Life Happens...

I had a totally different post scheduled for today...but you can't always predict life, right?!? Well, Josh, my co-woker, went down to California this last weekend for his grandma's Hanukkah party. Unfortunately, she passed away Saturday night. The family extended their stay down there and had a memorial service on Monday.

Okay...had to pull out the Kiwi Kiss stash again, lol. But I couldn't make Josh a girly card. I so badly wanted to put glitter, rhinestones, pearls, etc on the card...had to really *restrain* myself. :) I did sneak a bit of ribbon on there.

ETA: Does my photo look like it has weird colors? My desktop and laptop vary A LOT with the monitor, so sometimes things look off on one computer and okay on the other.

Paper: SU
Stamps: Gina K (I think...I got this from Wish RAK), sentiment is PTI
SU Ribbon, PTI Buttons, Twine, and Copics


Another co-worker at our Payment Center (where Brent works) had her house burned down this past weekend too. They lost everything except for the clothes that they were wearing. I hope to get the children some new clothes this week.

With everything going on...I am blessed today to just be doing well. Everyone have a good hump day.

  27. This card is wonderful, I'm sure it will provide him with comfort knowing how many people he has in his life supporting him, I know that got me through my grandpa's death last month. It really forces us to think how blessed we are to have our homes and clothes when it's so easily taken away, it's great of you to help them out!
