365 Cards Challenges #85, 86, &91

Challenge #86 @ 365 Cards This Will Be Grape

Challenges #85 &91 @ 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday & Front & Center

It was the best of times it was the worst of times that is how I would describe this last week. The best and most important thing that happened was my wonderful Daughter graduated from high school. She was in the Nationla Honer Society so she came in first and also received her diploma before the rest of the student population. The whole ceremony was awesome and my Husband and I could not be prouder.
The bad part of this week was having to attend the funeral services for a dear friend who lost her MIL. It has been a rought couple of months for her and her family. I am also taking care of my Step-Dad trying to help him deal with the aftermath of the divorce from my Mom. He suffers from chronic depresion and he is really not doing well. I will be taking him to the doctor on Monday and hope we can find some answers. His children (my step siblings) want him to move back to Chicago but he does not really want to leave Arizona. He has been here since 1979 and I am sure would not be able to handle the winters back there. The problem is he really should not be living alone and we have no room for him but his daughter does. Keep him and the family in your prayers please. I know we can and will get through this.

Needless to say with all this activity and stress my stamping time was very limited. I knew I had to get busy when I could to get this weeks cards completed and posted. Well I think I have done it. Here are two of the cards and one is a double

Well that is all for now I need to post the rest of my cards and get them entered at 365 Cards. I am hoping next week will be a little less hectic and I will have more time to stamp and post. Until then take care and find a little time to stamp something.

Peace Out
