Think warm...

I'm trying to picture a white, sandy beach and the sun hot on my face but all the snow outside my window is not helping things. :) Here's a new Rusty Pickle card using the Island Summer line. I love the bright colors and fun images on these patterned papers.

I've got a bit of a cold now but I am so happy it didn't get too bad. This week just hasn't been the best. My family received some bad news about my grandma and I've been having a really hard time dealing with it. She's very, very sick and it's so difficult to see her condition deteriorate. I love my grandma dearly and feel so blessed that I was able to grow up with her right there all the time. My grandma and grandpa have ALWAYS been there for me and my sisters. They came to all of our activities; whether it was a softball game or a Christmas concert, they were there. We probably went out to their house at least once a week when we were kids. I have so many fond memories of spending time with them. My grandma is a great cook and I learned a lot about cooking and baking from her. There are 7 girls in my family (grandma, my mom and two aunts, and me and my sisters) and we've done a lot of "girl" things together. I only get home about once a month now but I make a point to see my grandparents each time.

I better get busy today! Enjoy your weekend! :)
