GrandMother's Pearls

When I was very young, the one constant and wonderful thing in my life was my Grandmother. She taught me needlecrafts like crochet, knitting, embroidery and so much more.  She was patience and love always.  I loved her dearly and still do, and keep the connection with in my crafts every day.  Earlier today I was thinking and talking about her so I made a card that represents so many things about my Grandmother.

I loved this card so much I am using it as my Easel Card in Betty's Fancy Fold Swap.
