Well didn't get much of anything done last night. We found out just before lunch that MrP's Grandma had passed away during the night, so his father was coming up to make arrangements. The last visit we had with her, she was in quite a rough state, but I recall the first time I met her, the life in her when I got her talking about her years spent as a teacher, before meeting the love of her life & their courtship. She could, at well over 80, recite Shakespeare better than most teachers still in the business. She knew acts and was amazing.

The card I've got to show is based on Jen's Sketch for You to Try from August 22. I'm so glad I was able to play along on the weekend and use it in my card set, featuring this wonderful sentiment from Verve's Beautiful You.

Today, I dedicate my card to Grandma P...
