Nautical - Beach

Hi there!
Today's post is short and sweet, as I have some serious housework to do!

Impression Obsession's challenge this week is: Nautical/Beach.
I've not participated in a challenge for a while, so...
Thought I'd get this gorgeous stamp out, and create with it.
We had need of a sympathy card or three, and thought this would work well.

Impression Obsession 'Rowboat', Impression Obsession 'With Deepest Sympathy'  All coloring is sponged on using different shades of Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
I think this would be considered okay for the challenge - hope so, anyway!

Have a great day - hugs to all,

Patti J.

It's so sad when we need to make sympathy cards. Virtual hugs to you, Patti! I think this card is lovely and the quiet scene is just right for the sentiment.

A beautiful card. People seem to appreciate home crafted cards when they are dealing with their grief. I have had folks come up to me afterwards and thank me for the card I made and were so appreciative of it. I guess it means a little more than just signing a card from a store when they are made with love and caring thoughts.
Thank you for sharing your lovely work. :)
