Thank You!

Hi! Long time no see!

Life has been rough the past months. My father lost his struggle against cancer a couple of weeks ago. He went peacefully in his sleep, at home, and we were all there with him giving him all our love and support.

I miss him so much, my heart aches.

Many friends and neighbors have supported us the past months. And it feels good that my first cards after a long break are thank you cards for these people. I made a few cards of the same design, using Seize the Sketch #7.


Yep, there are rain drops on the card… awful weather around here. It never stops…

The papers are from MME and the flower stamps are wonderful Heartfelt Creations Tattered Blossoms.

Here is the sketch:

Thank you for stopping by!

Oh Tessa, so sorry to hear about your father. I know how rough it is to lose those you love. I lost my Sister two months ago. I will be thinking of you and your family as you go through this.

Your card as always is absolutely gorgeous. So happy you found time to join us at Seize the Sketch.
