Thinking of You Lori

A couple weeks ago, my friend Lori lost her brother unexpectedly. I made this card for her and she's already gotten it. Just wanted to share what I made and proud of myself that I remembered to post it! Sometimes I mail stuff off and totally forget. I just love the K&Co Que Sera Sera paper and I got the Spring Song image from Wish RAK last spring.

Paper: K and Company
Stamps: SU, sentiment is PTI
Nestabilites, Copics, Prima Flowers, Pearls, PTI Buttons, Crystal Stickles, and EK Success Border Punch


Everyone have a great Tuesday! I hope today goes much better than my Monday. It was pouring down rain...and I forgot my laptop at home. So, yep, 2 trips to Renton and back to Maple Valley in the pouring rain! Thank goodness I've never forgotten it while I was teaching class, lol. Who's excited for the Biggest Loser?!?

  30. I'm so sorry for your friend's loss, that's so sad. Your card is very pretty and I'm sure she appreciates the thought.

    I'm reading this post a day late and I have to say I'm so bummed that Biggest Loser was preempted (sp?) by the Trail Blazer opener last night. I mean I like the Blazers, but come on. Now I have to try to find the episode on the internet. Maybe hulu.com? It actually did come on right after the weigh-in, so I saw who went home, but I want the details. :)
