Rough Week

Oh boy. It's been a rough week. Emotionally rough week and add to that, I've been fighting a cold which I think is going into bronchitis. I've had headaches throughout the day from sinus pressure, too. Just feeling blah. My son comes back from camp today, though, so I'm really happy about that.

If you have been a reader of my blog for a while, you might recall me mentioning my Aunt Lyn. She had a double aneurism in mid-December. Well, her sister, Pat, had herself checked out and the doctors found a clot in her, too. She had surgery to remove it but has been fighting illness off and on since then and developed pneumonia. She was admitted to the hospital, the infection went septic and she died yesterday. My poor cousin is crushed. Her mom is still working on her recovery but they don't feel she's ready to know about her own sister yet. Pat is not my aunt but I've spent many vacations there that included her in them so I know her well enough to know the world has lost a very dear person.

A dear friend of mine lost her grandmother yesterday, too. Hugs to you, Joyce.

One thing I have been looking forward to, though, are the sneak peeks to the new Saltbox Studio line. Lexi has the most awesome card here, Becky has one here, Elena's is here, and I hope Mary Rose and Kelly have theirs up soon. This release looks awesome!

And because I don't want to leave you empty handed, here's a quick, easy peasy card I made recently. I don't think I've shared this one yet. I colored it with Copics and used a black eyelet for the tire.

I guess I have some 'thinking of you' cards to make today for my friends and family. Hugs out there to anyone that needs them.
