FMS126 Cards

Hello Monday. I confess to not being quite myself these past few days. I live in a small farming community where everyone is either related or very good friends. Last Thursday, as I drove home from work, it felt like my world turned upside down. A distant relative on my husband's side passed away and his death is being ruled as suspicious. He was a very kind man, with children that went to school with mine. I feel like our sense of security has been shattered, and I know it will take time to get it back, though surely my faith in God will aid me in that pursuit. Just truly a devastating thing to overcome. 

So, on Saturday, I determined to pick up where I left on and create a couple of cards for my next workshop. It has always been my crafty therapy. Here they are:
First Card:
Paper: Pemberley (retired), White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamp: Art Philosophy (CTMH)
Inks: Creme Brulee, Outdoor Denim (CS)
Tools: Scallop Circle Punch, Micro-Tip Scissors, Paper-Piercer (CTMH), Honeycomb Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug)
Other: Foam Tape, Bitty Pearls (CTMH), Yellow Ribbon
Second Card:
Paper: Sophia (retired), Sweet Leaf CS, White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamp: Art Philosophy (CTMH)
Inks: Pear, Hollyhock (CTMH)
Tools: Paper-Piercer, Micro-Tip Scissors, (CTMH)
Other: Flamingo Dots (CTMH), Pink Embroidery Floss (DMC)

I am entering these cards into the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge #126. I would also like to enter the pink card into The Friday Mashup FM150 Seeing Stitches Challenge. Thank you for stopping by today. God bless.
