I Have been MIA

Hi everyone.  I have been away for a week now to be with my Dad who had been in Grace Palliative Hospice for the past month.
It hurts me to say he passed away Tuesday August 24th.
I have a hole in my heart right now the hurts so much...he was my "rock"....he meant the world to me.  Right now I just feel so lost...........

This is one of my favorite pictures of him and I taken in 1959.

I miss you so much Dad.........I will always carry you in my heart.
Your Daughter

Squigglefly Challenge #62

Good morning everyone!  Welcome back for another Monday challenge at Squigglefly.  This week is Maria’s turn to challenge the team…….she has asked us to make a card using “HOT” colors!  Like reds, oranges…. etc.

Here is my card using the Squigglefly set called- Birthday Set.


I used Printmaster Express to print the flowers in colors.  The balloons I coated with clear nail polish.  I like it better than Diamond glaze.  It goes on smoother.
Now go to the Squigglefly Blog to see what Maria’s team have created.
Have a great week everyone!
