Day 17 - ODOP Christmas - Deck The Halls

Hello friends,

Actually, I'm still mourning. Yesterday evening, the person who was close to our family passed away. So sudden. She was the massageur. But above all, she helped my family for 9 years. When I had no servant, she came and cooked, cleaned, washed the clothes, ironed, even bathed my baby. She did so many things to help me. I also supported her family in many ways. I am so sad she passed away. This morning, I went to her house. Unfortunately, I couldn't see her, as her corpse was brought to a small mosque. Not long after that, they arrived in front of the house, then went to the funeral. I attended it 'till it was over, then showered the grave with flowers. Here is the picture of me and my friend.

I live in a village, not in a fancy housing complex. As you can see, the background of the picture is banana trees. :D Yeah, it is always like that. Look at the veil I am wearing. That's the only black veil I have. I always use it to the funeral.  Well, she'll rest in peace.... May God bless the family.

And I just managed to make this card. The theme is White Christmas. What's that? Is everything in white? Don't know. Never experienced it. Hehehe.. I presumed White Christmas is when everything is covered with snow. So here it is, a simple scene. I used 3 die cuts, from Memory Box and Magnolia. The wall embossing folder was from Sizzix. And the sentiment was from Papertrey Ink. The curtains were hand-cut and pleated. The inside was also white. Just consider that White Christmas is white outside and inside the house.

What do you think of White Christmas? I remember the song, sung by my favorite actor, Robert Downey Jr. Here is the link to it. You'll love his voice.. I adore him sooo much.. The song accompanied me while making this card. And it gave me a better feeling. Thanks, Robert..

I'm going to prepare myself for the bazaar tomorrow. It's a Japanese Christmas.

Hope everything is sold out.. See you...
