In Sympathy

Happy Sunday again! LOL! So I'm not sure if I screwed up setting the post or if blogger added it a day early but my last post for Doodle Pantry and OWH was supposed to have gone live at 6am this morning and apparently it went Saturday morning. What a pain when you are out of Internet. I scheduled it Friday evening before I left. Oh well. Guess it won't hurt too much.
I really dislike making sympathy cards and I guess I should make them ahead because I always have a tough time getting it together in short order. I actually like this one that will be sent to a friend whose husband passed this week.

I used Cheery Lynn butterfly dies to cut out the butterfly shapes from the white cardstock. I stamped the leaves from a Simon Says stamp kit and added the flowers that I got from Michael's $1 bins. I used a Bic marker to draw the border around the butterflies and the frame around the card stock. and added the 3 little dots (a stamp from the Simon Says kit). The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations Sympathy Sentiments. It is heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The background layer is a purple swirl paper from Create with TLC; very pretty in real life.  I am happy with this one!

I am entering these challenges:
  • Joan's Garden challenge: die cut image using the negative (butterflies), colors of purple and white, textured layer (flowers), leaves, and you must use something purchased from Joan's Garden (Cheery Lynn dies, Heartfelt Creations Sympathy sentiments and Score Tape).
  • Simon Says challenge: anything goes
Hope your weekend has been awesome and you have a wonderful start to your week. I have a 4 day week this week. Tom and I will be spending Friday out at Baby Creek. Our new driveway will finally be finished on Friday when they lay 6 trucks of new gravel. We are excited to have that much finished. Have an awesome week!
