Melanie Joy


My oldest grand daughter turned 12 today. Twelve years ago as she entered the world I caught her - I was helping her father deliver her - mine were the first hands to touch her. It was one of the greatest joys of my life. Melanie is a joy in many many ways! she is very smart, a very talented artist, sensitive and beautiful. She is home schooled, a Girl Scout! (yeah cookies for Grandma). She loves dance, ANY kind of junk food! and her cat, Marshmallow : ). She wants to be a missionary to Russia when she grows up so she is learning to speak Russian (along with French and Latin). What she does NOT like is pink or purple so I created this card for her using colors she loves.

Happy Birthday Mellie I love you a google times infinity!

Patti, thank you for sharing that lovely story about your first granddaughter. You are obviously blessed with a wonderful family. I love this card. You have the coolest paper and stamps! Who makes that bird stamp? It's really cute. Love the colors you used too.

PS - I'm glad my watermelon seed-spittin' bunny made you giggle. Susan gave me that image but I think I'm going to have to buy him because he's sooo cute!

Cute card Patti! I was in an image swap on SCS and I got this image in the images I received. I thought it was cute when I got it but after seeing your creation I REALLY think it is cute and can't wait to use it! Happy Birthday to your granddaughter! I hope she has a fabulous day.

Patti,
Aww that was so sweet. You must be the best Grandma ! And I think she is really going to go places with ambition like that!
The card is absolutely darling. I think the colors are perfect with the birds and the paper is so beautiful.
She will love the card and she will be happy that there is no pink or purple lol
