Sad news and some good news..

I haven't been blogging much this week due to my grandmother passing away on Monday, making this the saddest week I can remember. I'm over the chock and have come to terms with her death now and making cards gets my mind going. I love how this hobby can be used as therapy. But I still cry my heart out. I had I dream that I went to heaven to ask her to come back to me, but she said no. I couldn't understand why and when I asked her, she said it was because she could smoke in heaven. I had been trying to get her to quit smoking for a while now. I woke up and laughed, that would have been her exact answer if it was in real life. I'm happy for her that she does not need to feel any pain anymore but so sad that she is not here with me anymore. I miss her like crazy!!!

In my therapy I made a card which brings me to my good news, my best friends sister just had a beautiful baby boy! So he is getting this card. His name is Henrik and is just the cutest thing! :)

Here's the card I made to welcome him to the world:

I also made my card for next week's Cupcake Craft Challenge but I cant show you that until Monday. I wont be blogging much next week either as my cousins from the US are coming over for the funeral and I'll be spending the short time they are here with them.

Sorry to hear the sad news about your grandmother, I'm sure your grandmother would not want you to be sad but to remember all the happy times just like your dream about your grandmother made you smile. Enjoy the time you have with your cousins and celebrate the life of your grandmother x
