Goodbye

 I am so saddened to do this post, it has taken me awhile to get around to it.  A great woman in the cardmaking industry has passed away.  Her dear husband has kept many of us up to date on her health as she worsened and then came the news that she is now with our Lord and Savior away from all pain she has endured over the past few years.  Cheryl was always kind, uplifting and sweet as can be.  She shared her love of God so well on her blog with all her visitors too.  Even going through all her health problems over the years she would always tell me Connie the Lord is good, I lean on him everyday and he gets me through.  An amazing example for me and all of us who knew her.

Just before she passed I had seen this technique I came across on Pinterest and never tried before and when trying to figure out what I should do for her husbands sympathy card, I thought this might be nice.

You can find the Faux wood burning technique video HERE .


  • Hero Arts - Leaf cluster stamp with Canson Watercolor paper
  • The Greetery - Sentiment Suite - Thinking of you stamp
  • Distress Ink - Ground Espresso

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Connie

This was sad news indeed. Cheryl was kind and loving and thinking of others all throughout her ordeal. This has been hard on Walt and I know he'll appreciate your card. I'll have to look at the video. Cool technique!

It was so nice to give your friend a card that Connie so lovingly made. In the midst of his sadness he can feel Connie's friendship for them.
I also really liked this card of yours.

I too was so sad to hear of Cheryl's passing. She had so much kindness for so many in the crafting community. She was a real angel helping me when I became a Dirty Girl on SCS and I will never forget that kindness. This is an amazing card to send to Walt. I am sure he feels all the love she gave to so many in our crafting community.

Connie, I think Walt will really appreciate your kindness in sending this card to him.

I did not know of Cheryl's passing until I read your post.
It also makes me feel very said. She really was a lovely person. When my husband and I were going some difficult times years ago... She not only prayed for us and sent us encouraging emails. She sent me a lovely devotional. (which of course) I still have, last night I was reading the inside cover with the lovely letter she wrote inside...RIP Cheryl!
