Sad and Sweet, C4C19 Challenge

It was a tough day here yesterday, (in the morning, anyway) We said goodbye to our youngest son and family. Jim is in the Air Force and they will be stationed in England for at least the next four years. I'm probably in big trouble from my daughter-in-law for posting this picture. They hadn't been getting much sleep and there were alot of tears, so this isn't the best picture I have of her. She is a beautiful girl, and what a handsome man that son of mine is, don't you think? Of course, those grandkids aren't lacking in the cute department either. I'm sure going to miss them all. Hoping to save for a trip over there!

Okay-on to the sweet.......I had made and posted a card for another granddaughters birthday a few weeks ago, but then I came across this dig stamp from Janie at GTC's Crafty Corner. Check out her blog, she has many digi stamps that she generously gives. They are of the cute and cuddly variety, I just love them!
Joelle just LOVES ponies and purple, and bling, so this card just has her name written all over it. I will be entering it in the Birthday Challenge over at the Crazy 4 Challenge blog.

Recipe: Cardstock-DCWV, Stampin' Up! Pattern Paper-DCWV, Image-GTC Crafty Corner, Koh-i-nor Pencils, OMS, Flower Punch-SU, Marvy, Glitter Paper-American Crafts,Rhinestone-Joann's, Glitter pen- (there is a bit of glitter on the tail and mane, don't know if you can see it in the pic)
I hope you enjoy this card, I sure had fun making it for Joelle. She will be 7 on Thursday.
Thanks for stopping in today! God Bless!

What a nice looking family they are! I hope that you will get the chance to go visit them soon. It is tough to be so far apart. The card is just darling! Very nice!

Oh Carol, I feel your pain! Our DS is Air Force, also, and is currently in Los Angeles. However, he's gone through two deployments, and has lived away from home since HS graduation in 1994. His last birthday with family was 1993. DD has lived all over the country, but spent a year and a half in Taipei, Taiwan. I only say all of this so that you'll know that I do understand what you are feeling. Big hugs, dear friend! You will stay at the top of my prayer list. Beautiful family, adorable card!
