Get Well Pirate Card

My grandmother had cataracts removed this week.  Her and I are very close, but not near as close as her and my son.  I love that she is well enough to establish such a wonderful relationship with him!

I came home and told him that "Double G" (he calls her that for Great-Grandma) had to wear a patch over her eye for a couple of days.  He's loving pirates right now, so he thought this was really cool!  I thought I would make her a pirate card and have him give it to her.

I used 3 Birds on Parade cartridge, and cut the pirate bird at 4 1/4".  I then added stickles to his little bit of hair.  She LOVED it and my son thought it was awesome!  It brought a smile on her face, so mission accomplished!


Deepest Sympathy Card

A co-worker of my husband lost her mother this week.  He asked me to make her a sympathy card, so of course I did.

I used one of my favorite cartridges, Cindy Loo, and cut the bird at 3 1/4".  I thought it turned out super cute!  I hope it brought her a little piece of comfort to know our family is keeping her and her family in our thoughts and prayers.
