This "Mater's" For You... and You... and You!

My Grandpa wore red suspenders and drove a beat up old white station wagon. He loved to work in the garden and in his green house. During that time of the year when his tomato plants were bursting at the seams with ripe and juicy tomatoes, he carried a bag full with him nearly every where he went! When he passed away earlier this year, my Grandma let me keep one of the Hydrangea's that was sent for the service. This one seemed extra special to me because the pot that the flower was in was filled with garden vegetables and was sent by my Grandpa's Chiropractor! I sent a thank-you card to the chiropractor and he sent me the kindest note back.  He told me how wonderful my grandfather was and told me that grandpa would take him a bag of veggies from his garden even when he didn't have an appointment! :)

I colored "Farmer Sally," from Sassy Cheryl's collection with my Copic markers. I used a few embellishments that I have had laying around in a jar for a while now and embossed the wonderful Paper Trey Ink paper. I used my handy dandy Xyron Machine to make sure everything stayed exactly where I wanted it! 

I will be entering Farmer Sally into the following challenges:
