My Grandad has been forefront to my mind this week, he was born on the 10th March 1909 and died on the 11th March 1989. Although I think of him all the time, this week is special and when I sat down to make a card tonight he was there in my head. So I did something I rarely do and made a card just for me.
The book page is from a story called "The Girl Who Loved Graveyards" - and I guess I do. I often visit my friend Sean and I laid my wedding bouquet on my Grandads grave when I married in 2008. Of course graveyards can be sad places, but for me it is somewhere to feel closer to those that I loved that are no longer with me.
The rusted heart felt right, even though its been 21 years, he's still very much in my heart, and I used my initial to signify this is my heart. The black ribbon signifies grandad and is attached with a brad bearing the letter "G".
Happy Birthday Grandad, I love you always.
