Close as a Memory~Mojo 74

Unfortunately I am in need of another sympathy card. My Grandmas brother passed away on Saturday and my parents are headed to the service on Friday. I will see Mom and Dad tomorrow so I will give it to them then.

I just got this set from SU and I really like it. I had trouble with the sketch so there isn't a sentiment on the outside, but I finished the inside up pretty and put it in there instead.

I think my troubles started when I decided I wanted to make a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card instead of my usual 6" x 6". I don't have any 6" x 6" envelops left, so that's why I went with the A2 size instead. It seems like such a small work area when I am used to the bigger square cards or even the couple of 5" x 7" ones I've done lately!
Short & sweet post today, I am trying to get some things done around the house and caught up on some laundry...are you ever really caught up though??
Thanks for coming to visit!
