You're On My Mind

Since February/March of this year, I have belonged to a Close To My Heart club and once a month we all meet at my friend Nikki's house. November was our last month for this year and hopefully we will start up again in Feb/Mar of '09. I guess the reason I am telling you this goes along with this card. In our group there are 2 sisters, Sarah and Karman who are both a lot of fun. Sarah and her husband Mark welcomed a beautiful baby girl, Veronica on Feb 29 of this year and her younger sister Karman makes absolutely beautiful cards, actually anything she creates is fabulous. Sadly Karman passed away on Sunday after a fierce battle with some health issues that have plagued her for a while now. I made this card to send to her sister Sarah as I am unable to attend the service which is actually today and wanted her to know that I am thinking of their whole family at this very difficult time.
Everything I used is SU including the cute little flourish die cut thingies which are from one of the Sizzix dies, love them!! I added Stardust stickles to them after I glued them down. I stamped the image in Chocolate first and then soft sky and the same with the sentiment, not sure if you can see if well enough though. It was stamped on SU Shimmery cs and along with the stickles, it is really beautiful IRL! I think this pict captures the shimmer from the paper as well as the glitter from the stickles.
That's all I have for today. While I am here though I thought I would take a moment to mention that my posts may be rather sporadic as we are getting ready for the holiday season and such. Kirsten only has Mon & Wed left of school and then she is off until Jan 5th. I am so excited about that and really hope both of them enjoy sleeping in...I know I will...if I can convince them too!! I still have some shopping to take care of and hope to get that done this weekend. We are inf or some crappy winter weather though...about -25 C all the way to -40 C with the windchill...yikes...I think I'll be staying close to the fireplace if that 's the case!!
Have a super weekend and thank you for visiting!!
