I used the Sketch over at Retro Sketches to make three Sympathy cards.  I think this is a Sketch I will go back to often.  Beautiful Sketch, easy to create, and so versatile!!
There was a tragic death this weekend of a young man who was best friend to Anthony, a Senior at our church.  So hard to find words to say...  Lots of hugs, prayers and acknowledgement of his hurting heart, was all I could do...  Such a reminder of the fact that life is fleeting, so important to be sharing our Faith...  I had met this young man a few times when he came to church with Anthony.  My heart goes out to his family and friends...
Also, a young Mom at our church, Tina, lost her Grandmother last week.  Another passing, of a woman who lived a long and blessed life...  still there are hurting hearts left behind...

For Anthony...

For Melinds, Anthony's Mom...
For Tina and her family...

The papers are all from my stash.  The burlap "ribbon" and Butterflies are Close to My Heart.  The organza ribbon from my stash, the the Scripture stamp God is our Refuge and Strength, an ever present HELP in trouble... is Verve.

  4. Sorry you have had to make sympathy cards lately, but they are all so pretty. Thanks for joining us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ this week.

  5. I will say a prayer for those families. So hard when we lose someone we love. It seems especially hard to lose them when they are so young. I love how you have the butterflies made out of sheetmusic. Thanks for sharing your cards with the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge.
