DD #21

A late post tonight.  It has been a very exhausting day.  There was a lovely service today for my Father-in-Law, 4 hours to Ottawa and 4 fours back.  Athough my husband and I and our in laws live in Toronto, his homestead is in Carleton Place a little town just outside of Ottawa.  I want to send a sympathy card to his surviving sister, but taking it with us today didn't feel quite right.  I will send it so she can appreciate it next week once things slow down again.  The Dynamic Duos colours this week allowed me to create a peaceful and serene sympathy card.




All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  White, Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss
Stamps: Sending You, Turning a New Leaf
Ink:  Ripe Avocado
Dies: Peace Be Still
Impression Plate:  Woodgrain
other: foam dot, black Sharpie

It is definitely a beautiful sympathy card. I love that the woodgrain is embossed in the green. I have been thinking of you a lot during this difficult week.
