I realize it's been a long time since I've posted to my blog. Boy, how time does fly!
Our November weather has been incredible this year, though October was very wet. It's been nice to see the sun shine and get the leaves picked up off the yard.

My project for today is a sympathy card. We lost another good friend who lives in Wisconsin.
I made this card using a set from Our Daily Bread Designs called Light of the World. I've had this set for a while but haven't used much lately. I love this image and the verses that are in the set.
You may want to check out their newest Christmas sets that were just released, they look great to me.

I pulled out my Watercolor Pencils from Stampin' Up! to color the main image.
I felt that the paper used was great for this time of year.
I'm going to have to admit one mistake that I made and tried to cover up. When I was doing the paper piercing, I forgot to leave the card open and ended up piercing thru both layers of cardstock. That's why the inside of the card has the paper from the front carried onto the inside. I figured it would help to make the piercing look intentional rather than the mistake that it really was. My daughter said that she like the fact that the inside was decorated as well as the front.

The inside of the card uses stamps from 2 different stamp sets from Stampin' Up! and also a stamp from Stampabilities.

I hope you like the card. I know this man's wife will appreciate it since she is also a stamper and loves to receive hand made cards.

Have a great week!

Oh this is so beautiful. Sometimes it is hard for me to make Christian cards because I want them to really reflect the Lord. This one does that and it is just perfect!
