Angels In Heaven





As I made this card I could not help but think of my SIL who passed away 4 months ago with Cancer. It has been a hard time of adjustment for my brother. He not only lost his wife but his best friend. Ruth Ann, like me loved Christmas and this cute stamp from Connie Fong,  
reminded me of Christmas and Ruth Ann's decorations. I hope each of you will take time to tell someone you love how much they mean to you and enjoy the time you have with them.
I had such a fun time coloring this cute image and I know you will see more of her in the future. The pretty Christmas paper is from last years stash and seemed to work perfectly with this stamp. The  pretty die cut is by Yovonne. I am loving all of her dies and hope Santa slips a few in my stocking this year. 
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
My Song: Jealous of the Angels (Donna Taggart)
I didn't know today would be our last Or that I'd have to say goodbye to you so fast I'm so numb, I can't feel anymore
Prayin' you'd just walk back through that door And tell me that I was only dreamin' You're not really gone as long as I believe There will be another angel Around the throne tonight Your love lives on inside of me, And I will hold on tight It's not my place to question, Only God knows why I'm just jealous of the angels Around the throne tonight You always made my troubles feel so small And you were always there to catch me when I'd fall In a world where heroes come and go Well God just took the only one I know So I'll hold you as close as I can Longing for the day, when I see your face again But until then God must need another angel Around the throne tonight Your love lives on inside of me And I will hold on tight It's not my place to question Only God knows why I'm just jealous of the angels Around the throne tonight Singin' hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah I'm just jealous of the angels Around the throne tonight
