Saturday, April 9, 2011

Hello everyone. This business of, me being missing, is really getting old. I've been around, just not doing many cards or crafting. After my child watching stint, (can't really call it babysitting as the boys are now 6 & 10) my sister Michelle was here for a week and then I rested for a few days and tried to wrap my mind around the fact that my young neighbor and dear little friend Tony had passed away.
It was such a tragedy. Only 45 years old and he was already called home to be with Jesus. The autopsy could take up to six months for results, and I for one will be heart-broken if they don't find a cause. I know now why the word "closure" is used so often in an untimely death. The service was yesterday the 8th. The girls did right by their brother. It was a lovely service and so, so many friends, co-workers, and relatives where there to send him on  his way. The priest had a wonderful message for all of us about Tony's ability to always give to his friends and community, his very sweet and loving heart and his assured place in the kingdom of God. I was very moved by it. I said goodbye to my friend and will always think of and remember him often.

I do have a card to share with you today. I've had it done for a couple of weeks, but have just had the time to post it. It's another version of one of my "girls" as I like to call them. This is a version of a stamp I already posted, but different colors. Sugar Nellie has a couple new digi stamps that I purchased, yes I said purchased, what ever happened to my resolution to cut back my spending??? Oh right, back on topic, they are two new girls and boy.  I got the little boy and one of the girls. The other girl is a head image only and I so prefer the full body image. I am in the process of coloring them now and I will have a card or two for you in the next week or so. Here's my post for today.
I thought this was appropriate for today as we DO need to cherish every moment.
My recipe for this card is as follows:
