Laura...It's Your Turn

I decided to use Aunt Flo and send this card to my wonderful sister to let her know that "Mom" is coming to live with her.  After all she's lived downstairs from me for about 11 years, and even though there are 9 floors between us she can drive you CRAZY!!!! so  I think it's her turn,  My sister is clueless...Love you Laura, but you have no idea.   So I am packing up Mom's bags and shipping her up you dear sweet sister of mine...Especially since you two get along so well....Oh and by the way,  it's a one way fare so you can't send her back...

Anyway, the real reason for this card is because my nephews wife my niece (Love you Jenn)  is going to do the Avon Breast Cancer Walk in September in honor of my sister who is a  breast cancer survivor.. It is a 2 day walk throughout the city and you sleep in tents.  When you sign on to do this walk, you must commit to something like $1,800.00 which is a large sum of money.  If you don't raise the specified amount it comes out of your pocket. She needed $100 more, so I asked my sister to pledge it for me and am sending her the check in this card.

So after all that is said and done.. Here is my card.  Sorry it is a little dark, but it has been dark and gloomy in New York and it  was late and had to get it mailed to her the next day along with a baby blanket which I will show pictures on a  later date.

 As always, my Angle shot:
