Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #571, where our lovely hostess, Maria, has selected the increasingly popular Slimline Card style for this week's challenge. I love slimlines, be they the full or mini size. Guess that qualifies me as being trendy *grin*
We're delighted to have Leslie Turner joining us as our guest designer this month, with a slimline card featuring my favourite hot beverage. Truly delightful! Please head over to the main blog to see the amazing inspiration from her as well as my amazing teammates. If you have time to drop by their places and leave a comment, that would be truly appreciated.
Today, I'm sharing the Valentine's Day slimline I sent to my mom. It's been a year today since we last had a 'real' visit with her (as in spending a couple of day/nights); hard to believe how things have changed. Every evening, however, I call to see how her day has been, so I figured these images would make her smile. I've also taught Lily, my sweet mini schnauzer, to be part of the conversation: when I tell her we're calling 'Bacia' (Polish for grandma), she sits beside me and 'listens' until it's her turn to say 'Night night'. I ask her to sit, look at me, wait and then, say 'night night' at which point, she taps (or more like 'smacks') her paw on the back of my iPhone. Mom can hear the 'taps' and lets Lily know how great she's doing. Of course, each 'night night' comes with a kibble as added incentive. We do that three or four times before we end the call. I know mom comes away with a smile and happy thoughts of her grand-dog *grin*
That's it from me; looking forward to seeing your slimlines in the gallery.
