Give Unto Them

beautyforashes

Good morning, friends!  I haven’t been participating in the Embellish challenges much at all lately but I couldn’t help but be inspired by the colours this week as well as the chosen requirement of crochet trim.  With even further inspiration from Sarah Martina’s video this week, I made my own little crochet flower with some trim.  LOVE IT!!  The only sad thing about this card is that I made if for a dear colleague who lost her brother to a similar cancer that my brother in law died from.  Even though I do have some “thinking of you” and “sympathy” cards in my stash, I usually wind up making another one.  I like to choose specific sentiments for certain people and I actually think of them the whole time I’m creating.  My friend’s brother is having his service in the church I grew up in so I know she will appreciate this beautiful verse.  I must say Verve stamps are my go-to stamps for these kind of cards.  Julee sure knows how to pick the perfect words :)  Hmmm…two sad memories in a row…how ‘bout tomorrow I change that up!! lol….thanks for visiting and hug those loved ones!!

Great take on the colours from the insp. piece and well done on the flower. I'm sure your card will be greatly appreciated. Have a blessed Easter weekend :) I'm doing a happy dance as I just got home from p/u my Verve order - oh happy, happy, joy, joy! That US PO Box is worth it's weight in gold I tell you :)

We must be on the same wavelength today Maureen. So sorry for your friend's loss. I agree with you. I love the Verve stamps and so many of the sentiments I use with specific people in mind. Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend.
