~~ Sympathy card for my cousin Larry ~~

Hi Y'all...its been ages since I made and posted a card and I knew the day would come when I would have to make this card for my cousin, Larry. His sweet sweet wife, Barbara, lost her 6 year battle with ovarian cancer a few weeks ago. 8 days later my dear, precious Aunt Evelyn, passed away as well. Aunt Evelyn is Larry's mother . Needless to say, we have all been in a tailspin. Altho both of these beautiful women had suffered for years and we knew the end was close for them both, we were not as prepared as we thought we were. I saw this beautiful sentiment on a Susie B card on the Cricut Message Board and I knew when I saw it that I wanted to make Larry a card with this sentiment. My Aunt as well as Larry live on the beautiful gulf coast of Alabama and the sentiment seemed perfect for a card. I used Life's a beach for all the cuts, except for the corners and they were cut using Jasmine.Lots of layering,glitter and a few lil gems completed the card.Thanks so much for stopping by.Please keep us all in your Mother is especially sad at the loss of her sister.



Joy, this is a beautiful sentiment and a great lighthouse. What a time for Larry to go through all this. For all your family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.


Very nice Card,different love the colors ,the design.

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
