Happiness Always

I love love love this card it is from Fred She Says.  It comes in a full page and you cut it out and put it all together.  It is so beautiful I wish you could see the layers of it. 
Both cards were made off one sheet that I downloaded and I used Crystal Effects for the center of the flower.  I bought several colors and one night I sat down and cut them out while watching Big Brother on TV.  I have them in baggies to sort the colors but I think these are beautiful and can be used for absolutely any card.

Journal Time: All is going well, its been so beautiful in the mornings.  This morning it was 68 outside and I took a cup of coffee outdoor and read.  I love the mornings when its so quiet the birds are singing, its so calm.   I went to visit Mom today and she is doing fine she really adores Agnes the nurse & owner of Abby's Place.  I also think the world of Agnes & David, they are so kind to Mom and help her with everything.  The other day Agnes gave me a Mango to take home, it was the sweetest ever and I told them how I so appreciate them.  Today they insisted we go to the Asian Market where they buy them fresh each Tuesday.  Then they bought a case and refused to accept any money from me for the four mango's.  These people are so precious to me each visit I learn more and more about them.  They are from Africa and have been here 20 years, they have 4 children.  One is a lawyer in Geneva, Switzerland he's 27, their only daughter is 25 and a DRN or something like that, their second son 22 is studying to be a financial adviser and their youngest son is in med school.  Wow, to have 4 children who are so successful. They have raised some wonderful kids and are so grateful to God for their many blessings.  I'm so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life also.  God Bless,

Granny, please forgive me for being so long between visits. Your flower card is just gorgeous -- what a wonderful set, and you worked it up so fabulously! I am so very thankful to read of how your mom is settling in. What a blessing Abby and Dave have turned out to be, in so many ways. You need that kind of love and support, honey, and I'm so glad you're getting it! Much love, Deedee
