With Sympathy




This week my new online friend, Eileen Flannery and I decided to challenge each other to use up some of our goodies we've been buying.  We share a love of Verve stamps and so the Mojo Sketch of the week seemed like the perfect challenge.



I also used a few color combinations to include with my cards, my first one created for a family friend who passed away this past weekend:

for the card on the right I used CQC276


and then a wedding color combination on the left one.

I was pleased that these cards came so easily to me.  After I created the one on the left I was feeling on such a roll I completed 2 of the one on the right.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you are having a great weekend!

These are beautiful Kim. Love the pretty flowers and those colors. The trim on the first one is gorgeous! Sorry to hear you had to use the card tough...

Sympathy cards are as difficult for me as masculine ones, but for a different reason, of course. Yours, here, is tasteful and well as calming, so it's perfect! Thanks for sharing, Kim!

Both cards are just perfect the colors, texture and all!

These are beautiful. It's fun to take the same sketch and create two unique cards! Thanks for joining us at colourQ!
