angels...

it saddens my heart to post this today. my sweet sweet grandma passed away yesterday afternoon. although we knew it was coming, it just doesn't make it any easier. i'm just relieved that she is not suffering anymore. and as my heart is heavy, i went to my craft room for a little thearpy. i've had an idea for this stamp and sentiment for a card for a friend of mine, but i found tonight that i ended up making a card for myself. there is a wonderful, amazing, beautiful new angel among angels in heaven. my sweet grandma. so my friends with flair card is in honor of her.
