Life has a way of hitting you in the guts sometimes. Today I learnt a very dear friend of ours passed away yesterday. He was only 61 and such a fantastic person. He had prostrate cancer and despite having it removed late last year and undergoing chemo and radiation, he succumbed to this viscous disease. This is an day we won't forget as it was hubby's birthday.
We had been down to visit Mark in April and were dismayed to see how unwell he was. He lives about 2 1/2 hours south of here. For weeks we have been saying we really should go visit... but now it's too late. We will travel down on Saturday to his funeral to say our goodbyes.
This really has made my day feel sad. So I came home from work and did what makes me happy.... make some cards. I did some water colouring as that always makes me feel better.
I printed the Tiddly Inks image onto some new Tim Holtz water colour paper. I used a Copic to colour her face and then Derwent Inktense pencils for the rest and then a water downed Gelato for the background. The red panel on the card was embossed with a Couture Creations Christmas (not that you can see much of it!) The corner is a La La Land die. The sentiment was part of the digital image. I finished with a little poinsettia. Entering into the challenge at Simon Says Stamp
Thanks for taking the time to visit. I really do appreciate it. Take care
