It's our youngest son's birthday tomorrow - he will be 22 - where did that time go! I knew I wanted to use SU's Great Sport stamp set but inspiration was lacking due to events that happened during the week. I decided to do a search and managed to find some great ideas on Splitcoast Stampers and have lifted this card by Yvette. Colours used are Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit from the new In colours. Embossed background, papers from new In Colours paper pad and sentiment from SU's Curly Cute stamp set. Finished off with some twine from my stash.
The reason for my inspiration going is that sadly my father-in-law passed away on Thursday evening. Thankfully he died peacefully in his sleep and didn't appear to be in any pain. His family were with him so he was not alone and while we are sad of his passing we believe it to be a happy release for him - he had not been a well man for many months. I know he will be at peace and in pain no longer and we are all comforted by that.
It has sadly taken a little off the celebrations for our youngest son but we are going out bowling this evening to help him celebrate - life has to go on.
