Keeping busy

Well, I finally started stamping again. Trying to keep my mind busy and think about good, positive things. Here's the card I did for today's color challenge on SCS. I combined it with another challenge that a small group of us do ~ one of us picks a thread off the Need A Lift forum and we make a card and send it to that person. Makes you feel good to send a card to someone that needs cheering up. Lord knows I've received some wonderful cards the past few weeks that have helped me get through that particular moment, the least I could do is pay that feeling forward.
For this card, we had to use Holly's (Toy on SCS) sketch #3 from her blog and use a fave flower/foliage image. I love the images from Garden Silhouettes. I colored it with my SU markers and stamped it three times on the main kraft layer. I stamped the En Francais bg stamp in white craft on the larger green galore panel to soften the color. Also stamped the edges of it with All in a Row in white craft. The little flowers are a $1 punch from M's and the *bling* is from my SCS friend, Billie ~ thanks, sweetie!
I can't tell you all how MUCH I appreciate the prayers and kind words. I know the pain I feel will never go away, but I also know that the prayers help me deal with it. I still miss him so much and sometimes choose to just live in denial of it all. Again, thanks for your kind thoughts and prayers.
