On Monday, I got word from four different friends or family members that a loved one had passed away….FOUR! I was slightly overwhelmed by the news and yesterday was just a little out of sorts. I got to work making a couple of cards to send out as I knew I only had a few sympathy cards in my stash. I got a sneak peek at Lesley’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch #7, and as I was having a sleepless night, got up and did some stamping! Here’s the sketch:
And here’s my card:
This is for our youth pastor’s FIL who lost his battle with cancer. They live here in PA and his wife’s family live in GA, so it has been stressful to travel back & forth. The FIL was a pastor as well and a really fun guy—we met him at our youth pastor’s ordination—and he will be greatly missed. I liked the crown image from Established Elegance, and the Well Worn papers are very masculine; I did add some denim ribbon, just a tad, to add some interest.
I hope that Lesley deems this “clean” enough!! I will need to be making a few more sympathy cards, so perhaps this sketch will be put to use again!
- Stamps: Established Elegance, Thoughts & Prayers (retired set & I don’t remember the name)
- Paper: VV, Cajun Craze, Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake, Well Worn & First Edition DP
- Ink: Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake, River Rock
- Acc: Nesties, Denim Ribbon, Antique Brads, Button from my stash
My little reader….this particular book shows babies dressed in “work” clothes---aerobics teacher, artist, chef, and a plumber (complete with plunger and a butt crack view, which is more for the adults reading it than the kids, I think!)!! LOL! It goes right over her head, but she loves to look at those babies!!! Thanks for visiting today!
