With Sympathy

Good Morning!! Can you believe this week is half over already! Time is just flying by way too fast.

This is a very simple card. I have been needing to make this card for a couple of weeks now and just didn't know what I wanted to do and they are the hardest to make because of the reason. Our son-in-law lost his Grandmother (Cookie Grandma) the day before Halloween. He was really close to her and it wasn't any easy time. As I am sure it still isn't. She was a very nice lady. She raised I believe 16 children, lived alone for as long as she could and celebrated her 90th birthday this last June. She will be greatly missed.

I started out looking at what paper and stamp set to use. As you can see there really is no stamping except for the sentiment on the inside. When I saw this paper I felt that it could stand on its own and didn't need anything else. I did put a rub-on in the upper corner. I did put a background paper and punch the edge with a EK success scallop punch.
I also took a piece of the paper after cutting it down and put in on the inside and stamped my sentiment on it.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a good one,
