About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

With Sympathy


I can't believe how fast this week just FLEW by.  Last Friday I was informed that one of my 12-year-old's friends' mother was killed in a motorcycle accident a few days prior.  So I had to get on the ball and make a card.  The funeral was Monday.  It was a beautiful service...but very long.  I'd never been to a Catholic service before, so it was quite interesting.  I talked to him and told him if he ever needed anyone to talk to...he could give me a call.  I knew EXACTLY what he was going through.  I lost my mom when I was 14...5 days before I turned 15.  But he is doing well now and finding peace in his life.  But my heart still aches for him.

So here is my card:

The stamps used are from the February 2013 KOM.  Inside the card I used the "May the Memory of Your Mother" and then below that used "Surround Your Heart With Love and Bring You Strength"

Dies used are the Poppystamps Madison Park Bench, Memory Box Lavish Branch, Memory Box Fabulous Phlox, Poppystamps Nestled Bird, Impression Obsession Leafy Branch, Sizzix Branch, Flower Punches
