A sympathy card.

To start, I want to say thank you to every one for all your lovely comments on my post yesterday.  I really do appreciate every single one. 

This afternoon, I went to a craft fair and amongst other things I got a couple of stamps to make a card for my friend's family.  The stamps are from Rubadubado

The image was stamped with Hero Arts Wet Cement ink and coloured with the same ink, some distress ink and a Jenni Bowlin ink.  

We are heading down to Te Puke in the morning for the funeral.  We'll have to leave here by 8.00am as the service is at 12.00.  We'll stay with hubby's sister in Papamoa so it won't be too long a day.  Had to cancel the cat's vaccine's for a couple of weeks as next weekend is Labour Weekend and we are heading up to the beach with our friends.  

Have a great weekend all

Dawn

A very nice card, Dawn! I have that word stamp from another company and use it with sea shells often for sympathy cards. I like the boat image, too.

Be safe in your travels,

These cards are the hardest to make, but there is some healing in the process. This couldn't be more special - the sentiment and image are both perfect! Safe travels to you.

That is such a beautiful card and the sentiment is perfect for a sympathy card. The boat grounded on the beach is a dynamic image. Perfect.

Hugs, Arlene
