Sunday - Card and some sad news

This morning we got the call we have been dreading for quite awhile now. My mother-in-law passed away. She was 89 and had been in hospital. Over the last few days her kidneys had shut down and none of her kids wanted to subject her to dialysis. Most of them got to see her over the weekend and I was down the week before so I did get to see her and spend an afternoon with her. She was a wonderful, sweet, woman and was always to sweet to me. She will be sorely missed. We are leaving Tuesday for the funeral.
I have several cards here to share today. First of all is my card for the CPS sketch this week. I just bought several lines of the Webster's Pages at the LSS the other day and when I saw this sketch I just knew something would fit from their holiday papers. Aren't they pretty!

Then through blog world I found a new sketch site Delightful Sketches and found this great sketch. Still in the effort of getting Christmas cards made I've made another card with the Basic Grey papers I have and one of the stamps I got at SUinks. Just came back and looked at this - BOY can you tell there was a little stress today - I need to redo this card - no sentiment! EEEK! Come back later this week please!

The next card I did with some Jenni Bowlin papers and Core'dinations cardstock. Love how the Core always adds just a touch of something extra to your card.

The next few cards I did for more of the challenges and tutorials over at My Sketch World. The first two are done with the Basic Grey papers and the last with some old SEI papers I had. The first cards are just little 3 X 3 cards and are so fun and easy! The next card was done for the vellum tutorial and the last was a sketch challenge.

Thanks for dropping by today.
