Beer Card

I haven't posted in a couple of days.  I haven't known what to say about anything since Saturday when my BIL passed away in a car accident.  I cried for a few days straight and now it's time to create those sympathy cards...I don't know what to even write inside of them.

I'm the type of person that needs to talk to people when I'm upset. I'm very grateful for my one girlfriend who called me to check up on me and cried with me on the phone. She is truly a remarkable friend and I'm very blessed to have her in my life.  All you need is one really good friend!

I know I have all of you, my online friends, who keep me smiling and I'm so thankful for all of you too.  The one thing that got me through this weekend was reading everyones blog updates and looking at all your cute crafts. :) 

So, this week I'll be posting my sympathy cards (and probably keep busy by *attempting* to color more digis!) but for now, I'll post a card I made before this weekend happened.  A fun beer card for my Uncle!

I'm sorry for your loss. *HUGS* Prayers are with your family. That's a great beer card by the way. I can never make guy cards, they just don't come out right for me.

Oh Cely - I am sooooo very sorry to hear your sad news. Losing family is always so hard and to me it seems even worse, then the person is taken from us very young and very suddenly. My heart is with you and I do know sadly, how awful it feels.

I lost my brother in a terrible accident and he was only 33, at that time. I still miss him every day and wish he was still here!!... Like you I also had a great support system and reached out to my friends both online and off. It was so hard and I did my best to help my Mom deal with her hurt and pain took me over a year to begin to deal with my hurt and loss.

Please take care ! Special thanks again for all the sweet comments you are always leaving on my blog! You are a dear sweet person and I'm so sorry you are in such pain!
