With Heartfelt Sympathy...

Here's my other Petal Prints card. I was going to feature another design, but I just loved the layout that my current SU! demo showed us at our last club (go Paige!). The stamp sets used are Petal Prints and Close as a Memory. I also used Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, and SU! Designer papers. I only had to use Bashful and Chocolate inks. The image is popped up with dimensionals, and chocolate grosgrain finishes it off.

I promised another Petal Prints card, didn't I?! I hope you all like it, but this sympathy card is unfortunately going to be sent to the McClure family. They lost AJ McClure yesterday. Bro. McClure has been sick on and off for several years. He, and his family, were close personal friends of my in-laws. I was fortunate enough to meet him before he became ill, and I will never forget this warm and outgoing man of God. We send our prayers and our love to his family and friends who are having to say goodbye: but we all know that we will see him again because we made the same decision he did...we trusted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Because of this, we know that Christians never really say goodbye, we simply say I'll be seeing you. May God comfort and shower His love and grace on those whose lives Bro. AJ has touched...he will be missed.

Remember to tell each other that you love one is too short, and death is too real.
