I have said it before and I will say it again. Sympathy cards are always the most difficult to make. So much sadness surrounds them. With a pastor husband and a fairly large church (over 500), I need sympathy cards on a regular basis. This one will be sent to a gal who just lost her father. Sad story.
This was made by using Bleach and the stamp set Elements of Style. I love the old-fashioned look of Wisteria Wonder when it is bleached. It kind of reminds me of the Victorian Era. Bleaching is one of my favorite techniques because it is so easy and the results are unpredictable. For the how-to, just click here.
All supplies are Stampin' Up! - except the bleach.

David and I went to a local Bridal Expo yesterday. Oh my. What an experience. lol. Poor David. I dragged the poor guy along because, after all, he knows way more about weddings than I do! He really didn't want to go at all - can you blame him - but agreed to accompany me. He tried to talk the ticket lady into allowing him to get in free since he's: 1. a guy and 2. He is already paying for the wedding. She just laughed of course and gave him kudos for trying.
We made our way through the entire building, "interviewing", registering our daughter for every give away we saw, and sampling the eatable goodies. I think David did so, just to justify the $8.00 ticket price. Lol. By the time we left, we had 2 bags of "stuff" and I had a headache! The good part was that we saw an old, dear friend of our daughters' and her mother. We haven't seen them in years - they saw us first - so we hugged and chatted and that was worth everything right there.
Bethany and her sisters were in Ohio of course. It would have been foolish for her to fly home since she just left last week. The funny part is the 3 of them spent the day going to a Bridal Expo there! I guess it is a popular week end for Bridal Expos! We will be comparing notes and decisions have to be made soon! Ohio? or Massachusetts? Stay tuned.
Have a blessed day.
