With Sympathy

This has been a very long month for our family. Between me being sick and some other health issues. The girls are now getting sick one at a time :( . The hardest part of this month (so far) is the sad news that this past Saturday we lost Nick's uncle to cancer. I am glad he is not in pain anymore but it is still hard. I find his death personally hard because he was close to my dad. The only comfort is that now dad will have his backgammon partner back. I chose to use Stamping Bellas solid flowery weeds for the sympathy card I made. Nicks uncle was a simple man like my father so I tried to keep it as simple as possible. May Uncle George rest in piece and may his family find the strength to get through this difficult time. We are all there for them.

Being away from my craft room has been hard the second card is one I had colored in at the beginning of the month and finally finished last night.

Thank you all for coming and viewing the cards I have made and I hope you all have a good Monday!
