With Sympathy

A sympathy card for someone dear. I loved having quiet time to create and meditate during this time.

Butterflies... such beautiful symbols of spring... of renewal and life... of the incredible {gift} we are given to become new creations. The Shabby Tea Room is inspired by butterflies this week - check it out and play along. On a FUN {and sassy} note: I'll be a guest designer over at the Tea Room next week and hope you'll mark your crafty calendar to join us!

My layout was inspired by the weekly sketch challenge (MFTWSC16) over at My Favorite Things. (You may have noticed that I tend to "tweak" sketches as I create.) Such lovely ideas and inspiration there each week - a real pleasure to find the time to participate and to work with their {beautiful} products.

I've got several more projects to share this week. I'm taking time to create for those I love and cherish... looking forward to sharing them with you.

Stamps: My Favorite Things: Inspired By Spring, PTI: Round and Round; Ink: SU Soft Suede; Patterned Paper: The Girl's Paperie and Echo Park - For the Record; Cardstock: PTI Rustic Cream and Kraft; Tools: My Favorite Things: Dizzy Doily, Butterflies Die-namic, 1/4" Rosette; Sassy Somethings: SU Crochet trim and Basic Pearls
