Bridge of Hope

Hi everyone. Sorry I've been quiet lately, but there's been a lot going on in the last week.  My mom is still recovering wonderfully from her knee surgery, but unfortunately in the midst of all that, my father-in-law passed away.  We just had his funeral services yesterday and all went well....so now it's just a matter of letting Dan, my MIL and BIL grieve and deal with all the emotions that go along with it. One day at a time, right?


I made this sympathy card (for a friend who lost her grandfather) this morning using one of the brand new July sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I was lucky enough to win the whole July release just by leaving a comment on Cathy McCauley's blog (thank you, Cathy and Korin for drawing my name!)...and I think this bridge from "Bridge of Hope" is my favorite. So pretty!  It's a quick CAS card, 4.25" x 5.5" with rounded corners, some DP and ribbon.


Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  {{hugs}}
