Isn’t it hard to make a sympathy card? But how much more meaningful can it be to the recipient that you made one especially for them.
Someone Ann and my favorite huMAN have known for a long time has lost a son in a crop dusting accident. He would probably be in his late ’20’s.
We have lots of rice fields and orchards in this area. In fact, we live next door to TWO peach orchards.
And no, we don’t pick their peaches – even though they wouldn’t mind if we picked the ones that fell on the ground after the pickers come through.
So we’re hoping that this card will bring some comfort to the family and let them know that we’re thinking of them.
We made it with the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set that has been so popular during this Sale-a-Bration season. But it’s only available through tomorrow night!
It’s stamped in Soft Suede onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Then Ann colored the flower with a Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker to go with the Pool Party Shimmer ribbon we layered under the flower and greeting.
If you look REALLY CLOSE…
…you’ll see a little rhinestone on the flower. If you were quick on getting the Stampin’ Blends, I’d suggest coloring the rhinestone with either the light or dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.
It’s easy to see on the card, but it’s almost like playing Where’s Waldo on the picture.

Did you see where we used the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder on the background? I think we need to use that more.
I can hardly believe that Sale-a-Bration is already over! Three months just wizzes by!
They’ve added new free things to get TWICE! You can see them here.

Kind of like I work for Ann when I feel like it and when I don’t, I sit on her lap and make her fall asleep while she’s watching TV. (I’m one of her sleep triggers.)
