Yep, sounds funny eh? Maybe not so funny if you were a nurse and a 90 year old woman was saying it. But then if that 90 year old woman was my Granny, I am sure they got a chuckle out of it.
My Granny, who is 90, here is a picture my sister Jacqui took of her in April at a picnic. Isn't she beautiful? They even put some make-up on her.
We almost lost her a few years back, some doc who should lose his licence messed her up pretty bad, in fact someone is suing him right now for some of other shoddy doctoring he did.
But she is much better now and she lives in a nursing home. She has a blanket with a cardinal on it, and she likes it folded so she can see "her bird", and if she can't she says. "I can't see my bird" "Where's my bird" ..you get the picture. I think it is hilarious, one of the nurses explained to Granny what she saying and what people might think she means by "my bird" and she got a chuckle out of it. See everyone, I come by my wackiness honestly, and I will wear it proudly.
So in honor of my Granny's bird blanket with the cardinal on it, here is a fun card using the new wood sheets.
Stamp Set: A Cardinal Christmas
Ink: Basic Black, Creamy Caramel
Paper: Real Red, Wood Sheets, Whisper White
Misc: Top Note Die, Finial press embossing folder, 3/4" polka-dot grosgrain ribbon (turned around to the plain side), ovals die, watercolor pencils, stumps and sansodor.
Some one asked about if the sansodor dried out on the sponge since it was not covered up, and I am thinking maybe it was a bit. So again I have moved my oil...it is like never ending...ha! Anyway, I had these squatty little sealer jars, and I put a sponge in there (I used a new one, didnt need to trim it, and poured the oil in, this has a lid, and I think it will be better, I just need to decorate the lid a little...ha!
Well I have a workshop with my Trilogy gals in the morning, in fact this here card I will be demoing for them, I'll show you the other one tomorrow.
I hope you have a great Wednesday, I can not tell you how much is on my to-do list from now till Convention, and I leave in one week!!! Yowza!!!
