" Using Distress Inks For A Sympathy Card"

Thursday, January 26, 2017

Hello visitors, viewers, followers and friends.
It's cool....the time is moving fast.....the month is almost over when it just started....I'm tired of the snow (if you have some in your neighborhood)...the harsh words going on about people via the media...Aren't you tired of hearing the same thing over and over?  Is there any "happy" news or comments to report or say?

I'm happy but sharing in the sorrow with our community.  In our neighborhood and church family we have had a loss of one of our dedicated members.  Dedicated involvement in the community as well as active in the church.  It is a little somber for everyone who knew this sweet gentleman and his family.
I know we should or have been taught to look at death as a happy occasion.  Believers know that we are not here to stay on this side forever.  Our home is in heaven.  However, instead of rejoicing we do feel sorrowful at the loss of a loved one.

Today, I had to pull out a card from my file box and prepare it for the family who will have a "homegoing service" for their dad tomorrow.
You know, we make those sympathy cards and save them for occasions like this.

What I had used:

  • Distress inks...seedless preserves; peeled paint and ripe persimmon with water
  • VersaMark embossing ink with white embossing powder
  • stamp from Recollections Condolences and Altenew persian motif
  • faux Recollections gems
  • entry for wordartwednesday     Anything Goes - Challenge Weeks #266-267

None of us in the cardmaking family enjoy making sympathy cards....we do it to show our Love to the family and friends who are left behind.  At least this is my point of view.

Thanks for visiting.  Thanks for commenting and come back again!

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
