Sorry I have been MIA lately, but I have been going through some family stuff. My grandpa passed away last weekend (sort of unexpectedly), so needless to say, I have been preoccupied. Although he was a "grumpy old guy", I loved him dearly and am heartbroken that he is gone.
I am blessed to have the recent memories and a few old ones that I have. He went in peace and that is comforting to know. Boy, will I miss him though. I know I will have the opportunity to see him again in Heaven someday, and time heals all wounds, but right now it is pretty tough.
The services are Thursday and Friday this week, so please pray for me and my family as we get through these difficult days ahead.
I LOVE YOU GRANDPA!!

Okay, so my love affair is with Rich Razzleberry paper from SU. Ooohhh, how I love that color! Maybe because it is new, or maybe because it is so vibrant, I am not sure but I do know I am in love...
Here are just a couple of cards I made today which are totally similar. I first did the layout on the bottom card, but wasn't completely sold, so then I changed it up a little and got the top card, I like that one a lot more, what is your favorite?
Chat with you soon!

Just thought I would post this card I made earlier today. Our friend Bella, who is six years old, (who I have posted pictures on my blog a few times now) was attacked by a dog this past weekend and is currently at The Children's Hospital. She has been there for a couple of days now as her injury has gotten infected. The poor little gal has got some nasty dog bites on her face near her eye. They had to remove a few of the sutures she got over the weekend because of the infection. She is pretty lucky though because the bites were only about a 1/2 inch from her eye.
She is in high spirits and was excited that we came for a visit and of course brought her some goodies! We hope she recovers fast...We love ya Bella.
Anyway, as you can tell everything is pretty much SU, with a few exceptions of some nesties, stickles, and embellies. Any questions, just ask!
Have a great night, I need to go to bed as it is past my bedtime, LOl!

I hope everyone has enjoyed their holiday weekend (US)! Mine was nice and relaxing for the most part. My DH and I did go ATVing yesterday and got rained on...okay more appropriately, we got drenched! I saw some really pretty wild flowers and I went to take some pictures to possibly use on a card, but the batteries were dead...bummer! We have had a crazy amount of rain for the past 45 days or so, that eveything was green and lush.
Anyway, the above card I whipped out today. I am pretty happy on how it turned out. I even used a stamp set I have not used yet, so that made it more rewarding (you all know what I am talking about, don't ya, LOL). Everything is SU, so if you have questions just ask.
Have a great night and a wonderful week!

Although, we do have to be home before all the fireworks and festivities start because my two dogs go absolutely nuts with the loud noises. My DH and I are always home on the 4th evening beccause of this. That's okay though, we do not mind, maybe we will make it a movie night anyway :)
I hope everyone has a great holiday!
PS I hope to get in my stamp room tomorrow...wish me luck! Maybe I will ahve something fun to post too :)
