A Simple Sympathy Card

Went to a funeral this past weekend for my Grand Aunt who was 100 years old!  Amazing longevity.  I rushed to make this sympathy card on Friday night because I let buying a card slip by me during the week.  I guess I forgot to buy one because I stayed home sick for a couple of days.  It's been a long time since I've gotten sick - sore throat, migraine type headache, coughing and was starting to lose my voice!  I guess something was telling me to slow down and rest, so I did.  I actually slept most of the first day I was home and I even read a book!  I love to read but it has been YEARS since I was able to sit down and read a book.  It felt really good to lie down and get lost in a book.  I read a book called MENTOR - The Kid & The CEO.  It was a really good motivating book.
Anyway, here is the card I whipped up.  I'm surprised that it turned out pretty good.  Used a retired SU stamp set called Close as a Memory.  It is really a classic stamp set to make Sympathy cards.
I'm working on a couple of projects using some of the new products from the Stampin' Up! brand new catalog!  If you don't have one, and want one, send me an email.  You can also view the catalog online at or click on the link on the catalog on my sidebar.  You can also get a list of the supplies used on the samples in the catalog by clicking on the supplies also on my sidebar.
Thanks for stopping by to visit me today.  I am starting to get the hang of posting again.  Bear with me!
