Someone So Special


I have not been very inspired to craft these last few weeks, but today I had to finish this card.

I made this sympathy card for the family of a long ago coworker and friend. She actually trained me on the computer---imagine how long ago that was!  I still smile when I think of her trying to teach me which key to push-(sort of like the movie 50 first dates) I am sure she wanted to pull out  her lovely long blond hair, but she was always soft spoken and oh so patient with me. She would be proud and very relieved to know her efforts paid off!

I used a pretty card file from the Silhouette store and a wonderful Verve stamp set named Forever in Our Hearts(and currently on sale for $19.20)  Probably the best stamp set ever. You can see another Sympathy card Here that I made with the same set.  Purple is such a hard color to photograph, so please accept my apologies about that...






RIP D.J.
