Hi Stampers,

Happy Friday friends !

Today’s card is one I made for my friend Linda.

A Little back story Steve and Linda have been a part of our family

 and friends  for many years   and for those of you that have followed

my blog  over the years  you may have remembered

  our Jessie  use to  really like a boy named Ben …

Ben is Steve and Linda’s son. 

All  Steve and Linda’s kids  Ben, Whitney, Destiny 

and our Jessie and  so many other kids all  grew up together 

and all went to Youth group at church together .

Not  only church activities but we hung out together outside of church as well .

Dinners, Halloween parties, BBQ,  Swimming


You may even  remember that  I  make all of  Whitney’s graduation cards

  for her back in 2008.

She loved the Peek-a-Boo window card  and in her school colors blue and gold.

  I have  a video on this type of card HERE

Looks like I need to  update this card / video LOL!  

I letting you all know  this because we have always been close.

Linda was just  at the hospital to see me  when I was  going through that septic shock in Dec.

  and she mentioned Whitney was having issues with her hips and the doctors 

she thought finally figured out what was happening. 

Fast forward to April 21, 2020

  Whitney passed away from a seizure. Plus  her passing  with

the COVID-19 happening  this meant the funeral

 they couldn’t have more than 10 people  there.

Rich and I  still can’t believe  she is gone  and we  can NOT even imagine

  the pain Linda and Steve  are going through .

 Whitney just got married  on July 9, 2016  to Mike.

Whitney would have been 31 on May 1st  and with Mothers Day  just passing,

  I was having a  tough time making a card for Linda. 

Here is the card I made for  Linda  and so much of this card reminds

me of Whitney and Linda,  it was perfect .

I made it in Very Vanilla  and Whisper White

  but the Very Vanilla  was the one I sent to Linda.

The video on this card  is posted below

  as well as all the  supplies I used .

P.S A lot of the dies I’m using on today’s card are retiring this year .

Thank you for stopping by today .

Until later.. Happy Stampin!
