For today I am playing along with Sunday Stamps. As you will see this card is all about celebrating a life that was lived with love, devotion, and kindness. Here is my card for today, enjoy!
|This is an unusual color palette for a sympathy card.|
I thought however the sentiment needed bright colors that celebrate a life well lived.
|These bright and cheery colors reflect the attitude of the recipient.|
|Botanical Blooms seemed to be a perfect for this color palette.|
Sunday Stamps: SSC131- It's Color Time
My cousin called the other day to tell me the news that I have been dreading for so long. Her dog, Summer, passed away at the age of fourteen. She was a loving, patient, and kind animal who loved being close to you. So much so that when making dinner she insisted laying down between the cabinets and her people; no exception! Our family dogsat for Summer a few years back when she did something very unexpected. Summer would always bark only when my cousin sneezed, and again, this was no exception! I happen to allergic to dogs, so naturally I sneezed when she was at our house. Well she barked at me! Unheard of since she only barked for my cousin. I knew right then we had a bonding moment. From that day forward every time I or my cousin sneezed she would bark. It is true a memory becomes a treasure. This memory has become my treasure. Thank you Summer. We will miss you.
Well I am ready to go bed so I want to say goodnight and thank you so much for joining me. I really appreciate your visit and hope that you will drop by again! Until then however, take care and happy crafting!!
All the best,
