What a sad day.
Good evening everyone. I just want you all to know that I will probably be MIA the rest of the week. Nick received a phone call this morning saying that his grandma had died suddenly. She did not have any huge health problems at all, her heart just stopped working properly. Anyway, we are headed home to Iowa for the funeral tomorrow and if you could just say a prayer for Nick and his family that would be great. He is taking it really hard and I know his mom is struggling with it a lot as well. His grandma was an amazing woman. She bore 17 children (only 2 of which were twins) and has been taking care of her husband who is battling Alzheimers.
Anyway, I made this card over the weekend not realizing how soon I would need it. This card will be going to Nick's mom.
As far as details on the card, I made it for this week's featured stamper on SCS. This week was Judy aka StampingQueenJar. She is fabulously talented! I choose to case this card of hers. For my version I used my "Here For You" set from There She Goes along with my BasicGrey Porcelein paper. I embossed the bird and cut him out with my nestabilities. I added some ribbon behind the main panel and popped up some pretty little flowers. The whole card was also given a distressed look with my Tim Holtz distress inks and sponge daubers. My last and final touch was to paper pierce around the corners of the card.
Well, I hope that you like this card. Again, I apologize if I am not able to post much this week. We will see how things turn out. Take care and enjoy your evening!
