yet another card...

This card was hard for me to make, as it was a sympathy card for a friend of mine who's mom (another friend of mine) passed away. It's never fun to have to make those kind of cards. Wendy was an amazing woman and, even though I wasn't super close to her, she definately left a lasting impression on me, and I will miss her dearly!


I made this card with the quickutz butterfly. I used some stickles on the wings to bling 'em up a bit. pp used: MME So Sophie (I seem to be using that line all the time these days) I can't remember what brand the base pp is...I found it in my scrap stash. The ribbon is another in the webster's pages designer trim pack. I also used the QK scallop border die, dollorama bling and those cute flowers are from close to my heart, stamped with nothing other than distress inks! I didn't have any sympathy sentiments, so I found this quote online and cut it out with the chopsticks font by QK's. I think it took me like 2 hours just to do the inside! I also used the Tim Holtz flower die on the inside that I glued a little Bella Bling onto. Well, that's all the deets I can think of...hope you like it!
ps: I just came back from 100 mile this evening and we had to stop at a car accident on north lakeside (just outside of town). Someone I think had fallen asleep at the wheel and flew from the highway over the bottom sidestreet and into the ditch! Then her vehicle caught on fire! She was okay mostly (thank God) but it was pretty scary because it's sooooo dry around here and her vehicle was like exploding and the trees where on fire around it and everything! It was quite intense! I just thought I'd share that because it was crazy!!

anyway, I hope you're all enjoying your summer!! I'm going back out to our cabin tomorrow for the day!! Have a good night!!
Ciao!
