Our Thoughts Are With You

Unfortunately I need a sympathy card to send to my Grandma. Her very best friend passed away rather suddenly yesterday and she is so very sad. This is the card I made her and I hope it brightens her day a wee bit, at the very least to let her know that we are indeed thinking of her.

I used an older Tilda, but she is so sweet. I also used some Porcelain Basic Grey paper and chocolate satin SU ribbon. The sentiment is from Little Paper Shop. It started out with Amy's sketch, but I had to put my sentiment somewhere else, so it's not exact.

My gosh time flies. Kirsten only went to school Monday this week, so we have been busy just hanging out together. Crafting and blogging take a back seat when she is off school, so I am definitely behind! We had to go and pick up the Durango yesterday, it needed new brakes and an oil change and such and Lance had to go to Medicine Hat for work, so my FIL came with us and then drove our truck home. We went for ice cream at Dairy Queen and had a great afternoon.

We also have a wee baby calf that we are pail feeding...the kids named him Lostie and Kirsten thinks that if he finds a mama then she will call him Lost & Found!! Too cute!! We don't really know what the deal is with him, either he is a twin and his mama only accepted one of them or else his mama has no clue and didn't accept him at all. We tried pairing him up with who we thought was his mama, but that didn't work, so back int he barn he goes and we feed him!

Off I scoot, we are off to the city to visit Lance's Grandma and then to Okotoks to stay at my parents for 2 nights, so I won't be back until later Friday. I know we are out an about Saturday too, so hopefully I'll be back on Sunday!

Have a great week and thank you for stopping by!
