Tiddly Inks #54

Did anyone miss me yesterday?  ;)  Jeremy's mom had flown in from California and she took us out for a Father's Day breakfast yesterday morning.  Then we spent the afternoon at my mom's house, the kids went swimming and I just relaxed by the pool for a couple of hours, it was heavenly.  My mom has really been great the past few weeks, I must say.  It's been difficult to get through the loss of someone we didn't expect to lose for many more years... this is a picture of me and my nana from a couple of years ago (nana was my mom's mom):

She was a hot shit who always spoke her mind, but made sure you knew she loved you no matter what.  Rest in peace, nana, you will be missed but never forgotten.

So anyway - spent most of the weekend attending services for my nana, so I didn't get much crafting done.  I did, however, manage to squeak out a card for the:

Holy crap, this was hard.  LOL  I used the Poppy frame and the Poppy girl as my images, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I used a bunch of thank-you stickers from Mrs. Grossman's and some black sticky gemstones to give it some bling, and added glitter to the main flower.  Then I just dragged the edges of my card over a red ink pad and voila - a one-layer card that actually looks half-way decent.  Whodathunkit?  hee hee
Have a good day - peace.
