And you wish there was no occasion for sending. Yep, I'm talkinn' sympathy cards. To me, though, they are the MOST important card to send and I always feel bad if I don't send them.
Two dear friends lost loved ones in the past month, though, so Monday night I sat down to create a couple of sympathy cards. I like a quiet, but not too somber, color scheme as well as a somewhat simple layout for such cards. I chose two of our sympathy sets to make them and the same color scheme for both. Here is the first:
Ingredients: Stamps - Thoughts & Prayers; Paper - Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla; Ink - Rich Razzleberry, Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand; Other - Vintage Brads, Jumbo Antique Brass eyelets, Always Artichoke 1/4" grosgrain, sponge wedges
Isn't this GOJUS? (YILM!) I love this color combination and if I had to pick one color to add to the standard 48 color palette out of all the In Colors, Rich Razzelberry would be the one. It can look riotously bright or quiet and rich depending on which colors you pair it with.
For the second card, I chose the set Refuge & Strength:
Ingredients: Stamps - Refuge & Strength; Paper - Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla; Ink - Rich Razzleberry, Always Artichoke; Other - Vintage Brads, Always Artichoke 1/4" grosgrain, sponge wedges, dimensionals
This is GOJUS too! (YILM!) Though it seems inappropriate to say so under the circumstances, doesn't it?
Today has been a nice lazy day. Eight inches of snow on the ground, so all schools cancelled. No running back and forth from home to bus stop and home to school and reversing all 6 hours later. Instead, I got to sleep in 3 hours later than usual and just putter around. Y'all have a fab day! Ta!
