This will be a short post today…I don’t have the head to type today. My Father in Law passed away yesterday. As many of you know, my Mother in Law passed on Halloween, just a few short weeks ago. Losing her has been hard enough…but to lose both of them know has just sent my head spinning. We are doing our best to cope, but it’s been 4 extremely difficult months for my family. I decided to bring you another Cardinal card today. I thought that it was fitting. And it’s another easy card to make. Hope you like it. The focal images were stamped by repeating the holly leaves and the berries over and over. The single cardinal is sweet, and kind of majestic to me. I loved the gingham paper with these images too. The lighting is pretty crummy…sorry about that…but you get the idea of what it’s looks like, right? I added 4 topaz colored rhinestones to the corners for a little more pop. Now please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. And be sure to check back here tomorrow…there will be another awesome Smeared & Smudged Blog Hop! This time we will be featuring some rad digis from Tellen’s Place, one of our fabulous sponsors this month over on the forum. Have an inspiring day!
