With Sympathy....

Its never easy saying good bye to those that you love - or those people that come into your life and just fill you with happiness... whethers its illness or accident, saying good bye is difficult. A family friend was killed on Thursday evening, and though we didn't see him all that often, the memories we have are unforgetable! 

I knew I needed to get those butterflies back out. I also thought I needed some help with colors. I used the sketch challenge from Stamp-A-Holics which was great and provided me with getting a card out fast and easy.

Using the Just Add Ink Inspiration photo- gave me great colors to work with as well... and boy I did drift off alittle daydreaming of being there on the balcony with some wine and looking out into the landscape! ... wow!

I am not sure if this will be the card the widow gets, however I know that its soft enough to say all the things that it needs to say.  Though, I was reminded that she loved PURPLE... so there still is time for a card remake!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hug the ones you love!

Have a great day!
