Sweet....

Needless to say this weekend has been difficult for me and my family. My gram was laid to rest on Saturday. She is at peace and in a better place, but I will miss her being a part of my life. On top of that I got a nasty cold. My head has been clogged, I have a cough, and I have been so run down and tired! I haven't crafted all week, and I really feel a bit out of the loop! I am slowly trying to get back into my normal routine with everything.

I have a Crafty Secret's card to share with you today. I actually made it a few weeks back and just never got around to showing it. (Which is a good thing, I had some back up cards! ; ) It uses the new set, Queen Bee. I colored it with Copics and a Spica glitter pen. The kraft doily is by Maya Road and I cut out the center with a circle Spellbinder's die. I popped it up with foam circles. I added a doily behind the lower half, a bit of Pink Paislee twine and a stick pin to finish it off.
I love Pink Paislee twine....... : )

And of course I added a touch of glitter to his wings.........

Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers..........it is greatly appreciated by myself and my family. (Because I know they read my blog daily!) : )

Have a restful Labor Day to you my friends!

So sorry to hear about your Grandmother and to catch a cold on top of everything. As you said she is in a better place but her passing leaves a big hole in your heart. Take care of yourself and know you have lots of friends to comfort you as you go through this phase of your life.
