It's been a long week (more on that later), but I did manage to get few cards made over the last few days. Today, of course is the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and it's got flags! Lovely, lovely flags! Jennifer Timko is our hostess and without further ado here's my card and the sketch.
For this card I inked up Gorgeous Grunge in the colors for the Sunday Stamps challenge. I actually made two versions of this card in completely different colors. The first one was Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo and although I loved the bright funky colors of that one, when I saw these colors at Sunday Stamps I thought I'd make another version. I don't know which one I like better!
Don't forget to check out the other Design Team cards at Freshly Made Sketches. I know you'll find lots of inspiration there!

Now, one final word before I go. Some of you may know that this past week has been hard on my family because my father suddenly became very ill. He passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon at home surrounded by my mother, one of my sisters, one of his beloved granddaughters and me. I'm so grateful that we were there to hold his hand as he made that final journey. And though it was difficult to say goodbye, I know that he's finally at peace. I thought I'd share a picture of my Dad and my Mom that was taken at their 50th wedding anniversary party in 2006.
Rest in peace Dad.
