Oil of Joy

VLV Apr 2014 Wk1 photo VLVApr14Wk1picQA.jpg

Julee has put together this fabulous sketch for us to work with this week, and/or this wonderful colour combination.  You can use just one or the other or combine them on your project.

I was determined to combine them this time round as last month I totally forgot about the colour combination.

Our ex-neighbours, dear friends and adherent third set of grandparents to our kids are grieving the loss of his mother this past week, so I wanted to get a sympathy card out to them to let them know we are holding them in our prayers and there for them.  I used the Award Banner die and one of my all time favorite go to dies -- Flutterby.  The sentiment is Isaiah 61:3 from Scripture Medley 1 and I love using it to encourage people during this hard season of life.

Thanks for popping by and if you want to see which cards I chose to highlight for this week's VLV sketch and Colour Combination, head on over to the Viva La Verve blog and check it out.

Wishing you a fabulous day!

What a gorgeous background, Marisa! We sang the song Beauty for Ashes one Sunday and I thought that the words were so perfect for a sympathy card. I'm going to take a minute to listen to that song again. Thanks for the reminder and I'm sorry for your friends loss. It's so hard to lose a parent!

This is a lovely design Marisa! I love the pop of coral on the butterfly. Such an encouraging verse too!

Oh my - how did I nearly miss this post (so sorry for the loss!), and your beautiful card that I know will be a healing salve on this difficult occasion. Your combinations of colours, patterns and images are, again, ever so stunning! A lovely sympathy card that I know truly comes from your heart! So touching...
