Yesterday morning I opened the newspaper and read the obituaries like I always do. I am always curious about who died and I really can't explain why. Sometimes I don't know anyone in the obits. That's a good thing, right? Then there are times when a young person dies and I wonder how he/she died. Then there are the babies... Even if I don't know anyone, I always say a quick prayer for those who have passed away along with one for those who are left behind.
Yesterday was a little different. The mother of one of Randy's co-workers passed away. This lady was also an acquaintance of my mother. Of course, I didn't have any sympathy cards ready to go. So I made one:
Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers
Paper: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Springtime Vintage dsp
Ink: Always Artichoke, Marina Mist
Accessories: Victoria crochet trim, Marina Mist 1/4 inch grosgrain, basic pearls, scallop oval punch, oval punch, dimensionals
I have been invited to participate in two different all-occasion card swaps this month. My plan is to make similar sympathy cards. I'm sure my swappers would appreciate receiving them. After all, I don't want them to say, "Where's that card when I need it?"
