My first tent card and some sad news

The last couple of days have been pretty sad around here. I've made some amazing friends since I moved to Estevan, and the friends that I'm closest to, had a huge death in the family yesterday. My friends Dad was out farming and a bale of hay fell on him and crushed him, killing him. I am in total shock, and just don't feel like we can do enough for this wonderful family. I've been thinking about how I would feel if I lost one of my parents, and I can't even bear to think about it. I can't even imagine what they must be going through, because this is going to change their whole life, now they may have to sell their house in town and move out to the farm, so they can take care of the farm, because there is no one else who can. I can't believe how a persons life can change in minutes!!!
I know that my husband and I will be praying for strength for this young family, and we know that God will guide them in the very difficult decisions they are going to have to make.

Now on to something happier!
After watching my amazing Mother make tent card after tent card, I thought that maybe I should try it out! This card was so easy to do!
Stamps: Magnolia, Hero arts
Ink: Versafine black, Memento black, SU old olive
Paper: Georgia pacific, SU, MME just dreamy
Accessories: may arts ribbon, metal dots from Hobby lobby, prima flowers

Wishing you a great day.
