Thank you airplanes

I made this card today as a thank you for a good friend of my late husband.  He had not heard that he was gone and sent a CD with a video he took at an airshow of the Thunderbirds, along with a lovely song he had written.  He is a very good songwriter.   They met many years ago when my husband taught him to fly.  I wrote a personal note inside, giving him the sad news.

I love this marbled cardstock because it really looks like sky and makes a great background for airplanes.  The airplanes are a wood mounted rubber stamp that I bought at a used stamp sale.  It has no brand name on it, but it does have a $2 sticker on it so that must be what I paid for it.  The sentiment is a clear stamp that I won from Operation Write Home.  Both stamps are stamped directly onto the marbled cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Thank you friend

I made this card for my friend, Pat who sent me some nice cards.  The paper is by Basic Grey and the stamp is a new one from Studio G that I bought at WalMart.

Hanging in there

I just realized it's been over 2 weeks since my last post.  I'm living in a state of confusion these days.  I still have no desire to create cards.  I am attending bereavement sessions with Hospice.  This is a wonderful, helpful group of angels.  They help you when you need it most and seem to understand the kind of help you need, without being pushy.

I also have very good friends who are the only ones that really know my problems.  My doctor is very understanding and found a sleeping aid that gave me a good night's sleep without those horrible side effects.

I have found some new friends that are involved in similar situations.  I received this card from a very special friend, Pat.
