Sympathy SSC244, CTD181


Squeezing in another post today, so I can make the Stamping 411 deadline!  Unfortunately, we needed a sympathy card this week, and as I was looking through my DP for something appropriate, I found some beautiful papers that matched the Color Throwdown colors for this week:


I let most of the work be done by the paper....I added a couple of sentiments, some nesties & pearls, and finished it with a seam binding bow:


I used the Stamping 411 sketch for this week:


and tucked in a little sentiment under the bow:


Now, off to the mail it goes!  Edited to add:  Paper is K&Co Cut & Paste Designer pad, Naturals Ivory card base, Blush Blossom, and Certainly Celery; sentiments are from SU's Thoughts & Prayers and Verve; seam binding is from SU.  

This morning I moved this little table & chairs to our living room so that Cassidy would have a place to sit, look out the window (one of her first words was "tree"), read and play.  This set belonged to my maternal grandmother; the bottoms of many of my cousins warmed it for probably 60 years or so!



Now, another generation is putting it to good use!  Have a blessed day, everyone!

  4. LeAnn - beautiful card and interpretation. Would you be willing to share the info on the paper and stamp? I read your blog daily for a source of inspiration in paper crafting, faith and family. All the things I value highly. BTW, everytime I put my email address in the identity box,it read "illegal characters." Otherwise, you'd have my info. debra

  7. Your card is PERFECTION! Beautiful details that make it special, yet the focus remains on the messages of comfort and hope.

    It's a joy to watch your lil granddaughter grow and develop under your watchful care (and camera)!
