My cousin Mark passed away from a long battle w/scleroderma (it's a disorder where your skin, joints, organs harden and become brittle). He was a kind, gentle, caring man and such a fighter. We've been attending family gatherings since Wednesday and last night was the wake/memorial.
The first card that I made for my uncle, aunt and my cousins is pretty simple, I finally opened my top note die and I used shimmery green paper. Then I stamped the sentiment and image on w/ versamark shimmer gray ink.
The 2nd card I made for his wife and daughter was for encouragement, I can't imagine what it is like to lose your best friend and spouse and have to carry on. They have been incredibly strong and I wanted to remind them of that and that they will be able to carry on w/o him, but that his memory lives on and that he had left a last impression on their lives forever. I used a popcorn the bear image and colored it w/ my copics- I think it came out decent.
Anyway, life reminds us that it's too short and that we need to constantly tell people that we love them.
Take are and have a great week!
