Sorry I've been gone so long

Since the beginning of December life has been crazy.. Christmas was wonderful... Gram was beautiful.. She spent the day enjoying family..
New Years morning the call came... Gram had passed away. To say it was sudden, unexpected, confusing and devastating is an understatement. Gram was so healthy just a few days prior. She was a beautiful 91 YO woman who loved her family above all and left a legacy to show it. 6 children, 11 grandchildren and 15 great great grand children. The days that have followed have been a blurr of sorrow and tears. Gram, I will miss you each and every day.

When it was time to leave Christmas night I scooted in along side my Aunt to give Gram a kiss goodbye never realizing it would be the last time. Our last words were...
Those words will live forever in my heart until I go home and Gram is there waiting for me.

Needless to say, I've have no stamping mojo.... My BFF gave me a home work assignment last weekend that forced me into my stamp room. I had to make something that I would have sent to Gram if she were alive. I have a few thank-you's that I need to send after the funeral... So here's what I made. This card uses..

Stamps.. Damask (Lizzie Anne), Thank you (SUP)
Card stock... MME DS paper, brocade blue, close to cocoa and very vanilla (SUP)
Ink... brocade blue, river rock and close to cocoa (SUP)
Accessories... MS chocolate twill ribbon, Angel Wings shimmerz

This picture was from Christmas '07 and it's one that makes me giggle every time I think of it. This shows Gram's true spirit. My Uncle attached his deer horns to her walker and she was gonna use 'em to get through the halls at the home.

Look how beautiful Gram and Grandpa were.... This picture was taken in 1945...

Gram.... I miss you terribly and will miss you each and every day. I LOVE YOU !!!!
