Hello, Yesterday, I said goodbye to a friend of mine that passed away much too young. Carol was a fellow card maker and a Middle School Science teacher too. Hubby was a coworker of hers for many years. Hubby and I attended the funeral together. It was quaint and absolutely heartfelt, and let’s just say perfect. She would have loved it. I could feel her smiling down from above as the songs were sung. As I was making my card today, I couldn’t help but think of Carol and her family. I will miss my friend, our talks in the car on the way to our monthly card club, and our luncheons or dinners we often shared together. I will miss her yes, but am also very thankful she is no longer suffering. She fought a hard battle for the last three years and never got to enjoy her retirement. Cancer Sucks!
As I began today, I had these two challenges in mind; CAS Watercolour Challenge and The Flower Challenge. Over at CAS they asked us to use the Color Wheel. We were to select two color hues at opposite ends of the color wheel. As you can see above, I chose red and green. Over at The Flower Challenge, it’s still Anything Goes.
I can’t take credit for this layout, I was truly inspired by this stunning card by Debbie Olson. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have stopped by and stared at it.
Card Details: Water-coloring and heat embossing, Gina K-Sweet Cameilla stamp set, and Verve’s Sentiment.
