Sneak Peak at Sale-a-Bration Lotus Blossom

Sadly, it's time for more sympathy cards.  A very dear friend of my family passed away on Saturday.  She and my Mother were like sisters and her children are like my brother and sister.  I know how difficult this is for them having been through it myself already. 

She was a wonderful Godly woman who loved her children more than anything in the world and brought them up with a wonderful Christian life.  Her husband was a missionary but he passed away when we were all very young and raised her children in a loving Christian home.

Thankfully I was able to see her before she passed and I'm so very grateful I did.  I was able to spend some quiet time with her and praying for her as she slept.  Heaven truly did gain an angel.

On to the cards.  This first card was made using the Lotus Blossom Stamp Set from the 2015 Sale-a-bration catalog.  You're going to LOVE it!  So simple and beautiful at the same time.

The second card is from one of my favorite go-to sets from the Annual Catalog.  It is Love and Sympathy (w-128652  / c-122797).  I love inking the stamps with our Stampin' Write Markers and then stamping them on Whisper White.  It makes it look like a watercolor, don't you think?
Here's a closer look at the flower and stems.  Aren't they beautiful?  Just color the stamp and press it down.  So pretty!

Thank you for looking in today.  I appreciate it when you come in and look around and I really love it when you leave comments.  Leave a little love today!
