Sad news.


Hi everyone. I'm home from vacation and back into the swing of things.

Sadly, I came home to bad news. My Godmother (and my mom's BFF from college) passed away, so we are pretty torn up. I was relatively close to my Godmother, and have called her Aunt Bunny since I was old enough to speak.
Some of you may remember the card I made for her to thank her "in advance" for her continued love and support. I'm sad to think she will never receive it...*sniff sniff*


The larger card above was made for a challenge at Simply Scrapping Crafts last week to "stamps a scene."
I've ALWAYS had trouble with scene stamping but was really happy with how this one turned out! 

All  stamps are Unity. The gold bird and gorgeous blue seam binding are from Bearydo Paperie.

Thanks for stopping by today, I'm glad to be back. Keep us in your thoughts...

So sorry to hear about your loss. The card you made for your Godmother is gorgeous - you should keep it somewhere special as a reminder of her.

PS No trouble evident with your stamped scene here -it's so cute!
