4 Years ago...

Today is the anniversary of my late sister's fight with lung cancer. Her fight wasn't long compared to some, but it was painful, especially at the end. And it was because of this, that I am nicotine-free today.

But it's not about me, it's about Leslie and how much she is missed. Not too long ago, I mentioned how we finally went through all her paper crafting supplies. And every day since then, I have used something of hers on my cards. Whether it is a snip of lace, a vintage button, or a piece of pattern paper, it is used. It was she that got me started in this very addicting hobby, and she still is with us every time we sisters get together and make cards and/or scrapbook pages.  Miss you, Lux!

I have been very busy in my little craft room making all sorts of holiday crafts. I was on vacation the past week and never left the house! A couple days, I never even got out of my jammies - lol! But today, after I come home from the cemetary, I plan to put up the Christmas tree, drape garland over the mantel, and twine it through the banisters.

 I made this card this morning - as usual, I was up before the birds again! The button and snippet of lace is from Leslie's stash.

The red ribbons and snowflakes are from my stash. I sprinkled them with a pinch of glitter (which you can't see in the picture). Pattern paper is from Home for the Holidays by Melissa Frances. Vintage image is from TJ Designs.

That's it for me for today. Enjoy your Sunday!


  1. A wonderful remembrance of our Sister. We will never let a day go by that we don't think of her.

  2. The cards are beautiful. Your cards are very inspiring, Les would be proud
    Of you. Miss her dearly!

    Thanks for more great ideas!

  3. I absolutely love these cards and they are very "Leslie!" I miss her too. She was always a lot of fun to be around and she inspired my creativity which hasn't been the same since she's been gone.

    <3 Your favorite niece, K.
