I need a Sympathy card today, a couple in our Small Group lost his mother Sunday morning. The family could use your prayers.

I always struggle with Sympathy cards- I think even more then I do with Masculine cards. :-)

I try to not to use gloomy colors, nor colors that are to cheery or festive. I am pleased with this one- not too gloomy and not too cheery.
I used the Hemingway Soar With it Collection and Cardstock. The Sentiment is from the With Sympathy set, the inside the card says, "When you can't see His Hand, trust His heart." I love that saying, it is so true for me. Decorative Corners was stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. The top layer of designer paper was tied with ribbon from the Reese ribbon collection. The rain drops are from my stash.
Gotta run, I need to mail this one today. See ya tomorrow!!
Oh one more thing before I run, I won a fantastic give away yesterday. I met Tania at a crop at my church in October. She is on the design team for several companies and over at Scrapsupply. She is soooo incredibly talented, you know what I am talking about- you want to stand beside her and hope some rubs off on you!!! She is giving away some of her extras from various companies. Be sure and check her blog, oh and she is a wonderful writer too.
Until later~
