Bird Blooming Sympathy Card

Coffee of the Day - Dulce de Leche

It's Friday! the weekend is almost here! :) I hope you have some fun things on your calendar! I have LOTS of craft projects that I simply MUST get caught up on.

Today is my cousin's funeral, so it's fitting that I am sharing the last of his family's sympathy cards. I also want to show a photo taken of him with his children. it's several years old, but definitely captures the love they all share for one another. :)


RIP, Dan. we love and miss you.


my card uses the pretty image from A Day for Daisies called, 'Bird Blooming.' papers are from the Basic Grey Hillside collection, dies are by Spellbinders, grass green seam binding is from Really Reaonable Ribbon, flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts, and buttons are from my vintage stash. once again, that all purpose sentiment is by SU!   you can tell I sure do get a lot of use out of it!

a few accent dots were added with a white gel pen. I did add some little touches to the mulberry magnolia with inks and watercolor brushes to have it match a bit closer.

thank you so much for stopping by today! :)
