This week's challenge at Our Creative Corner is a sketch:
But before I show you my card, if you'll bear with me, I want to share a little "God" moment about our recent trip to San Juan. My in-laws have a time share there, and instead of staying at the time share, they rent it out to someone else, and then stay at another condo. Our church sponsors missionaries who also live in San Juan, so we made arrangements for their family to come to the condo and we had a cookout. When they arrived and came to the apartment, they were full of chatter--it seems that when they first came to PR and were looking at housing to purchase, our apartment was the SAME one they rented for a month!!! Now mind you, my in-laws do not go to my church, they never met these people at all, so there was no connection!! What are the chances of THAT happening? There must be thousands of apartments in San Juan!!! Anyway, the wife had just lost her father the day before, so I made this card as a sympathy card for her. Another funny thing--she stamps, and her husband complained about the tub of stamps he lugged around from mission field to mission field, and yes, they were SU stamps!!!
I wanted a masculine feel to the card, and used subdued colors. Thanks for visiting today! Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the Color Throwdown Challenge!
