With Deepest Sympathy

VLVNov13Wk3picA photo VLVNov13Wk3picA.jpg

This week's sketch and inspiration picture are brought to us by Anya.  Just love this picture!  I was inspired by the flowers and all the green.  Orange got a bit left out so I can say I focused on the bottom left side of the picture wink, wink {grin}.

Unfortunately I was in need of a sympathy card.  A friend of mine lost her disabled son to pneumonia last week and it just breaks my heart to think about it.  

I used K & Company's Classic K McKenna paper and used Verve's fabulous Deepest Sympathy Plain Jane for the sentiment.

Want to win a $100 gift certificate to the Verve Stamps store?!  All you have to do is complete all the sketches in a given month and load them on the Verve Challenge Thread on Splitcoast Stampers and a random winner will received the gift certificate.   Easy peasy, and with a recent release and another one coming in the near future, it's the perfect way to get some spending money :)



Thanks for popping by today and have a fabulous day!

This is a beautiful sympathy card, Marisa. And, for such a sad occasion. Sorry about your friend's deep loss. I can't imagine.

I'm sorry to hear of your friend's loss; I can only imagine how heart-breaking this is for her. Please let her know that I'm thinking of her. Your card is beautiful, with colours and images that are the 'special touches' sympathy cards need to have. Your friend will appreciate your thoughtfulness, immensely.
