More Sweet Memories

Hello; Hope you are having a wonderful week.  It's gotten a bit to warm for my liking but I'm not ready for summer to end so I wont complain to loudly.
As I said yesterday my Uncle passed away last week.  This post may make more sense if you read my previous post.
My card today is for my cousin Cindy. My Aunty and Uncle were thrilled beyond words when she was born but I remember I was not the least bit happy about her arrival. She’d stolen my limelight. A week or so later Uncle went back on the evening shift I was asked to keep my aunt company again. I did not want to go but Mom insisted. I must have been a sad sight dragging my feet over there and like Mom was so found of saying ‘dragging my lower lip‘. I really didn’t want to have anything to do with that baby and I can remember sitting on the sofa pouting. I’m not sure how she did it but my aunt soon had me madly in love with the little thing. When Uncle kissed my forehead and said ‘Bless You’ that night all was right in my world again and I've been very fond of my cousin Cindy ever since.

For my card I embossed a scrap of white card.  I've added a doily and ribbon then I added my water colored image which was cut and embossed with Standard Circles Lg and layered on Petite Scalloped Circles Lg. The sentiment is computer generated and the heart charm is from my stash.

Have an Amazing Day!
Blessings Bernie
