the car did make it more bearable, it was a beautiful day yesterday. The service for my Grandmother was lovely. The Priest that delivered it has lived next door to my Grandmother for 30 years and remembers me as a little one as he said. He spoke of her laugh that was infectious and her stubbornness and that made us laugh. I got to see people that I haven’t seen in a very long time including my Dad’s cousin Lisa. I always liked Lisa and remembered her from a few family functions from years ago. It was great to get to catch up with her and I now have her email and mobile so I can keep in touch. When we went back to the house I took a few things that reminded me of my Grandmother. When I was little I used to sit and stare at the nicknacks that she had. There were a few that fascinated me for some reason. There is a picture of a some of them below. I used to play with this set in particular. I was allowed to as long as it was only on the table and I was careful as I always was. Now every time I look at them I will be reminded of my wonderful Grandmother and smile.
Today I have a just because card that I made a little while ago just for fun! I’m sure that I will find someone to give it to in the future. The card begins with a base of Crumb Cake Card Stock. I took a piece of Whisper White and used the Draw the Line Photopolymer Stamp Set with Pool Party and Real Red ink to crete a piece of notebook paper. The Spiral Border Punch down the left side enhances it’s authenticity! LOL! I used one the stars form the Basic Hodgepodge Clips to attach a piece of Tangelo Twist behind it and “casually” adhered it to the base. Some Gold Foil Sheet is cut out with the Stars Framelits and punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. I adhered the large star to the notebook paper with Multi-Purpose Glue. My greeting is from the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set and is stamped in Tangelo Twist. I heat embossed the small stars form the Be the Star Stamp Set in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut it out with the Ovals Collection Framelits. The Tangelo Twist Stampin’ Write Marker is used to edge the oval and Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it and the punched star to the card. I had a few small gold star sequins so I added them to complete the card. A fun card that would work for a number of occasions! I hope that you like the card for today and thank you once again for all of you lovely comments yesterday. They made me smile even more knowing I was in your thoughts. Have a lovely Sunday! 🙂
