I'm sorry!

Hello! Happy Monday! I wanted to share a sympathy card that I made recently for my very sweet neighbor. Her mom passed away and I wanted her to know we were thinking about her. They have been our neighbors for the past 15 years and I think so very highly of them both. They are super nice folks and I am just feeling so sad for her. These are my very least favorite cards to make because they mean that someone somewhere is feeling bad. I tried to add some 'happy' to this card to make her smile. My heart is just breaking for her. Here is my card:



I used a level 3 Hostess set from the Stampin' Up catalog and the scallop border punch for the trim. I added some shimmer to each of the leaves. I sponged around the main image with River Rock to make the card look soft. I used the color combo River Rock (retired), Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip. I addded some butterflies from the SU! Beautiful Wings Sizzlet.

Sorry to cut it short today but we have a very full afternoon! We are off to gymnastics and soccer practice! Hope that you have a nice day! Be back soonest!
