Sympathy Not Easy

Hello Everyone, the card I am bringing you today is a type of card that I do not like making but then again who does? This is a type of card that we don’t like making but unfortunately this event does happen in our lives or that of our friends.

When I was thinking about making this card I wanted to make something that had some happy colours. The reason behind this is that so many of the funerals that I have attended have been a celebration of the persons life. And many of these people lived a colourful and full life – like my beautiful Mum who passed away earlier this year.

Anywho onto the card creation:
Sympathy Swirls.jpgI am really happy with how it turned out. It’s colourful but also simple. For this card I used my Distress Inks in Fired Brick, Wild Honey and Worn Lipstick to colour over the Tim Holtz Scribbles Stencil. The With Sympathy sentiment comes from a collection by the Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine from the UK.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. And now I would like to leave you with a thought before you leave:

Thanks Mum and Dad, I miss you both quite often.
