Sending Love & Sympathy--#SSINKCC17

January 6, 2015

Sorry, I have not posted for a few days!! I had to take a few days off to rest.  I fell off a ladder last Saturday while taking down my Christmas tree and got a concussion.  It was not a pretty site---I am still a little queasy and trying to get myself back to what passes for normal!  I am so mad at myself for doing that!  It certainly messed up my plans for completing my resolutions!  Oh well, I am very thankful I did not break any bones.   

While I was surfing online, I found a new challenge to enter.  It is Stylin' Stampin' Inkspration.  I love this color combination, so I thought I would play along.  Check out the website and see all the talented Design Team's fabulous creations!  




Unfortunately, I needed a special sympathy card for a friend that lost her husband unexpectedly on Christmas Eve.  I have been very sad and it was difficult to make this card.  




 I love the way the sponged paper turned out.  I used a sponge and all three challenge colors to create the background paper.



I think the inside sentiment is perfect to express my feelings!  

Please leave a comment if you have time.  I love to hear from you!

If you have any questions on my card, you can contact me at: Claire.

Stay warm, wherever you are!  It is cold!

Happy Stampin'!
Claire
