Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Hello Life

~Dedicated to Grammy Bev~ 

We lost this beautiful lady last week & our hearts are broken. I was raised by my grandparents & losing her not even a year after losing my Grandma Mary has been especially challenging.
My grandfather is holding up ok & my Mom is doing a lot better than I thought she would, so that is good. I am very grateful for all the kind comments & wonderful support I have received from my Stampin Friends. xoxo

Welcome to this weeks ADT Blog Hop

I must admit that I really really really wish this wasn't our last post for the products we received in our March boxes. It was such an amazing mix of some many things & I could create for months before I played with it all...but next week we will be moving on. Waaaaah!
Anyway I decided to break out the fabulous Hello Life project kit & make a couple super simple cards...

I am pretty excited about all the bits & pieces that are included in this kit!
Especially love the black letter stickers!

Unfortunately the "Hello" card would not play nice so I couldn't get a decent close up of it. The silver foil strip kept showing up brown-grrrrr.

But I do have another card anyway so lets move on-

I made this one for my sweetheart. He is always so thoughtful & I wanted to let him know how much I appreciate him!

Ok lets go see what beauty Sarah has for us today!


  1. Mercedes I sorry for your lost :( even though your creativity is still living into your heart and I am sure that your creations should make her proud of you.

  2. I'm sorry for your loss.
    I like the cards.

  3. Cute cards Mercedes! Hugs from your stampin family!

  4. Mercedes, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Sending hugs Vicky x

    Your cards are just beautiful as always.

  5. So sorry to hear about your grandmother. It's always hard. And in the midst of things you still made beautiful cards. I love them!

  6. Such beautiful words for your Grammy. Thanks for being real and personal.
    Love your cards too. This is what I will be doing with my leftover bits and pieces now!

  7. Dear Mercedes, my thoughts are with you. I really know, how you feel. I grow up with my grandma and she was the lovliest lady of all. She makes me grateful for EVERTHING I am now. Remember her. There is a very beatiful rhyme, and when I am reading this, I feel her in my heart:

    "Wenn Du bei Nacht in den Himmel schaust,
    When you look the sky by night,
    wird es Dir sein, als leuchten alle Sterne,
    would it be for you all the stars are shining,
    weil ich auf einem von ihnen wohne,
    because I live on one of them,
    weil ich auf einem von ihnen lache.
    because I laugh on one of them.
    Du allein wirst Sterne haben,
    you alone will have stars,
    die lachen können.
    that are possible to laugh.
    Und wenn Du Dich getröstet hast,
    And if you have comforted you,
    wirst Du froh sein, mich gekannt zu haben.
    you 'll be glad you have known me."

    Antoine de Saint-Exupery

  8. Mercedes, in all the craziness I totally missed that you lost your grandmother. I am so sorry for you loss.
