PP604 Here For You Now

Hello, peeps!  Happy Sunday and time for a new Paper Players challenge!  Anne Marie has a fun color challenge for us all:


Sadly, I needed a sympathy card for a sweet friend from church who just lost her second daughter in the last three years.  The black and white prints from the retired True Love DSP was perfect for a simple (that's my key word lately) sympathy card:

I used a Daffodil Delight marker to color in just three of the flowers for Anne Marie's "pop" of color, then added a diecut banner with a sentiment from Color & Contour, and another wee little Daffodil Delight banner to tuck underneath.  I added a yellow rhinestone for a pop of bling!

 
And I added the second portion of the sentiment, along with another sweet sentiment from Eden's Garden, on the inside:


My heart breaks for her and I hope this brings her comfort!  

Now, I hope you'll play along with us too...black, white and a pop of any color!  Check out what the DT did over at the Paper Players blog and get some inspiration!  

So here are the three amigos (John's nephew Phil, John, and John's brother-in-law Charlie) on their fishing trip on the Chesapeake yesterday....Wayne took the photo!  What a gorgeous day to be on the water!


And this is what's left of the striper....leftovers for tonight!  It was delicious!


Thanks for visiting today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

That trio of yellow is sure to have an impact on your friend's heart, LeAnne, as will your thoughtfulness. such a pretty card.
Fishing is my next favorite thing to do - not sure I could do that boat but I sure could put my knife and fork to good use on that plate of fish!

I like your card. Prayers for your friend...no one should lose a child and two in three years...well, my heart is breaking for her.

This is the perfect use of that pop of yellow and a wonderful card for your friend, LeAnne. Oh I remember that delicious striper! Out guys went on a fishing trip in the Outer Banks. We froze some to enjoy at home ~ YUM!

I'm sending prayers for your friend heavenward. I can't imagine her sadness. Your card is a delight! The yellow is just the right POP of color!

Oh, LeAnne...my heart goes out to your friend. Your beautiful card will bring her peace and comfort. The trio of yellow flowers with the banner is the perfect "pop" of color.

LeAnne, my heart aches for your friend. A parent should never lose a child, never mind 2 in 3 years. That's just so tough. I love the pop of yellow on just the little cluster of daisies. I am sure she will really appreciate receiving this

So sorry for your friend, that's heartbreaking. Love how you spotlighted the three flowers on your card and the way you did the banners for the sentiment.

Your card is so pretty, LeAnne. I am so sorry for your friend's loss. I can't imagine the heartache she is feeling. I'm sure your pretty card let her know she is loved.
