Sympathy Tulips

I always find it difficult to make a sympathy card.  It may be because the loss of a friend or loved one is difficult to process, or not knowing what to say to someone who has lost a loved one.

This past weekend I attended the funeral of a dear friend’s husband.  He had been a combat veteran and left behind a wife and kids.  The wife requested no flowers in lieu she requested donations be made to a Go Fund Me.  It is a very long and heart wrenching story and can only pray she and her children find peace and resolution to their struggles.

Since she requested no flowers I gave her flowers.  Well, my way of giving flowers.  Tulips because they are happy and hope they may bring a little smile to her and her children.

I made this card with Sue Wilson dies and the image cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I, absolutely, love the PixScan mat!  Boy, does it beat fussy cutting images.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner.

 

Hugs,

Kim

Happy Anniversary with a House Mouse Birdie Kiss!

 

Sunday was the 17th wedding anniversary for me and my husband.  We’ve had ups and downs, but we’ve remained together and gotten stronger.  And, this little House Mouse Birdie Kiss reminds me
of my husband who now remembers to bring me flowers.  It makes my heart melt.

I used the Stampendous House Mouse Birdie Kiss stamp for this card.  Isn’t just the cutest stamp.  I had colored it about a year and a half ago and set the image aside until I started making this card.  And, it is perfect!  The printed vellum in the background I picked up a few years ago on clearance and can’t remember the product name.  I used the Sue Wilson Scandinavian Collection – Background Die   and I also pulled out one of the Spellbinders dies.  I had a great deal of fun making this card for my husband and he really enjoyed receiving it.

Another House Mouse – Chamomile Nap

You will find I love House Mouse stamps.  When I say love-I mean I have a difficult time passing them up.  They are just so cute!

The one I have for you today is Chamomile Nap.  I thought it perfect for a friend’s birthday card.  A birthday should be a day of rest and napping.  Well, it should–but we know it rarely is.

This stamp is colored with Copic markers and I am very satisfied with the results.   I don’t remember the markers I used since this card was done months ago, but in the future I’ll try and make a note of the markers I use.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to scan and cut the stamp.  There would have been no way I could have hand cut this to look this nice.  The scan and cut feature on the Cameo is awesome!

The card itself is one I found on Sue Wilson’s blog and really loved the design and thought it perfect to go with the stamp.  However, for the life of me, I cannot find it on her blog to link it here.  I would love to be able to give credit where credit is due and link to the instructions, so if you know the page where the instructions—-please, please, please place the link in the comments so I can post it.

The dies used are Sue Wilson dies, Classic Adorned Rectangles and the Weaving dies.  The weaving die were really fun to play with.  Just cut out the dies and weave the smallest pieces together from each set.  It is a little tedious, but I liked the results.

Here is a break down of what I used.

I would love to hear your comments on what you think on this card!

Have a great day!  And, don’t forget to try and put a little crazy in it, too!  It keeps people on their toes!
