yep, I have another post for you all today. Last week my husband came home, I believe it was Thursday night, and he told me to put a friend of his from work on our prayer list at church. I was ready to let our Pastor know on Friday morning, when I received an e-mail from my husband telling me to disregard to put his friend on the prayer list as he had died Thursday night at the age of only 52 years. I did not know him personally as my hubby works an hour away but when he got home that night, I asked him if he wanted me to make a Sympathy card for his family and he said "that would be nice". So this morning I got some of my stamps out and went for it. I just hope and pray that this humble little card will give his wife a little comfort. I started with a base of PTI Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate and some of my favorite K&Company Classic K McKenna. The DP was directly adhered unto the Dark Chocolate and sponged a little . For the focal image which is from the SU set Essence of Love I cut a circle with my Nesties Classic Circles dies and stamp the image in SU Close to Cocoa. As I also wanted to use the sentiment from this set instead of a "With Sympathy " I used the "Thinking of You" and stamped it unto a tag which I cut with the Nesties Ribbon Tag Trio in Vintage Cream on a Dark Chocolate tag. To adhere the tag I used some yummy velvet ribbon I found at Mike's a while ago added some Ginger colored Dew Drops in all four corners and some Recollections half pearls on the tag. I also added some butterflies which I cut out with my Martha Stewart 3 butterflies punch. A pretty simple card, but I hope it will bring some comfort.
This is the outside of the card and below is the inside of the card where I used the words "thoughts and prayers are with you from yet another SU set called "Always in my Thoughts".
