Thoughts of You

{judy} Stamping is such therapy for all sorts of ills. It doesn't "fix" things, but it certainly allows whatever I am feeling to take its course and allows a calmness to return. Yesterday a dear friend passed away and making this sympathy card for his wife helped me with all the emotions I was feeling. Does creating something do that for you? It's a blessing and a help, I think!

This was a simple card to make. I used the Reverse Masking Technique by cutting a circle frame and then sponging on the inside with Distress Ink. I kept the frame intact and stamped my group of flowers from Long Stemmed Silhouettes, then removed the frame and stamped the sentiment so it would be part way out of the sponged circle. I added some pearl bling and a little butterfly brad for embellishments.

I hope that whatever you create today brings you joy -- and peace!

Oh, Judy, I do agree with you about how therapeutic stamping is. It really does relax me (especially when I color) and help me to feel calmer and have a greater peace. I'm so sorry about your dear friend who passed away. I love this elegant CAS card and know that his wife will love it. I love the sponging and how beautiful the silhouette flowers are. Beautifully done! Hugs!
