My husband is sad, but at the same time in peace knowing his dad doesn't have more pain and he is in Heaven, rejoicing with the Lord.
I don't know if I will be able to make a post in a while, I have some projects to do, but I don't know if I will have time to make them. We live more than 3 hours away from them, so this is going to be a different week for us.
Your prayers are appreciate it.

For the inside I used a new set from smARTworks Pupose Small. I stamped the sentiment in Stazon Black and the flowers on Pistachio Pigment Ink. I also sponged the borders.

Rebecca sang a couple of songs and he looked content. It was a really hard moment for my husband. we live in the other side of the Mountains, so it is very hard to make trips very often.
On Saturday I did a lot of laundry, I was exhausted and then my husband told me he wasn't feeling very good. Saturday night my poor husband couldn't breath and started coughing. Sunday, he spent most of his day sleeping, I think he got a cold (a really bad one). He called this morning to the Medical Center and our primary doctor is not there today and also the receptionist told him he is not on the system, WHAT!!??!! He has been there before, so he has to wait until tomorrow.
Anyway, I hope I can find some time to stamp today. Don't forget about the Paper Craft Magazine Give Away, just check my Wednesday and Thursday posts for details.
Have a great day
God bless you

After that I cut out the image using my Coluzzle, I sponged the border. The back CS is Cream Textured Bazzill, it was cut out also with Coluzzle and sponged with Cranberry Crisp Ink. After that I pierced that CS. ( I used a circular Plastic Canvas)
The base CS is Cranberry Crisp. The Second layer is River Rock and the DP is SEI Alpine Frost Collection. I zig zag stitched second layer and DP. I used white thread for this. I stamped the sentiment in Cranberry Crisp Ink. I added 2 Red Dew Drops on the upper right and bottom left corner. I used Mini Glue dots for this. For the bow I used Red Organdy Ribbon.
Circular Chickadee: This card is really easy to make. I cut out the Cream Textured Bazzill CS using the Coluzzle (bigger circle) The DP is from SEI Alpine Frost Collection. I used both sides of the paper. I stamped the bird from Chickadee Wishes Set in Cranberry Crisp Ink. I added some Diamond Glaze for the shiny look.
