THE WINNER IS.........

Hi everyone, how are you? First I want to thank you all for taking the time to visit and enter my CAT CANDY TREAT!!! I loved reading all your comments and it really meant a lot to me. Ok the winner is...........................



****Thanks again everyone for your kind words! Congrats, Amy, please email me your info; my email is on the right side bar there.************
I would like to leave you with a card I made for my DH's son. Well actually it is for his son, Eric's girlfriends' MOM. Ok, did you follow along there? It has been a little somber around here. To make a long, long story short, Eric (my stepson) was dating a girl for quite some time. He met her at RIT, in New York. They lived in the same dorm and that's how they met, several years ago. Ok, I am getting into story mode, sorry. She had Cystic Fibrosis and was in the hospital for the past 3-4 months, awaiting a lung transplant. She passed away on Sunday afternoon; she was soo young and soo smart. She was absolutely AWESOME with Kyah too. It is so sad! Although I know she is no longer suffering, it still is tough. I didn't get to see her a whole lot, but when we did see her she was always so nice. She was also, always, so attentive to Kyah. I think it's even more sad to know the life this young lady could have had. From what I understand, she and Eric were making plans for the future. So, if you would, please keep my stepson in your prayers, that he may get throught this tough time. My DH did not want a card that was depressing, he wanted a classic type card with no sentiment. He wanted something "pretty", as he put it. So here it is. I hope you'll like it. I know it is plain, but, I think it is classy. I had gotten some embossing powder, on my last ACMoore trip and I used it here, for the first time. I think it is a beautiful color. I also used my Kaisercraft Pearls, in Pewter, that I got from LIMELIGHT PAPERCRAFTS. I really LOVE these pearls! I thank you all for stopping by and hope you'll visit again. Until next time, please.........................ENJOY LIFE!!!!! ***I just took another pic, the ones below didn't show how beautiful the embossing turned out~

Dear Jacquie,
What a terrible thing to happen to a lovely young lady. I am keeping your step-son and the rest of both families in my prayers.
I don't think you could have made a more lovely card!
