Loving Memories

In the many years that I have been paper crafting I have never needed a sympathy card, it seems unlikely that I would need 3 since November.  I have lost two of my neighbors, and dear friends of 19 years. Our quiet and friendly neighborhood will never be quite the same without them. Ed was the most extroidinary Holiday decorator!!! Tour buses were scheduled to come down our street to have the chance to view his incredible Christmas display.
As beautiful as the sentiments from thoughts and prayers stamp set are, I hope it will be another 10 years before I need to make another.This sentiment was made using My digital studio. I'm really loving this digital program from Stampin'Up! 

I have layered nesties labels on top of an embossed base, a sprinkling of leaves, and pretty flowers cut with the boho blossom punch. To make these flowers punch the largest flower from the boho punch, clip between each petal curl forward with your fingers and attach to card with a glue dot. Place a rhinestone in flower center, and wahlah!

I hope you have a great day, and I especially hope you do not need a sympathy card, but if you do ,try to think of all the loving memories and good times you shared, while you are creating. It will be a happier task, and your love and cheerful spirit will show in your work. And hey if there is a tear stain on your will be a happy tear :)   Thanks for stopping in, and as always ....
Happy creating!
