Watercolor Zig Clean Color Winter Thank You

Hello My friends:

Thank you, Gracias and Merci...
so much for the loving and caring words for the passing away of my dear companion, Sasha...

It is hard ... I admit... and at every moment I have her in my mind...
But I keep myself busy and you know what? making lists and checking all what I accomplished in one day...gives me a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction that helps me with the day to day...

So I strongly recommend you this practice...make a list of your "TO DO's", do it as much as you can...and focus at the end of the day on what you did...and start over the next day...

I am still in grief, no denial in this, and in pain but at least I force myself to focus on the things that need to be done...

A winter thank you card...
the background was done with watercolors, with my "Zig, Clean Color", watercolor brush pens from "Kuretake"...
I love these markers so easy to use! and the colors are so vibrant!

and I use twice the "Memory Box" die "snowflake ring"

Ok my friends hope all is fine with you
and I will see you  next time for another crafty project!

Christmas Circle Cards

Hello Dear friends:

This past weeks have being very hard on us...
We had to let go our beloved Sasha, our Husky of 11 years...
No words to describe this loss ...
Fortunately I had plenty of time to say good bye and spend all my time taking care of her on her last days...
some comfort among the the pain and loss that I feel...
Some of her last pics are on my Instagram 
She left us peacefully,
Thank GOD!

This post was intended to be posted earlier, but for obvious reasons I didn't.

I decided to resume writing today on the blog... in order to keep me going...

So even Christmas period (Jan 6th)  is almost over  you will still see in the few days ahead some Christmas cards that I made earlier and I did not post here....
Let's see what I had posted few weeks ago at the language blogs for Memory Box ...

These 2 cards have the same die the "The Merry Christmas Ring die"
I like the color combo on this one and the simplicity
