Thank you to everyone who has said a prayer for us with selling this house. I am so incredibly thankful for you. The buyers signed the papers last night. As long as inspections go well we are done.
I wrote yesterday about the book by Karen Kingsbury that I just finished. The main character had a very strong relationship with her grandmother. It really got me thinking about my grandparents. I have very fond memories of my mom's parents in particular. They used to own a farm and we had free reign of the place when we were there. One of my favorite memories is spending hours with my cousins playing in the hay barn. Isn't it funny how such simple things can stick with us for so long? I also remember that my grandma ALWAYS had cookies and also would keep popsicles in the freezer in the garage. We would first check to see if there were popsicles in the freezer and then send my little sister in to ask. It didn't matter if dinner was going to be in 10 minutes my grandma would always say, "ahh yahh" in her sweet german accent. Just thinking about that makes me smile. I wish she would have lived long enough for me to get to know her better.
How about you? Do you have any special memories about your grandparents? I would love to hear them. :)
Alrighty, now for another card I created this weekend.
That cute little bird is from some SEI paper I had laying around, the Chick-a-Doo line I think. I cut off the feathers on his head and added my own with some colored wire I had. Are there any scrappers out there that remember that wire. You know, from the days of wire art on layouts. I bought a whole bunch of it and never used it. It sure makes cute head feathers though. :)
Have a very happy Tuesday and thank you for stopping by!
