Ahhh feels like Monday!

Oh my blogging friends I hope this post finds you well...I can't believe it's Tuesday...where the heck did the weekend go.  Mine was great--spent some time with my family and we had a great time.  I decided that it was time to get back to my Cricut--the poor thing has been terribly abandon and I had to make at least one card with her tonight and decided to share it with all of you!  I came across some challenges I decided to enter and many of them focused on Grandparents Day--sadly all of my grandparents have passed away and I miss one of my Grandmas a lot-- this card is in her honor!
I remember my Grandma sitting at the kitchen table and she always had a deck of cards in her and...she was a world class Solitaire player and she'd whip any of her children in a few hands of Pinochle :)  And we grew up playing Tripoley for pennies for years and years--and you knew best not to ever cheat if you were playing with G-Ma...if you cheated you were done playing with her!  Ahhh my family now always enjoys playing cards--this weekend we played a lot of "Golf" and we are known to pull out the Tripoley board now and again!  Miss you Grandma!

Details:
Cricut: Father's Day cartridge
Paper: SU! solids, Unkown DSP
Twine: The Twinery


Challenges Entered!

Such a beautiful card Sarah! I'm glad that you still share such beautiful memories with your grandma - if she were still here she'd LOVE what you created her.

Glad you were able to get back to the Cricut again!! Don't neglect her too long! ;)
