In my mind and in my car


Here is this week's sketch from Card Patterns ...

No one is as surprised as I am how this card turned out ...

 Not quite my usual style !!

I am also submitting this to:
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge - Spring with pastel colors

All the grandmas have cute names - but not me.  I live with the dullest grandma name - "grandma"  *sigh*

I have vainly attempted to interest Spencer in other names, but he is certain that somehow God gave me this name, and I am stuck with it.  I have been pushing for some sort of adjective to go along with it, like "Queen" grandma, but he told me I needed a crown for that.  

Well, this week I greeted him with a crown, which he said "frustrated" him, but he did not ask me to remove it.  When I took it off sometime later, he asked me where it was.  I told him the magical fairies took it for a while, but he said

"Grandma, (with the same expression as one might say, You Dunce) magical fairies are only legends and tales...  "

as I fear any other name is ...

Cardstock - Bazzill
