Our Stephen Ministry group signed sympathy cards for the family of our dear friend Karen at last night's meeting. This is what I made for the group.
The basic design didn't come easily, although it is extremely simple and easy to duplicate. Sometimes, the simplest designs take forever to "discover"--and then you slap your forehead and exclaim, "Why was that so hard!?!?"
The silver pen outline of the raised panel really makes these pretty.
This sentiment, from Papertrey's Tucked In: Sympathy set, goes perfectly with the exterior sentiment from Beautiful Butterflies, doesn't it? Love that.
I'm trying to stamp the backs of my cards now and will initial under this pretty stamp from Papertrey's Birds of a Feather.
I hope you are all enjoying preparations for the holidays. The shopping side of things has me more excited this year than in previous years. I've become a very bad shopper over the years (this Scrooge gave mostly gift cards last year), but by letting go of a lot of uptight tendencies and habits of thought, and focusing on looking for cool gifts for people I love, it's a lot more fun. Christmas cards are coming along as well.
To my Jewish readers, Happy Hanukkah!
Blessings of the season to all.
