Life...

I'm quite sad today because my cousin's wife Janine lost her battle with cancer this morning. I can hardly bear it because she was my age and leaves behind two children that depended on her and loved her dearly. What is even harder to comprehend is that my cousin has now lost both parents (also to cancer) and now his wife in less than a year and a half. If you would say a prayer for Fred and his family today, I know he will feel it's comfort.

It feels strange to shift gears but I did want to share just a few more cards with you today...the new Magalogue is just around the corner and I know the owner of The Angel Company, Mischelle is super excited about it. That makes me excited to see what awaits us and I should have my pre order of Magalogues here next week some time.


This is inspired by Michelle Zindorf's style - I used an emboss marker to highlight just the butterfly and the flowers and then clear embossed them with a heat gun. It looks spectacular in the sun.


This card is quite bright...I used BIC markers to color in the image and then had to figure out a layout for the card. How do you make your cards? Papers first and then color? Or color and then scrounge desperately for the right papers? I went to a card I had in my SCS gallery that actually inspired a Wednesday Sketch Challenge. Pretty cool, huh?

I'm so sorry for your loss and more for the loss of your cousin. It might be VERY hard for him to keep going with so many looses to cancer disease.

I loved your butterfly card!
