Bella friends

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

I used the OCC sketch for this fun card today. I also used the color challenge this week from The Pink Elephant, which was pink, brown, and white. The paper has glitter all over the flowers and is so pretty IRL. I think I'll be using some more of this paper real soon. I colored the RAK Bella with my CTMH markers. Bellas are so cute.

Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye
Stamps: Stamping Bella
Other: CTMH Buttons, paper flowers, and markers

I hope you're having a good day. We found out that Devin's grandpa passed on Saturday so he and the kids are leaving today for Idaho. Because of the timing, I wasn't able to take the time off of work. This grandpa was married to Devin's grandma who passed back in February.

A quick story about this. Christopher, my 6 year old, was saying his prayers last night. He blessed that Grandma and Grandpa would be resurrected. I thought it was so sweet. Plus it's good to know that he's paying attention to some of the things that we try and teach him. On that note, thanks for your visit and comments. They truly mean the world to me and lift me up.
