For My Friend Cody


Good Morning & Happy Thursday Friends!

My post for today is on a sad note.  I've been pondering what *theme* I should use for this month's swap creations & I guess my Guardian Angel was correct telling me to make Sympathy cards because my dear friend Cody just recently lost him mom to cancer.   I know there aren't any real words of comfort for this type of situation---I've been through it enough to know---but I also completely understand that knowing people care can REALLY help you through times like this.  Cody has been a God send for me & I just want to show him a LOT of love during this difficult time so I would really appreciate it if my blog readers & friends would send a card to brighten his day a bit:

Cody Stocking & Family
1317 N. 19th St.
Duncan, OK  73533

Thanks so much for helping me on my lil' mission & I'm sure he'll appreciate it very much!  Before I go, I just want to say that my card was made using this week's Mojo sketch.  Thank you very much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
