Fifth Avenue Floral

This set from Stampin'Up! is just beautiful! I have the decor elements for the walls too... I bought them for my Grandma's new house, but haven't decided where to put them yet.

It's really hard for me to make sympathy cards. I guess it's hard for everyone... I can imagine. I always feel so bad.... I know first hand that losing loved ones is one of the hardest things we have to deal with during our lives.

My Aunt lost her husband of 23 years. Although we didn't see them more than once or twice a year, I always enjoyed Brad. He was funny and sweet and was always
smiling. I know my Aunt is going to miss him terribly... and us too.

You are never going to believe this, but BOTH twins are home today sick! I'm seriously going to scream!

Okay.. I'm done screaming. Here's the recipe:

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Brighter Tomorrow
Paper: Soft Sky, Regal Rose, Soft Sky Designer Prints, Whisper White, Basic Grey.
Ink: Basic Grey, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers.
Other: Shimmerz (Burgundy), Paint Brush, 1 3/4 inch Circle Punch (SU!), Circle Nesties, Scallop Nesties, Scallop Edge Punch (SU!), Taffeta Ribbon (SU!), Scor-pal.

Thanks for stopping by! See ya tomorrow for the weekend sketch by Jenn! :)
