Ok so its early Sunday morning...lol. But you know as I have not been to bed yet I would say this counts as a post per day for my mission...lol.
Today was a long day for all of us. We had to deal with some family issues and then had a BIG BBQ for two of Nick's aunts and their families. The BBQ was a blast I must say and a nice ending to a long day.
Today I am showing you two cards that I worked on. The first is using my new copics and please bare with me as I am still trying to master how to use them....lol. I love the cuppacakeabella. She would be one that I can use over and over and over and always find something new to do with her.
The second card I made was using the grillafella. This was a very difficult card for me to make let alone write about. It being Fathers Day today is a very bitter sweet day for me. Dad passed away on November 9, 2007. A very short seven and a half weeks after we moved back to Ontario. I was looking so forward to this being the first Fathers Day we have shared together in 13 years. He was my rock. He was my best friend. He was my everything. Having no warning that we were going to loose him has been hard. Finding him is even harder for me to deal with. Telling mom was the killer. I look up and see him. I talk to him all the time. I wish he was here. I miss him dearly. There was so much I would have wanted to say to him had we known he would be taken from us so fast. I chose to make the grillafella card for him because BBQ`ing was his favourite thing to do on Sundays. Come rain, shine, or snow he could always be seen standing with tongs. He would sit and make his famous souvlaki and sneak a few pieces when mom was not looking....lol. She always wondered why he seamed full when we sat down to eat....lol. Later today Nick and I are going to take the girls to the cemetery and leave dad some flowers. I will also leave him the card and hope that he can see it. :) Dad was a very plain man so I saw it fot to make him a nice simple card.
Ok now I will say thank you all for coming and viewing my cards but enough yapping I have tears that need to be cleaned off my face. Hope you all have a great Sunday and a very Happy Father`s Day to your other halves. :)
