Grief

I was not sure I would get this post up today because I am struggling with my words.  My Grandmother passed away yesterday.  My mind is racing with thoughts so please pardon me as I try my best to word what I am sharing today.
This is my first week as a design team member for Sentimental Sundays.  Our challenge this week was to use a sketch designed by Dorcas.  Here is her sketch.  There are 22 examples by the design team on the blog to inspire you.  The team did an amazing job this week with their cards and I will say if you can't find one that you like then you can flame me  because the diversity is incredible and the talent is out of this world!  Unsure what the word means? Check below.

Urban Dictionary ddefinition of flame:



To insult someone electronically, or otherwise. Sometimes to be a group insult.

Okay so my card:
I used a sentiment from the new "Gratitude" set which includes 7 different greetings in over 70 formats.  I worked with several challenges when completing this card because as I mentioned, I am addicted to them.
My friend Pam sent me this kit from Cocoa Daisy for the month.  Almost everything came from it excpet the the lace, bling, and button.  Thank you Pam!
Aud Sentiments: #14 "Thanks" **There is awesome blog candy to sign up for!**
Daring Cardmakers: "Topaz" I had no idea Topaz is available in so many colors.  My first thought was of the blue Topaz and then I read about the variety of colors it is available in.  Wow!  Thanks for enlightening me!
My Sketch World: "Jan's November Challenge-Thanks and a button" She is offering a RAK at the end of the month if you join in so what are you waiting for?
OCC: "An Attitude of Gratitude"
S2G: "Use Thanks"  There is a blog hop you should see! 
There is Magic in the Air: "Thanks"  A new  digital site I found with some super cute images!



Thanks for stopping by!

Amy, please accept my deepest condolenses on the passing of your DGM. I too am struggling as my GM was rushed to the hospital yesterday with trouble breathing, she is 95. And my uncle is also hospitalized with internal bleeding. On a smaller note, your card is beautiful!
