Made for the HYCCT Honor Your Elders challenge. I made this in memory of my grandfather who passed away from esophageal cancer several years ago and used one of his pocket watches I still have as inspiration. My grandpa was my best friend, next to my mom who also passed away but from breast cancer, and whenever I see a pocket watch stamp/image I think of grandpa and smile. He was always there when I needed him after mom died and I miss him terribly - so grandpa - this card is for you!! I hope whomever receives it also gets a smile from it as well. Thanks for the memories.

Bonnie, I LOVE your beautiful card!!! Your pocket watches became even more special because of your wonderful grandfather! I am so glad he was there for you, especially when you needed him most! I am sorry your family has been hurt so terribly by cancer. For you to share your love for others (going thru something similar) means so much!!! Thank you for sharing your family with us and for making this elegant and gorgeous card!!!!
