More Sympathy

Hello, everyone, I'm back again today.  As I was going through the sympathy cards I made for my parents' stash, I realized there were a couple I hadn't posted here on my blog.  This card features a freebie image from Beccy's Place.  The sentiment is a wood-mount stamp from The Old Island Stamp Company.  I added a torn page out of an old dictionary that I picked up at the thrift store.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

  1. 613 Avenue Create Anything Goes (I didn't use optional twist) 3E #2
  2. Beccy's Place Use Beccy's Place image UE
  3. Country View Monochromatic UE
  4. Crafty Cardmakers Black and White UE C15
  5. DRS Designs So Sorry UE
  6. Eureka Stamps Anything Goes 3E #1
  7. Izazovi i slatkisi Challenges and Candies Monochrome 3E #1
  8. Let's Craft and Create Make It Masculine (I think this is more of a masculine card because of the colours and the image) UE
  9. MFP Speedy TV Use Newspaper or Page from a Book 5E #1
  10. Milk Coffee Monochrome 3E #1
  11. Oldie but a Goodie Recycle (I recycled a torn page from an old dictionary from the thrift store.  My other old item is the wood-mount sentiment stamp - I've had this for over 8 years) 3E #2
  12. One Stitch at a Time White + one other colour (I went with black) 3E #1
  13. Paper Creator's Crafts Anything Goes 3E #3
  14. Through the Craftroom Door Always Anything Goes 2E #1
  15. Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes with Uplifting Sentiment 5E #2

Thank you for looking at my card - I look forward to reading your comments.  Wishing you a joyful day!

Oh Kitty, isn't it so sad that as our parents get older they experience the loss of so many who have meant so much to them during their lifetime. What support and love you give to your own parents by keeping them stocked with such beautiful and thoughtful cards as this. As the sad 'need for this card arises your parents will be supporting the bereaved with a card so full of empathy and Love.

Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
