On a sad note....

We just heard that our daughter-in-law's father passed away this past weekend. Words can never express the pain one feels for a loved one's loss. I made this card for her and her mother (and, of course, our son and granddaughters) who is battling cancer at this time.

I purchased some Core'Dinations cardstock from our local scrapbooking store and it is the dark embossed and the brown that's stamped on. Pretty cool paper! I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and my Wizard to do the square embossing then I sanded it to bring the light brown through. The stamp is in the set called With Sympathy. I also used another image from the set for the inside. The brown base is from my stash that I've had forever. The little embossed tin flower I received from a friend.

Here's a closeup of the embossed tin. There was 4 in the package. It's rather copper colored, not this silver that is coming across in the photo. The card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" as I wanted something a bit larger than a standard A2 size. And, while you are reading this, I'd appreciate a prayer for Amy and her mom, Sue, and the rest of the family. Thanks.
