Wishing You Well....FMS358






Even though dandelions are spring flowers there is something end of summer-ish to me about this card......must be because the days are end of summer-ish around here.  I took Miss Emma to the cemetery with me to remove the faded summer plants and leave fall mums on our family plot. Emma loves to work the old fashion hand pump there and ends up watering lots of flowers in the "neighborhood".  

Before we left she asked me to read her the names on the stones again......so I start ......"This is my dad who is your Great Grandpa Willy, this is my grandma who is your Great Great Grandma Kitty,  this is my aunt and uncle who are your great aunt and uncle"  and I told her something fun about all our family members.

As we headed back to the car she said "You know Amma I bet they all miss you a lot."  I never really thought about it that way before.......

What a beautiful card! I think that it's perfect for fall. Great way to use that pretty image. I'd never thought about that either...I bet that they do miss you too! :)

You've just brought on tears, Linda... you're so lucky to have stories to tell your darling girl! I also love that you are teaching her how to honor her ancestors - and to be a good neighbor!
Your card most definitely has the end-of-summer feel - wonderful!

What a wonderful story, Linda. That is a great way to tell the young ones about the ancestors. Your granddaughter is very perceptive. Give her an extra hug from me.

Out of the mouths of babes....And I love your choice of the dandelion image. It looks wonderful against the colorful circle. And how cool that the image straddles the card base and the circle!
