With Sympathy. . . 

for the passing of a friend's father.

Hi Everyone!

      I can't believe that it is well into August already!  Where has the summer gone?  I hope that you are all having a wonderful summer.  The weather here has been great.  We have had many wonderful weekends at the beach, or the shore, as we call it here.  I love to walk along the shore and collect sea glass.  I will share some photos of these precious gems in a post later this week.

     Today I am sharing a masculine sympathy card that I made for a co-worker who lost his father.  The paper is all from DCWV stacks.  I cut the shapes with my spellbinders and stamped them with K. Andrews Sympathetic Sayings stamps.  I thought this sentiment was perfect for this card.  The ink is Stampin' up Basic Gray.  The ribbon is from my stash and the brads were applied with my Imaginisce heat tool.  I always forget about this nifty little tool - it really works well!

     Thanks so much for taking time to look.  Have a great day!
