Beary Beautiful


***UPDATE***
Surgery is over and Grandma Dottie is resting.  We won't know anymore until the oncologist has a chance to look over everything.  Thank you so much for your prayers for my family.  It means the world to me that people I've never met would take time to think of us.  God Bless you all!

Good Morning and a happy Friday!  Any exciting plans for the weekend? It's supposed to get down to 29 tonight.  Coldest night yet.  I need to dig up my banana trees and bring in my aloe vera.  I have two knockout roses that aren't in the ground yet.  Anybody know what I should do with those?  My son got them for me and I just haven't decided where to plant them yet.

Today is the day of my grandmothers surgery.  Our prayers are with you Grandma Dottie and mom you too.  I know this has been hard on you as well.  Thank goodness grandma has you.  And you're training me in the process! LOL  I love you both.

Okay, on to the reason you're here.....my card!  This is a sweet image from Phindy's Place called "Beary Beautiful".  I followed the Get Sketchy sketch, but once again I'm not sure if I'll get it posted in time.  I think that's 3 weeks in a row now.  Better get on it better!  It doesn't show up great in the picture but I cut two triangles and then punched the edges with my stamp (not sure what it's called...sorry), then I ran this pretty fiber that matched the colors through it like a lace.  I added a bow at each end to finish it off.  I looked really pretty until I realized I was covering most of it up with my image.  Oh well.  Thanks for stopping.  Tomorrow I have a Michelle Perkett image I used and it turned out beautiful.  Hope you stop back by.
