Watching Over


I'm sharing one of the hardest kinds of cards today; Sympathy.  A very close friend lost her Brother-In-Law this past weekend in a tragic accident; leaving behind a wonderful wife and three little boys.  I didn't know him really well, but we had socialized together on many occasions.  His humor and witty nature was infectious - I was always guaranteed a good laugh when he was around!  This card is the one I made for his wife and sons.  I don't really know where the idea came from - I was looking through my stamp sets not really seeing anything that seemed appropriate.  Then the birds on the branches from the Serene Silhouettes set jumped out at me - four little birds, one for each family member left to cherish him sitting in the light of heaven.


Stamp sets:  Serene Silhouettes, Lovely as a Tree, Thoughts & Prayers
Cardstock: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Midnight Muse
Ink: So Saffron, Midnight Muse, Basic Black, Whisper White Craft
Accessories: Brayer, Sponges, Large Oval punch, Basic Pearls, White gel pen

This is the second card I made, for my friend and her husband.  If I were to title it on its own I'd call it A New Dawn, representing the beginning of a new day.  There will always a come a tomorrow, and even those who have left this world will still be there, just in a different form.


Stamp sets: Summer Silhouettes, Thoughts & Prayers
Cardstock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze (retired)
Ink: So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Crisp Cantaloupe, Cajun Craze, Baked Brown Sugar, Basic Black
Accessories: 1 3/4" Circle punch, sponges, White Gel pen, Argyle embossing folder, Baja Breeze ribbon (retired)

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend.  I'm working on a technique video I hope to share with you early next week, so stay tuned.

Until next time...
