WOYWW #350

Welcome back to What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday! If you don't know what this is, please click on the WOYWW icon in my sidebar!

It has been a rough week for our family. My brother-in-law passed away, and my niece was injured.  

Here is what my desk looked like this morning:

I did make a few cards this week, one a Valentines card for hubby. I wasn't sure he would be up to celebrating anything, but he's a trooper, and we went out for a lovely fancy Valentines dinner. He wasn't able to get out to get me anything, but when we got home I kept finding little valentines around the house (kids valentines left over from years gone by). Sweet.

 My first gatefold card. I use the "amour" stamp on every Valentines Day card I make for him.

I also made a Thank you card

which will go to the friend who is putting us up during the funeral, and a Birthday Card for my Mom, who turned 81 on the 12th.

Well, I hope that is the worst 2016 has for us, and everything from here on is smooth sailing. Thanks for peeking at my desk, and now I will go peek at yours!

Well I did not expect to read something like this on someone's blog. How terrible. That must have been such a shock to you all and to lose your brother in law in this way is unthinkable. I hope your niece recovers both physically and mentally - what an ordeal to go through.
Am sure the friend will love the card you have made and how nice that someone can put you up so you can see your sister and family and pay your respects.

Well that is NOT what any of us was expecting to read. That is truly shocking, what a tragedy.

VERY sorry to hear about this, Linda. Will keep you and yours in our prayers.

Thank you for your visit this week, I appreciate it!

Sorry it's taken so long for me to visit you.
I am so incredibly sorry to read what your family has been through. I hope me sending you and your family love and coping vibes can remind you that there is a lot of love out there in the world. I will keep you all in my thoughts.
