Quick Post & A Note. . .

*Edit:  It's Thursday morning. . .and I'm back and ready to let my creative juices do their thing.  :)  Thank you for your understanding while I took a short break to take care of myself.  Also, thank you for your kind comments and sweet emails sent about my son Chase. . .You all rock! :)  XOXOXO.  Look for a new post featuring a few projects this afternoon.  ;)  Thanks.

Hi there! :)   I just wanted to do a real quick post to show you. . . 1) a couple of Thank You cards I made today & 2) to let you know that I will be taking a few days off from posting here on the blog.

Here are the Thank you's I whipped up:
Recipe:
CS:  Stampin' Up
DP:  Echo Park
Punches and Dies:  Martha Stewart (butterflies), Fiskars (threading water), My Favorite Things (label)
Stamp & Cork:  My Favorite Things
Ink:  Ranger Distress Ink
Pearls:  Kaisercraft

(These are more masculine because they are for my oldest son to give out)  :)
Recipe:
CS:  Stampin' Up!
DP:  Studio Calico Kit (My Mind's Eye)
Ink:  StazOn
Dies:  Spellbinders
Stamp:  Studio Calico
The Yummiest Burnt Orange Gathered Scallopy Velvet Ribbon:  Maya Road :)
Other:  Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher

All of the cards were made for some very special people that we owe BIG Thank You's to.  We are so lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives that so often do kind things for us. 

Second, I'm gonna be taking a few days off from the blog world.  It's the 5th Anniversay of the passing of our Sweet Baby Chase (this Friday). . .With that said, I've been super-emotional.  I think that I just need to take some time away and allow myself to grieve for him. *But I'll be back. . .promise! :)

Here are a few pics I'd like to share:

Lisa,

Knowing you, Chase had a life full of love. You can even see it in the photos. Although his life was short, he was lucky to have you and his brothers.

You and your family are in our hearts on this anniversay,

Sandra & Jacob
