Create Giveaway and Simon says anything goes!

Hi Friends! I sure hope your not tired of seeing this MME paper because I love it so! I love the colors of this line a lot.

It's been raining here this week any tomorrow starts more hot weather. It's suppose to be 100 tomorrow and 112 by Sunday, wow!!

Entering this at Simon Says Anything goes challenge!




A dear friend passed away last Sunday from Cancer. He was diagnosed only 2 months and 1 day to the day he passed. The funeral is Saturday. He was 54.  I opted to make his wife a "I'm here for you" card instead of a sympathy card. One thing he said to me was "Take care of my girl." I worked with him years ago when I was in my 20's and then Kathy came to work with us and that's how I met her. She went on to have kids and worked elsewhere but we stayed in touch.  We needed someone in my office about 6 years ago and I asked her to come to work with me and she did! We are blessed to have her :-) My heart goes out to her and their daughter's and family.

Another note:
 Cancer touches at least someone we know , sometime in our lives and am honored to be part of the company I work for. We were awarded the Sapphire award for raising over $15,000 for Relay for Life. We are super proud of our team !

Charlene, this is such a pretty card for your friend. Cancer is such an ugly thing and took one of my brothers at 19 yrs. of age. Hooray for your team raising so much money.
