With Sympathy

Just last week, the husband of an acquaintance passed away. In some ways, I know it was a blessing because he was suffering so much, BUT, to loose someone so close as we enter the holidays has to be the absolute worst time!

So, I needed to create a card....and I have to say, that these cards are definitely the most difficult to create. Of course, they should bring a small measure of comfort, but (IMHO) should not be full of bling or over the top. Well, this began as a much simpler card, but somehow evolved (don't they usually?!!) into what you see here. Still, I believe it's subdued enough for the theme.....and once her grief begins to subside just a bit, hopefully, she will appreciate the care and time it took to create. Not to mention, the beauty.....I have to say, I'm in LOVE with this color combo!!

I'm so excited because I finally used my new Bow Easy (a tool to make bows....not from SU!) to create that cute little took me quite a few tries to get the bow right....the mechanics kind of confused me and it's supposed to be so simple!! Guess I'm not very "mechanical!"
