Atlantic Hearts Sketch #13

I'm late with this week's sketch challenge.  My husband's younger brother passed away last week Tuesday quite suddenly.  He was an awesome husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather and to say that he will be missed would be putting it mildly.  The funeral service on Sunday was very emotional.  Stew was very fond of one of his granddaughters and she of him.  Taylor is 9 years old and as far as she was concerned, her grandfather was her best friend.  When she tried to speak about him on Sunday, she fell apart and her uncle (Stew's son) finished her dedication to him.  I don't think there was a dry eye in the chapel.  My husband and I are still trying to come to grips with his sudden passing.  This picture was taken Christmas Eve 2011 which was the last time all 4 of my husband's siblings were together.  From L - R - Bernice who is 76 years old.  She has dementia and is in the early stages of Alzheimer's Disease.  Stew who would be celebrating his 62nd birthday next month, Jan who will be 64 2 days after my 64th birthday next month and my husband Herb who will be 66 in December:

I managed to cut and emboss the card stock on Monday but as far as putting it all together; took a bit longer as I just was not motivated at all!  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

Everything I've used on this card is from my stash.  The butterflies were punched using a Creative Memories punch.  The embossed card stock is actually light blue in colour although it looks white in the photo.  The embossing folder is from Provocraft.

Thanks for stopping by!
