Praying for you...

Good Sunday afternoon to you all!
I'm so excited as I'm going to a Chicago Blackhawk's game tonight! The hours are dragging by so to help pass the time, I made a couple of sympathy cards.
We all hate to make them but unfortunately we have to. Recently I had a friends father pass away. I decided to make a few sympathy cards now rather than later.

 I embossed a piece of white cardstock and popped it up with dimensionals onto a white card base. I stamped my image and sentiment with gray ink and adhered it to gray cardstock - all by Stampin Up. I used deminsionals again to adhere it to the embossed piece.
 I stamped my butterfly with gray ink and punch it out. Added pearls and glued it onto the front.

 Using the same stamp set by Stampin Up, I used colored markers to color the tree using brown and teal markers. I stamped it on a piece of white cardstock along with the sentiment. I sponged the edges with Tim Holz Vintage photo distress ink. I adhered it to a piece of taupe colored cardstock and popped it up on an embossed Teal card base.

 On this card, I stamped the background with 3 different shades of blue using Gorgeous Grunge stamp set by Stampin Up. Using brown ink, I stamped the tree and sentiment and adhered it to navy cardstock. Tied a blue and white polka dotted piece of ribbon around it and tied a bow and adhered it all to a white card base. They're all clean and simple and quickly put together.

I am closing with yet another sweet picture of baby Bradley -

Have a wonderful week ahead~
