So for the last week or so, my life has turned upside down, and I have been on an emotional rollercoaster.... My mother passed away on Saturday, all too soon. I am still in shock of what happened, and everything seemed so sudden. I know in time, I will talk more of what happened... but today I wanted to let my blog readers know, how hard it has been for me this past week or two.
Papercrafting has always been my stress relief... my happy place... where I usually can draw on the good, and left my troubles subside for awhile.... So yes upon returning home, I heading to my craft room, and inbetween the phone calls and tears, I crafted some cards...
Today I thought I would share one that I made for the ICU Nurses and Doctors at the Kingston General Hospital. I have to say I have never been in a position where I even know what an ICU is run like (besides what you see on TV)... but every single nurse and doctor were so attentive, understanding, and helpful. I can not say enough about the wonderful care my mom received, and for that I am thankful!
The card I made was of course using the Stamps of Life (sizzix) stand up card! I love these cards... because they look good and are so easy to use. I also used the triplets butterflies set and mini flower dies from the stamps of life.
Here is the card when standing up:
