Alicia Bel - Hello Friend

Happy Friday!  And it's a LONG weekend... yay!  So it's also the 5-year anniversary of the motorcycle accident that Jeremy's dad got into and lost his wife.  It's definitely a tough anniversary.  Jeremy's birthday falls on Memorial Day weekend, so we have had a party that weekend ever since the kids were babies.  It happened to be the day of our party when the accident happened  - we were at the liquor store getting beer when we got the phone call, and our lives changed.  We stopped having our parties after that - but we decided that it's time to party again.  So I'm really looking forward to this weekend, to remembering those we've lost and to enjoy spending time with the loved ones I'm still lucky enough to have with me.

One card to share today, I love these gothic images from Alicia Bel:

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Alicia Bel: Anything Goes or Add Some Flowers
Creative Knockouts: Sentimentally Yours
Naughty or Nice: Friends
Corrosive Challenge: Every Little Thing She Does is Magic
Crafty Sentiments: Anything Goes

I colored Primavera Terrorifica with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.  Papers are from Authentique - finished it off with some black pearl stickers, a little hot pink clay skull, and a sentiment from SRM Stickers.  Peace.
