I mentioned yesterday that I needed to make several sympathy cards this week and this is another of those. This is the one I am sending to the husband of the deceased and it is made almost entirely of scraps that were laying on the desktop from other cards & projects.
I used scraps of DP from K&Company as well as pieces of cardstock in Sage Shadow, Ruby Red and Very Vanilla from Stampin'Up! The rectangular pieces were pierced around the top,bottom and left edges and all the scraps were sponged using Chocolate Chip ink and the sentiment was stamped in the same color. This is the first time I've used brads following a circular pattern and I definitely like the effect. I really wanted to dress this up a little more but then decided that it was just right for a man. No frills - no ribbons.
I'm on my way to the kitchen here at work. My freezing fingers and shivering body are calling out for something besides sweet tea. Hmmmm - maybe HOT CHOCOLATE. Perfect for this cold, winter's day.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and enjoy the rest of your day.
