Hello Friends I found my Mojo

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

This has been a very tough week! YUCK!!!

I started these cards before the death of my brother Vince and just couldn't get myself to complete them. I didn't even go into my studio for several days. It is kind of like my Joy had left me. But, I thought one week was enough of that sadness business and I better dust my self off and move forward once again!
Here are a couple CAS cards I was working on and now have finished them.

Let me know what you think. I didn't even do anything to the inside (smile)

I don't know if you can see the stripped embossing on the bottom of the first card. It made me think of a fence. The bird was punched out and embossed with purple embossing powder. It looks really pretty in person.

The second card I was going to use it as an Easter card but looks like I will now have to use it as a sympathy card for my family. I cut strips of heavy bronze/silver double sided foil and ran them through the Big Shot with the Lattice Impression Folder and attached them together with a large glue dot in the shape of a cross. I then cut very thin strips of silver foil and wrapped that around the bronze color. I think it turned out nicely and they will like it.

My sister in law said she received the picture I sent of the three of  kids a few weeks ago, but she said Vince was pretty out of it by that time and didn't really get what it was all about. At lease she has a picture of him as a little boy to keep. She is a wreck so Please, Please, Please keep her in your prayers.
Thanks for stopping by.
