Mine is going good; very busy as usual with a super busy weekend ahead.
The mother of one of the executive's I work for passed away last weekend; the service is tomorrow (Friday). Unfortunately we have a big event at work in which I'm handling the food, set up, coffee, etc. - breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack, so I won't be able to attend the service. Therefore, I wanted to make sure and send a sympathy card.
I'm telling you, EVERY card is easy when you use MME paper - I am so addicted to almost every single 6x6 paper pad they offer - LOL! But obviously that works well for me (think of me as the paper matching challenged chick - HA).
So, this is the card I came up with, once again I used Verve's Forever in Our Hearts stamp set - LOVE. THIS. SET. FOR. EVERY. SYMPATHY. CARD I've ever made - amazing! BTW, Verve is having a huge sale right now AND donating a portion of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Research - it's a great deal, check it out (no affiliation, just love their products)!
The layout is Jen's Sketch For You To Try for October - fabby sketch; loved using it here! I embossed the yellow paper and then rubbed on some VersaMagic Jumbo Java. I also sponged all the DP with Jumbo Java as well as distressing the 2 base layers. The chocolate baker's twine was originally chocolate and white but I changed it to chocolate and an aqua blue, using Copics, to match the paper - LOVE IT!
The main panel was stamped with the large and small foilage in a really soft VersaMagic blue - in fact, it's next to impossible to see in the pictures - but it's there! I also stamped one of the birds in the upper right-hand corner, stamped the main sentiment and curled the corner. I decorated the inside a bit too.
Losing loved ones is so difficult; I hope this cards brightens he and his family's day and let's them know I'm thinking of them.
Have a great weekend friends!
