In Difficult Times

This past week has been busy in many ways. I did two workshops this past Saturday for the Girl Scouts: one on Kitchen Chemistry and one on Stamping. I loved doing both but it takes me weeks to prepare. I'll try to remember to share the projects that we did at the stamp workshop tomorrow. Tonight I needed to make sympathy cards. Of all the cards I make, these are the most important and my least favorite. Within the last two weeks, one of my best friends lost her mother and another friend lost her 24 year old daughter in a gun accident. Such a tragic lose. I needed to send both of them something, so I came up with this card.

I love Basic Grey paper. These two different papers are from the Lemonade and Indian Summer sets of paper. And the image and sentiment is from Gina K's set called Comfort & Peace. I love the sentiments in this set. I cut the heart shapes with my Heart Nestabilities. They are die cut and embossed. I did this card from the sketch challenge at Clearly iStamp. I love this sketch and will definitely use it again. Hopefully for a happy occasion. You have until Thursday to participate so check it out!

This is a short post tonight. I hope to be back tomorrow evening with more. Please take care and don't miss an opportunity to tell someone you love them. I love and so appreciate all of you. Thanks for stopping by today!

Warm hugs,

Hi Donna,
I know what you mean about making this type of card, but you did a lovely job with it. I love the idea of a heart in leiu of always using calla lily.
One of my close girlfriends just lost a dear family friend, she was 93 and a lovely lady.
May I use your sketch idea to send one out?
hugs, Valerie
ps I miss you, my dear friend, say hi to your DH
pss I'm back to blogging!
