Belles n Whistles DT Call

Hello my friends out in blog land! I hope you all had a Happy Mothers Day. Mine was just ok. My great-grandmother passed away Sunday around 9pm. I had gone down to see her on Saturday, I spent all day deciding whether or not to go. She couldn’t really open her eye’s just her left eye. She had Parkinson's and lost a lot of her muscle control, you couldn’t really understand her. Soon as I walked in the room I was balling! I hurried by her side, told her who I was. She started reaching for me I held her hands and told her I loved her. She tried to speak, I wish I knew what she was saying. When I left I couldn’t find it in me to say goodbye, I just said we gotta go Honey, (that’s what we called her) She said alright, which I could make out. On Sunday night I got the phone call she had passed. What a Mothers Day! She had lived a long and happy life, she was 91 years old, such an amazing woman!

All I have been wanting to do is make a card, to get everything off my mind. Today I was finally able to. I made this card for the Belle n Whistles DT call. I have applied at every single DT call they had so I couldn’t let this one pass by without trying!
