With Sympathy

It's a beautiful morning in San Diego! My husband went to visit one of my daughters at her college for Father Daughter Weekend, so I have a quiet weekend, with lots of time to stamp, and maybe even do a little scrapbooking.

Sadly, my first card is a sympathy card. I am really happy with the card, but sympathy cards are always a little hard to make. One of my very best friends passed away this past week. This is going in the mail to her.

I used Beate's weekend sketch challenge. Each week someone on her team designs the sketch. Today’s sketch is from Lori. On a side note, if you have a chance go to Beate's site and take a look. Her cards this weekend are really special! The angel on my card if from American Art Stamp and is called Angel with Flowers. The paper is from Websters Pages, such beautiful papers! I sponged Tim Holtz Distressing Ink on the edges of the papers.

Hope you enjoy the weekend!
