FM 88

I told you yesterday was going to be special.  And it was.  First came the cuddling of my almost 2 month old great grandson.  Yes, I said great.  I didn't get a picture of the two of us but here's one of him.

My granddaughter was trying to make him smile but this was as good as it got.  He's such a snuggle bunny and I can't wait until I see him again.

Then there was the 8th grade performance of Fame Jr.  I was completely blown away.  The entire cast was tremendous but my granddaughter's performance made me cry..  I knew she could dance - she's been taking  ballet since she was 4.  The singing and acting were not a complete surprise since she's been putting on plays with her sister and cousins for a long time. But to see her on stage playing a character and singing her heart out just got to me. I'd better stop or I'm going to cry again.

Now for what you came here for - my card for Freshly Made.

I flipped the sketch and made a little clipboard from Fantastic Finds.  I embossed the "clip" with silver, inked the edges with walnut Disrtess Ink, stamped the sentiment in HA pale tomato, added a strip of paper from WeRMemorykeepers, and it's done.

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the world.  I hope you have a wonderfully creative day.

I agree--your grandson is the cutest thing on your post--but your card is a very close second.

THIS is what I was looking for! I did know about your great-grandson (although I just remembered the grandson part) but I thought there was another on the way too... Perhaps my mind is creating relatives for you!! Anyway, I'm delighted that you were finally able to meet him. He is PRECIOUS!!! I love all the hair!

How wonderful that you were able to see your granddaughter's performance too!
