Cutest Snowman Card... and Some Sad News



Oh my, isn't he just the cutest?

I wish I could take creative credit, but alas, I CASEd this from Stasia Sloma.

I didn't follow her instructions, but just hand cut a snowman shape out of thin chipboard to make a re-usable template.




On a sad note, my Dad passed away on Thursday last week.

He had been living in a care home for the past 5 1/2 years with dementia, following a head trauma.

I am thankful that I was able to travel to see him and say our goodbyes a few hours before he passed.

Bye, Dad.  

See you again one day.

Stamps:  Holiday Tags, Lifting Spirits
Inks:  Ruby, Black, Juniper
