Symapathy Card

Hello friends...
I know many of you were used to me posting everyday, but due to a vacation and the grandbaby staying with us for awhile, my life of crafting has changed! Things will get back on track, as she is going back to her parents on Friday, tomorrow... sad, but I will have my crafting time back.

Last Sunday, as we were coming out of church, we got a call from my son, who informed me his half brother from his father had been killed in a car accident just 200 yards from his driveway. His name was CJ and he was just 26 years old... I made this card for his family.
I chose to go back to my roots and make a gatefold card
I used an image called Fairydust Butterfly from Lexi's Images
WOC flowers
Floral embellies from the wedding department of Hobby Lobby
Pearl trim from my stash
DP from The Paper Studio
I looked up poems on line and found this one
Scripture from "The Bible"

I plan to enter these challenges:


  1. Hi Rina what a dreadful tragedy for your friend , your card to them is beautiful . Glad you are getting back on track Hugs Elaine
