Sympathy Card

Happy New Year!!!  I'm not entirely sure where the second half of 2015 went but I neglected my poor blog and my bloggy friends horribly. My mojo decided to go on vacation for most of the summer and when if finally came back, I fell into a crafting black hole trying to get everything done for the fall holidays (fall cards, Halloween cards and Thanksgiving cards) and Christmas (50+ cards, 24 cards for gift sets, a calendar and 30 mixed media canvases). I promise to post the mixed media canvases I made as Christmas presents over the next few weeks. But for today's post, I'm posting the first card I made in 2016. Sadly it is a sympathy card. My great uncle passed away shortly before the new year and I sent a card to his daughter. I was close to her kids when I was a kid and had many a sleep-over at her house. I kept the card fairly simple. 
The image is by Power Poppy and the sentiment is by Rubber Soul. I stamped it with Hero Arts shadow ink in soft granite. I colored the flowers with my new set of koi watercolors. I really like them.

Thanks for stopping by and please come again.


  1. You sound like you kept very busy Sarah! Lots of things you made, I'm in awe. I'm sorry for your loss, it is never easy to lose someone. I do think your sympathy card is beautiful. I pray you don't need to make any more sympathy cards for this year. Hugs, Brenda

  2. Very pretty! I like that image and the simple design!
