Played along in the Inspiration Challenge #322 over on Splitcoaststampers today.  I was inspired by a photo on the challenge site of a “Pine Baugh Fire Screen” in front of a warm glowing fire.

A friend of mine lost her father last week.  Using the inspiration from the challenge photo, I made this card for her.

Sympathy cards can be so difficult to make.  I always mean to make some in advance of needing them, but that seems a little morbid in a way.  So I’m usually left to make them when the heart is heavy.  But the simplicity of this card seemed so right for the occasion that I did make an extra one to put away that will hopefully not be needed for a long long time to come.

Using the mask that had been created for the sympathy card, I decided to sponge in another rectangle to use for this next card.  Isn’t this the sweetest image.

My husband was truly my childhood sweetheart.  We grew up neighbors, and I have no recollection of ever meeting him… I’ve just always known him!

Thanks for your visit today.  Hope your day is filled with warmth and love.
