Easel Sympathy Card
Unfortunately, the opportunity to use the new sympathy stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle came much too quickly, as my daughter-in-law, Jessica, lost her grandfather Monday night. I made cards for her, her mother and her grandmother like the one above. I drove to Huntsville, AL for the funeral and had some time to spend with my son, so that was good. I still remember when I lost each of my grandparents and what a deep loss it was for me. I enjoyed spending the time with Jessica and her family also.
One thing Jason and I did while I was there was to go back to the Botanical Gardens to see all the scarecrows....I will be sharing those. I was tempted to go visit a covered bridge that was 5.5 miles away, but the weather was threatening and I had to drive back to Atlanta. I will make it there another time.
Jason and Jessica live on a two lane country road and as I was coming back into Atlanta and the interstate was bumper to bumper and barely moving, I thought, "You know, living out in the country might not be such a bad thing!".
