Sadly, I found out yesterday that I needed a sympathy card; the husband of one of my college roommates passed away after a short battle with cancer. It really shook me up; we have been through divorces and children issues, but no deaths. She is seven hours away, so I can’t be with her but I wanted to make a comforting card for her:
Although I didn’t use any My Favorite Things stamps, I did use their layout for this week:
I used a plethora of different stamps with some pretty MME papers from the Lost & Found Market Street line. An Our Daily Bread Designs verse graced the main panel,
and I did some collage stamping on the back panel.
I also added pearls, crochet trim, velvet ribbon and shabby ribbon, and sponged and distressed some of the edges. I just love these greens together! Although it was for a sad occasion, it was nice to stamp something non-Christmas. As always, if you have questions, just email me!
Well, even though my card is non-Christmas, the festivities are in full swing at the Pugliese household, which includes making cookies, or at least licking the spoon:
My posts may be more sporadic here in the next couple weeks, but I promise to share a few more cookie-making adventures when I do!
