Wow! What a week! I'll fill you in on my absence in a moment, but first I have to say
To an amazing young lady named Rio. This sweet thing, when asked what she wanted for her birthday replied with a request that her money that would have been spent on her be donated to St Jude's Children's hospital!!! OMGoodness!! Doesnt that just make your heart melt! So her mother.... Betty of Simply Betty Stamps had this special Birthday Rio Emo image made up for her to sell and donate all the proceeds to the charity as well! I've made a card for Rio using her current FAV colours Lime Green, Purple and Bright Orange! Quite the combo! But it works for such a unique girl.
So Rio, I hope you have a FABULOUS day! My card is on route to you now.
As for my absence of late. My little family has been thru the ringer the past month. My husbands dear father was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in December and then passed away on January 28th. It's been a really tough time for us here, and while we're climbing up out of the sadness, it will take a long time for such a wound to heal. So I've been taking care of my family who desperatly needed me. Im starting to get some time to myself to craft and try to catch up with some DT work and well, just to craft to feel better myself.
Thanks for sticking with me thru my absence....and thru my periodic melt downs to those of you who know what Im talking about. :) Love you all.
