Card Inspired by Childhood Special Person

Hi Everyone, Happy New Year to you all!!! It is a great start to 2012 for me!

Tonight I am taking part in the Forest Swap VSN to bring in the New Year.  Fantastic, crafting with friends from around the world. Darlene started us off at 8pm USA EST and asked us to make a card inspired by someone who gave us great memories from our childhood.

I made this card in memory of my Grandmother, she was someone who spent much special time with me, she taught me to knit and sew, gave me appreciation of the books and the garden.  I loved her dearly and miss her every day.

I made this card in cream, with an embossed background, a beautiful bow, lace flower, hatpins, pearls and a lovely silhouette image from SU.  My Grandma was elegant, always had lace and pearls, loved her garden  and always smelled of Gardenia or Rose.

Hope you have fond memories of your childhood.

Lovely card and touching tribute to your Grandmother, Lauren. She would adore this card, especially since it was made from your heart for her!
Blessings for 2012 to you and your family!
