So sorry for your loss

Yesterday at my PTA meeting, I found out that one of the board members had lost her mother this week. I have helped her with the book fair every year, so I wanted to send her a sympathy card.
I have decided that I have become addicted to sketches; partly because it gives me a challenge and a new way of looking at things, but also because it takes out all of the guess work and gets me right to the fun part! I decided to check out this week's Mojo Moday sketch and really liked it. She gave you two options; square or round. As you can see, my card is neither. This did pose a problem as I got down to placing everything. I had a hard time getting it balanced.





I chose to use some older SU! papers and stamp set. I didn't want to use my traditional sympathy sets. I wanted something nice, not too bright, but not too drab, either. I thought these papers were a nice balance. It is gray and rainy here today, so my photo is ending up looking a little gray as well. The card is much more cheerful in real life.
Rowan has just woken up from his nap, so my creative time has come to an end. I haven't even showered yet, so I better get going! I have an end of season basketball coach gift to put together for Saturday as well as this month's new SFYTT. I also have some fun news to share! Thanks for fluttering by!

Good golly Miss Molly. IMHO you knocked the sketch right out of the park. Fantastic card! The paper and the layering are magnificent!

I'm having flashbacks to when my kid were young and showers were a luxury LOL! Your card used the Mojo sketch fabulously and I'm sure it will be very appreciated by the recipient.

I'm sure the board member will be so touched to receive such a lovely card. Absolutely gorgeous and I love that it's non-traditional. That makes it more personal.
