Happy Tuesday All!
Today's post is written with a heavy heart! On Friday night my DH's uncle Wout passed away at the young age of 60. He had been having some problems with emphasema and his heart and was hooked up to 8 different machines the last few days. After discussing the procedure, the doctor's took him off the respirator on Friday morning and he passed away in the evening, leaving a wife, three children and 4 grandchildren. My in-laws were supposed to be going to Holland to celebrate my hubby's grandma's 90th birthday but instead they will be attending a funeral, now that the party has been canceled. It really is a sad case as we don't know what caused the emphasema as he didn't smoke and was an avid cyclist. The week before he was admitted to hospital he had still been cycling.

Our lives change so quickly that it sure does make you appreciate each day you have.
OK sadness over for this post, now onto happier things with Midnight Madness.....
Firstly Congratulations to our winners on their beautiful creations this week!
Our sponsors are Doodle Pantry LLC
Our monthly sponsor is Lindy's Stamp Gang
My card was made for my DH's grandma so it will be on it's way to Holland today, hand delivered by my MIL! I used an image from Priscilla and some lucious stains from Lindy's Stamp Gang on my creation and in real life it is so pretty!

Flower dressed in Creme Brulee Cream Moonglow's starburst stains from Lindy's Stamp Gang The new package I received was called "Little Lindy's Tiffany Chocolates" and let me tell you they are as decadent as they sound! I also trimmed the edges with Lindy's Autumn Maple Crimson stain that I've had for a while.
The background dp was also daubed with the delicious Creme Brulee which gives such a gorgeous creamy gold sheen to your paper. I colored Priscilla's butterfly with prismacolored pencils and added some cotton candy stickles. My embellies are all from Michael's, flowers from Prima.
I did end up changing some things on this card, I had originally wanted to add the sentiment "The Key to a Long Happy Life" but due to the circumstances I felt this was no longer appropriate. Grandma did not want to celebrate her 90th birthday after losing her son-in-law!
I hope your day brings you peace and happiness.
