I want to welcome you to a new friend and wonderful designer to you today with the most phenomenal project to share with you!!! This wonderful crafter's name is April Nourse from www.curlsandgrins.blogspot.com/ and please make sure you stop by and give her some bloggie love and check out her projects!!!

Attached are 2 cards I created over the weekend for my Guest Designer spot for Her Craftiness.  

When I count my blessings, my grandma always make the top of the list.  When I was born, my mother was ill and unable to care for me and my father was already gone from our lives.  My grandparents stepped in and raised me.  My grandmother was patient, love, kindness and everything good wrapped in one person.  She was always available for anyone who needed her or just needed someone to listen.  She is who I want to be.  In 2009, she was diagnosed with cancer and succombed very quickly despite her excellent health.  Today is our second year to celebrate her birthday and the blessing that she was to us without being able to hug her.  We miss her so much but keep her alive in our hearts and the way I raise my children.

These cards are inspired by my grandma's 18th birthday picture.  

I used the Sonoma papers and Sweet Moments stamp set from Close to my Heart - www.ctmh.com/aprilnourse.  I also used the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge from Close to my Heart to cut the shapes before stamping.

Thank you for allowing me to share!

God Bless
Hugs and Love,
