Heaven has a new angel

My dear niece, Amy, passed away yesterday at age 40, unexpectedly, leaving two little boys ages 9 and 7. She was in Seattle with her kids and sister visiting their Dad. I am so far away here in Virginia and it's such a helpless feeling; I'm glad I have my hobby to turn to and keep busy. So I made a card with a heavy heart and it's dedicated to our beloved Amy. I will also post a recent photo of her, taken on our fun 4th of July trip together to the beach. I will remember that happy time; she looked well and beautiful and happy. Here is my little card, made with Hambo's new Hedgehog digi; I will also post it at OWH Stars and Stamps where "thinking of you" is the challenge and "missing you" is all that I feel today.

And here is our sweet Amy with her boys,
