First up is a card I made, inspired by this post at Damask Love.
Because the deer (cut with my silhouette) is fragile, this card was hand delivered.
and some talk --
Christmas 2013 was my first Christmas without my mom or anyone in my childhood family. My brother died earlier this month and that left me the last of my immediate family. My brother lived a sad difficult life and his death was a shock. More than anything it was a tremendously sad thing. I am glad my mom was not alive for this as it would have been beyond her.
I spent a few weeks blown over by the sheer sadness, but got my bearings this week. I am happy to say that I spent a delightful Christmas surrounded by my son, husband, mother in law, and my brother in law and his family. Lots of fun, music, noise, teasing and games. Did I say food? Wow, my wonderful sister in law cooked her heart out.
Hope to be back stamping soon and hope that those of you who celebrate Christmas enjoyed it.
