You're Out of This World!
The past week has been quite difficult. Last Sunday, we learned that the mother of one of my dearest friends was tragically killed in a horrific parking lot tragedy while staying in Florida (CNN Report). My friend is shattered and I would like to ask those of you who pray to offer up a prayer for the Vanderlaan/Koopmans family - as well as all those affected. My heart grieves with them.
We also learned that our beloved beagle is in heart failure. Last week, he suddenly collapsed in the kitchen. I thought he had died as he was completely unresponsive. It was awful!! However, he did come to and we've had a couple of trips to the vet, learning that he'll (hopefully) be with us another 3-6 months. For now, with medication, he's happy but we've got some pretty tough decisions to make in the near future.
We have a sketch challenge for you at My Craft Spot this week. With all that has been going on - plus winter storms with power outages, I did somehow manage to find a bit of time to craft and made a Valentine's card for one of my boys.
I based my card on the posted sketch which was designed by my talented design team sister, Heather. The fun astronaut cut is a file from Lettering Delights, although I changed the flag to read "love u", cutting the letters with My Craft Spot's Small Alphabet metal dies. The mat was embossed with a Cuttlebug Stars folder. I stamped a sentiment from Build a Valentine and used two Ribbon Banners - Wavy cuts for my banner. I finished things off with some Caribbean sequins.
Please head over to My Craft Spot to check out the rest of the wonderful design team inspiration - and to link up your own project for a chance to win this week's prize!
