Sweet Sketch Wednesday 121 and Meljens Designs

Wow, I just got back home from a wonderful trip to New York to visit my Daughter and her family. It was so fun to get reaquinted with my grand-daughter and little grandson. They are so cute.  I haven't seen the baby since he was a month old.  He will be one in October.  I think he decided that his grandma was ok before I left to go home.  He love his mom but, before I left, he would lay his head on my shoulder and then on his moms.  He would go back and forth to both of us.  It was really hard to leave them. They have both grown up so much. 
The saturday before I left to come back home my daughter and one of her friends and I walked in a 5K.  I know, I said "walk". that is doing really well for me. I do wish I could "run" like I use too.  But, I am doing really, really well walking since I broke my femur and hip a few years back.  It was such a beautiful park and the day was gorgeous.  What more can you ask for.

"Beach Kitten"
Here it is, the tail end of the summer and I couldn't resist this adorable image.  I didn't get to the beach this summer but, if I had, I would have liked to be as relaxed as this "Beach Kitten" is.  She really brings a smile to my face.

  1. Saw your card at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Love it!!!! Colors are wonderful. New follower ;)

    Be Blessed, Beckie
    Stop in and see me sometime...

  2. Oh Nancy your card is so sweet very girlie. I just love the look on the cats face and that Bikini Bra it's priceless. When we came to choose our images I didn't look at that image as well as I should have I really love it now it's coloured up. Great colours and love your shell embellishment.
    It sounds like you had a wonderful time in New York with your family and grand children. You'll have to do it every 6 months as your grandchildren will be growen up before you know it and you'll miss the best years. I know easier said than done and it's finding the time, leave from work and cost. Take care and have a wonderful week.

  3. This is such a fun image and I just love all f the fun pink papers you used! The rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch too!

    I'm now working 2 part time jobs. Not sure what else to do right now. I leave the house at 7am and I don't get home until 7pm. Makes for a very long and tiring day. What's happening on the job front with you?

    Have a great week!

    Peace & Luv,

  4. Hi Nancy - my partner saw your card and absolutely loved it as do I. The image is beautifully coloured in and the papers that you have chosen go with it so well. I love the seashell embellishment :0) Very cool card!! Michelle x

  5. Hey Nancy, looks like you are doing better at getting around after your trip than I am...sorry to be late. Love your card, your coloring is gorgeous. Love the pretty pinks. We are getting a little color in our leaves,especially the maples. Leaf blowing time before long. Thanks for the sweet comments on my room, maybe some of the other gals will show theirs. Take care and have a great week.
