If this is your first visit on a wednesday you can head over to our hostess Julia's blog where this blog hop originates to see how to play along.
this was done for my gpa for Judy's dare to get dirty challenge. and the flaps and background are all premade die cuts with a view pre made card bases. ( textured from the days before people owned embossing folders) so, the first card front was cut on the 1/2 diagonal and the other was reversed so the flaps would open like a hug if you slide the ribbon off the bottom. a third card was cut completely in half and I used a square die to make it a mat for the inside. and the smooth back piece was used to cut wings from.
we lost my gma this last weekend and the hardest part right now is my son does not know. ( he is doing field training) so, I am really kinda hoping I can get to him before he gets to facebook at the end of the work week.
sometimes social media is not the most "great" thing kwim? It shocked me to pieces when hubs aunt passed away a few years ago instead of phone calls they just made a post on facebook. that is not what happened in my family but, at this point there are posts that are all condolences between family members and I just have my fingers crossed that my son does not see them until I can get a call through. so if you could cross your fingers on that one I'd appreciate it. I don't know how many desks I will visit this week. I know I have not been blogging much and so, I suspect the whole online thing is going to fall by the way side for me for the next little while.
eta: I was able to get through to my son before he found the news on facebook so, that part is good.
