A Breather

 DSCF5360

Hello, peeps!  It’s been a rough weekend…very, very rough.  A friend from church took his own life and I am needing to spend time with his wife, so I will be taking a blogging break this week.  I will share one card with you that I made over the weekend, since I didn’t get to do a Christmas card last week; this is EASY---six pieces of Be of Good Cheer DP punched with the Postage Stamp punch and some matching Cherry Cobbler ribbon and a line of sentiments, and it was good to go:

Too bad I didn’t do as good a job with my SAMJ on this card as I did on yesterday’s!  Oh well!  I’ll leave you with a couple pix of Cassidy eating a popsicle…the expression is priceless!  And if you could pray for my friend Brenda as well as her two sons, Jason & Evan, it would be a comfort to us all!

Great card- love the simplicity! I'd love to say take it easy and enjoy the week but I don't think that's possible under the circumstances. Sorry that this happened- I'll be thinking of you, your friend and her family.
