This is actually a card that I made a year ago before I started my blog, so it never got posted here. It might look familiar to some of you who would have seen it in my SCS gallery though. I have the digi stamp of this Word Art by Paper Makeup Stamps and I enlarged it here to really make that saying the focal point of this card.
This card just kind of sums up my mood right now. After a difficult week of my grandfather's health failing, he passed away on Thursday night. Thankfully, I had the chance to speak to him over the phone, even though he couldn't speak back to me. But I know from my aunt, that he recognized and understood me while I talked to him. And each of my sons played a song on the piano for him, as music was always an important part of his life. He was a great fiddle player. Even though we lived far apart, he never missed a birthday or Christmas or anniversary for me and my children. You could count on a card or package in the mail from Grandpa Red. He had red hair, thus the nickname.
So no new stamping from me for now. It's been a week to focus on family and now we'll be gathering with everyone in Ohio for the funeral. I'm looking forward to seeing extended family that I've not seen for a long time and celebrating my grandfather's life of daring adventure with them.
