In Memory Of...

Here is a card that I made for our friend's family. His Grandma passed away a week ago after battling cancer for 5 years. Joyce was such a lovely lady and we miss her dearly, however, we are glad to know that she is no longer suffering anymore. My hubby and I are very close to the whole family so there was a lot of love put into making this card. If you look close I made an angel hatpin in the collection of flowers on the left. I love how the BG Wisteria paper looks so elegant. The sentiment was a verse that I found on the internet and made on my computer.
The finished inside of the card:

Well yesterday we got back from our mini vacation for my hubby's convention. Now, today we leave for my family's yearly camping trip! YAY....it's going to be so much fun!!!! We borrowed our friend's camper and got it packed last night. Now it's just to finish packing my clothes and bathroom stuff. Oh how I hate packing, especially because I hardly even got unpacked yet! Hopefully the weather is good for this weekend. We are supposed to get some big storms tonight (EEEEEKKKK)!!!! Hopefully after tonight all the storms are out of the way! Talk to you all on Monday!!! I will try to get another post scheduled for this weekend to keep you company while I am away! :)

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!
