I'm baaack.. sorta.. with the Bombshells!

I had a couple minutes last night to make a lil sumpin with a Bombshell stamp.. I totally adore this set.. but I didn't have much time.. and my overmedicated arse wasn't too crafty.. so this is what I came up with..

I stamped my lil rose image from Bombshell's.. and colored it with my pencils.. then I chalked the edges of the paper.. added it to a beautiful page that was added to my lil chipboard piece..
I couldn't really think of what to add.. so I grabbed these shiny metallic leaves and tied them up with a bow.. black of course.. gothy? Idk.. but I tried :)

I hope I can get back into the swing of things soon.. my brain fog is totally getting to me..
If you didn't know.. my dad passed away last weekend and I have been really down and super busy.. I was the one taking care of him.. so.. it was really tough.
We got through the week and still trying to get all the arrangements of his bills and such taken care of.. my family is tough.. so we'll get through this :)

Thanks to everyone for understanding my absence.. and I hope to be back among the family that is my online friends soon!

I am so sorry about your Dad...I know that this has been so hard for you. You know where to find me if you ever need to talk.

I'm glad you made something for the hop! It was probably nice to concentrate on something creative instead of the sadness! You did a great job, especially since this is such a difficult time for you. Big hugs!
