My dear brother-in-law Dave lost his nearly 3 year battle with lung cancer last week. My sister Kari went right away to help my sister Tami and I came in for the funeral. Tami has been such a trooper taking care of Dave; you may remember I visited them in February while he was in the hospital with pneumonia. Well, he recovered from that but the cancer had spread to his "good" lung. He didn't even last two months after that.
We're all glad he's not in pain anymore but I will miss him soooo much. We both love to read and we shared many books over the last 27 years - John D. MacDonald, John Sanford, Lee Child and many other authors. I made a bunch of sympathy cards - for my sister, the three kids and Dave's 3 siblings. Didn't get a photo of any of them but they were appreciated by all.
Now I'm visiting my parents and was able to pull out enough supplies to make a CCC card. Here's what I came up with using this month's sketch and the theme of friendship:
I used a Hero Arts Shallows folded card, My Mind's Eye papers (The Sweetest Thing Bluebell), a zig zag cling stamp from Hero Arts, and a sentiment from a clear set by Hero Arts called Friends.
Thanks for stopping and I hope you're living life to the fullest and doing what you love!
