Loved Janelle's sketch this week. The perfect layout for a sympathy card I needed to make for a dear friend who lost her grandmother this past week.
I decided to use purple on my card as purple is her favorite colour, and I'm trusting it will bring a smile to her face amidst her sorrow.
Verve's Deepest Sympathy Plain Jane is such a fabulous stamp! Love the size and the mix of fonts - Julee's forte :) It fit perfectly in the oval and I added a touch of lace and some pops of yellow as well as a bit of bling to finish things off.
If you want a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to the Verve Store, all you need to do is play along with all the sketches for this month on load them on to the Verve Forum over on Splitcoast Stampers. Here is the link to Verve's Splitcoast Forum which gives you all the sketches and challenge details.
I'm barley coming up for air after and insanely busy week - phew!! Weekend is going to be a crazy busy one again, and I for one am very much looking forward to next Friday as the kids will both be out of school and I don't need to set my alarm for 6 a.m!!
Back tomorrow with my Just Us Girls card. Vicki has a fabulous inspiration picture for us this week!
