One More for VSN

Here's another card I made for VSN. This is for the Orchid Soup challenge to make a card with a flower and a circle. I CASEd Jeanne Streiff's idea of making the Unity clouds into a flower. This card uses the Unity July 09 KOTM. I actually crumpled the background paper for more texture, it's Colorbok.

Today, we are off to my grandpa's funeral. Dustin was able to take a day off for bereavement so he'll be accompanying me and both kids (per request of my parents) to the service. This will be the first time that we will attend an event like this together and obviously, the first time for the kids. Wish us luck!

Here's a picture of the last time we got to see Grandpa Sid. He was in the hospital. Still sweet. Still funny. Still a joy to be around. I'm thankful for these pictures.

Have a good Wednesday my sweet friends.
