You need to know how much I care!!


Hi Everyone!! Todays post is on the melancholy side. I found out yesterday that one of my fellow DT Sisters from The Rubber Cafe was struck and by a car and killed. Now how mind boggling is this blog/internet world...I only knew Michelle Hale from posts and visiting her blog but this has really affected me. I cant get her out of my mind. I dont think alot of us realize how much we can influence, inspire and encourage each other just by the words in our blogs and even the work that we post which may touch someone.
I just wanted to take this time to let ALL of you who visit me know just how glad I am for the friendships, inspiration and constant kind words that you leave. You have all touched my life in many ways. More than you can possibly know!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate you all and you are all a BIG part of my life whether you realize it or not!!

Quickly let me tell you about this card made from a stamp from The Rubber Cafe called Charming Kitty. I think this kitty is the cutest thing in his little witch hat and that sentiment is cute and spooky at the same time.My dp is from DCWV Fall Stack. I colored my image with copics and cut it out with Labels 2 nesties. Cardstock is all SU, ribbon is from Michaels, charm was in my stash and I cut my sentiment out with oval punches from SU. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Take a moment today and everyday to really appreciate the people in your life whether here in blogland or in your "real" life.

BIG Hugs from me to you!!
Ann

That is awful Ann!! You are right that so many of our blogging friends have touched us in a special way. I am so thankful for you and our friendship. Hope we can meet up soon!

A dear friend of my husband and I was in an accident this weekend. He shattered the vertebrate in his back but thankfully he is not paralyzed and still living. I so feel for the family and friends of Michelle.

Your card is beautiful. Love the kitty!! Too cute!

hugs,
Chris

Oh, Ann, I am so sorry to hear that. Sometimes people who we only know for a short time or in a certain capacity touch our lives so much that it leaves us even more shocked and unable to stop thinking about it when something happens.

You are so sweet to honor your friend and also honor all of us by letting us know we're appreciated...and know that it goes both ways! I am SO blessed to be getting to know you better and to know Jodi, too. You guys are awesome!
