Heartfelt Sympathy~SSSC#52

Wow, it's been a super long time since I've pulled out a SU! set let alone making a total SU! card, but here we are.

January19_2010_SSSC52

I used Karen's great Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #52 from this week for my layout, SU set called Close to a Memory and all SU paper...I forget the name of this paper, but I used Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss cs with it.



I added another sentiment from the same set on the inside of the card as well.  It's always so hard to figure out what to write on the inside of sympathy cards, so I thought at least it's partly done for me now that I added this verse.    Lance and his Dad are going to Calgary this afternoon for a funeral and this is the card I made to send along with them. 

Well off I scoot, Landon is sick (I think just a cold) and has been sleeping since 7pm, so I have a feeling it may be a long night!  I'm not sending him to school tomorrow so at least we can hang out in our jammies together...after we take Kirsten to school that is!

Thank you for taking the time to visit me!
