I sat down today with the intention to start a card, any card, any kind, didn't matter, then I remembered I NEEDED a card for a very special lady.
Upon moving to this small town in Manitoba Canada, we were immediately befriended by our lovely neighbors 'cross the street'. huh-um....(clears throat)...those people would be The Prairie Fairy & her parents. We are #4 Cherry Street, Prairie Fairy (Roberta & fam) are #9 Cherry Street & Roberta's parents are #6 Cherry Street (directly 'cross the street from us).
We all became instant friends & soon we were having coffee dates, play dates, card making dates & my kids started calling Roberta's parents 'Grandma & Grandpa 'cross the street' .
Well, Grandma has been struck ill as of late & is in need of some get well cards. So I put paper to paper cutter and got busy!!
I used SU ribbon & a technique called "wrinkled ribbon" that you only need two sided tape for. This tutorial can be found at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog .
I went looking for sentiments with fairies in them on the internet & came up with this cute little sentiment you see in the picture below. I copied it to a document file & altered the font & size.
I thought it fit perfectly with this image.
We anticipate Grandma to make a full recovery!
This is a sceduled post, so as this is coming to your blogs, we will be dropping off this card & some flowers to our Grandma 'cross the street. :-)
