Marcus John Russell

I’m very sad to report that I just received this email update from Marcus’ family: 

Marcus John Russell passed away on October 26th, 2008 around 5:00am in his home. He fought to the end. He will be deeply missed by friends and family.

There will be a viewing held on Wednesday, October 29 at Nelson Funeral Home (162 E. 400N. Logan, Utah) from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Services will be on October 30, at the LDS Providence South Stake Center, (360 E. 450 N. Millville, Utah.) at 12:00 pm. with a viewing prior to the service from 10:30am to 11:30am.

Thank you all so much for your continued prayers, support and love.

There is certainly no doubt in my mind that Marcus is finally at peace…I believe prayers are now needed for his family during this terribly difficult time.   Thank you.   ~  Mary

House Mouse Challenge No. 11 ~ Au Naturale :)

Happy House Mouse Monday!   Our challenge this week is Natural.  This one REALLY had me stumped ~ I just love colors and lots of embellishments on the cardz I make, so “natural” was a totally new concept.  Not too happy with this card, but, WOW, the other design team members’ submissions are awesome!!  You really need to stop over there and take a peek!  WOW.  🙂     

Here’s my try at it….used brown kraft paper, colored pencils, hemp cord and pressed flowers.  As far as the saying goes… I LOVE fruit and nuts!   and, it appears that our little mouse friend loves cherries, apparently too much!  🙂

Too much fruit
