Hey There! I'm back today with a card I unfortunately 'had' to make. I needed a masculine sympathy card, if that makes any sense. I know it has a ribbon, but I couldn't resist. Anyway, it's for a family friend who lost his mom near the holidays. His mom was my mom's friend for a very long time (before we were thought of). Losing loved ones during the holidays is very difficult. I know this because right before I started blogging, my father passed away two days after Christmas. You just never know if someone will be here tomorrow, so remember to show you care.
This card was inspired by CPS Sketch 148. I cheated a bit and placed the center focal point off the left so it fit my card design. Hey...I couldn't be called a designer if I did not go off and make it my own, right?!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I also wanted to say thanks for all of the comments on yesterday's card. Whenever I think a card is not up to par, you all show me much love to change my mind! I appreciate that so much! Have a great Tuesday and do something for yourself!
