Sympathy Card for Amelia Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

My good friend Amelia lost her father-in-law this week.  He had a rapid decline over the last few weeks, but it is never expected, is it.  I wanted to make a special card for her, Tom and the girls.  I opted for this week's Mojo Monday sketch. 

I paired this spring's Creative Basics collection from CTMH  with some Juniper and Garden Green cardstock.  A few of the new Spring Flowers and a great brad are my accents. 

The sentiment, as well as the birds and leaves, are all from one of Verve's stamp sets.  Julee does such a wonderful job with her images, sentiments and fonts.  This set has several stamps that are appropriate for sympathy cards.  I consider it a must-have set for such occasions.  There are a couple of other images included as well.

Here's a closeup of the sentiment (click on the image for a larger view.

Enjoy what is left of the weekend.  Oh, why do we have to go back to work on Monday?  Oh, to be able to create all day, every day.....what a life that would be!

Oh, Deb! This card is so pretty - a perfect sympathy card. Such a lovely sentiment that I hadn't (but should have) seen before.

I'd love to play all day every day, too. I tell myself I'd get bored, but in reality, I don't think so. LOL.

Have a good week, sweet friend!
