FMS327 Sympathy

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  It has been a lazy day today, lots of snow falling outside, so I spent a little time in the craftroom.  Sadly, we found out last evening that a friend of the family, who also happens to be a co-worker of John's at the propane company, passed away very suddenly while on the job.  His daughter babysat Dana and his son was a friend of Dana's in youth group.  A young 67, he will be missed greatly; he always had a funny story or an anecdote to share, but we know he is in the company of our Lord, probably talking his ear off too!  I used Jen's lovely FMS sketch for a card for his wife:

Deb and I have had several conversations about knitting and crocheting, of which she does both!  I love this little basket of yarn from Lockhart; I had this even before I starting knitting myself!  I stamped it on Thick Very Vanilla cardstock in Stazon ink and watercolored it:

And I just received this cross-stitch DSP yesterday from my sweet, generous friend Teri.  Honestly, she showers me with all kinds of goodies!  Paired with the Cable Knit embossing folder and some stitched dies, I thought it looked very "homey":

I added a strip of the same paper along the inside and added a Bible verse from Our Daily Bread Designs:

Thanks for popping in today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for another Inspired By challenge!  

No Cassidy pix but a lot of snow!  John had just cleaned up the downed branches and hopefully the weight of this snow won't cause more damage!

The clothesline was so heavy with snow, but the birds are light enough to not knock it off!  They fight each other at the suet!  Thankfully, the storm is finally fabating and the wind is blowing the snow off the branches.

 Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Oh my goodness - all that snow!!! We still have sun and are expecting a heatwave this weekend here in Melbourne....
Your card is just gorgeous LeAnne - i adore the theme you've carried over from your image to your DSP to your textured background!
