Signing off.....

...for awhile. I was planning on taking most of the month of July off from blogging (except for the occasional post here and there) as we are heading to see my family in PA.

My mom called this morning to let me know that my grandmother passed away. It is definitely times like this that I HATE being so far from my siblings and family. We are heading to PA in a few days and, although I have created a few cards to share this week, I just don't feel like doing all the work of posting them. My heart is not in it.

Love you, Mamo!

I will be sure to share the other cards in another week or so---I just need a break.


Thanks so much for your understanding. I will be back.
