Perhaps...[You'll Like This]

Happy Monday Everyone:

I hope all is well in your world. I'm back after a brief road trip with my mom to Teachey, North Carolina. I'll have to tell you all about Teachey in a future post. It deserves a posting all of it's own. However, I would like to share a card I made for a neighbor. She recently had a friend to pass away and she wanted to send two of the same cards to her adult sons. As you know sympathy cards are probably [card makers]our least favorite cards that we actually make. On top of that I rarely use the term 'With Sympathy.' Instead, I titled the card 'Perhaps...' and used the Native American verse, 'Perhaps they're not just stars in the sky, but holes where our love ones shine down on to let us know they're alright.' There are a couple different version of this. I just love it. It has such a comforting message.

Well, anyway take a peak...

Lorie, this is a beautiful design, and so perfect for this most difficult of themes. I love your background, and the stars in the inked sky is such a wonderful element to this beautiful card.
Thanks for your visits to my blog, and your knit words, you always make me smile :-)

You're right-as much as I love making cards, I haven't done that many sympathy cards. However, this card is beautiful and I may have to use that sentiment!
