Another post for the day!
Well... I wanted to leave a card at the top of my blog for tomorrow (I don't think I will be blogging tomorrow) because I didn't want it to be a downer when you came to visit me! :)
Thank you all for your prayers and sweet comments about the passing of my grandfather! It is bitter sweet! You never want someone you love to pass away but.... when you know where they are going and that they are in pain and ready to go... it is hard to be too sad about it! I worry about my grandmother but she is strong so she will be okay. I worry about my dad and my aunts and uncles because they just lost their father... I hope it is years and years before I have to know what that feels like! Anyway... all that to say that I am really okay! I know my Pa is in heaven and he is happy! So... that makes me happy! We will see how the next two days go. I am sure they will be emotional and hard but unfortunately this is all part of life. Nothing you can do about it but grieve, pray and move on! It helps when you know the ones you love are with Jesus!
So... on to the card! I made this the other night while playing with my new PTI alphabet set. I got this set really for scrapbooking but since I haven't actually started that yet... thought I would try it out on a card.
On a scrapbooking note... I did see a layout challenge that I am interested in playing with. I think finding some layout challenges will motivate me to get started. I need to get some pics printed so I can! That is my main excuse for not starting yet! :) I can probably come up with more if anyone is interested! :)
Here is a close up of the card. I colored and cut out every other letter and popped them up with dimensionals.
This twine that I used is awesome.... If I weren't so lazy... I would leave a link but since I am tonight... I will just tell you about it. I saw it a while back on Elise Blaha's blog. It is called Divine Twine from Whisker Graphics. Whitney is the shop owner and you can find her on Etsy. I got the orange and I LOVE IT! It is a ton of twine for the money! Seriously... a ton! I just ordered a couple of more colors because I thought why not... money grows on trees, right? :) I have wanted more since I got the orange months ago. I have used it a lot lately so it really made me want to get some more. Found out that she has new colors coming soon... can't wait to see what they will be! Anyway... you should go to etsy.com and search for Whisker Graphics.... great stuff!
Thanks again for all the prayers! They are much appreciated and needed! The visitation is tomorrow from 2-9pm and the funeral is Thursday at 10am. So... if you happen to think about us during that time... please offer up a prayer for comfort that comes only from God! Thanks!
Peace and Love!
