For Betty

Once again I used a favorite image from Beccy's Place for a sympathy card.  I like the simplicity of this silhouette - and since my eyesight is deteriorating, I tend to choose images that do not need coloring. The watercolor bg CS has shades of green, blue and purple.  A strip of washi tape and lacy ribbon complete the sketch.

Anoher sympathy card = for Marge

Marge lost her husband to leukemia - just 18 days after diagnosis.  He was 89, so lived a long and very blessed life.  I wanted to recognize their deep faith as I made this card.  I used washi tape and a Spellbinder die cut cross as embellishments.
I have several copies of this image in my folder but have lost track of the origin.  If you recognize it, please let me know.\
I missed the deadline for Sketch Saturday!

Crafter's Cafe challenge - Things with Wings

Penguins are a personal favorite.  We have been fortunate enough to have visited several sites in the southern hemisphere with large penguin colonies - they are so fun to watch.  This guy looks pretty proud of his catch!  The pre-colored image is from Dr. Digi.  The current challenge at the Crafter's cafe is things with wings.  We hope you will join us   I used a scrap of patterned paper to represent the sea, and some sheer orange ribbon as well as a narrow ribbon for the bow = both in orange to match the feet and beak.  The sentiment is from an acrylic collection, and I used a metal charm as an anchor.

For Marie Tucker

Unfortunately, I need to send another sympathy card.  Marie has a deep faith, and I hope she finds this a comforting (digi) verse.  The scroll frame is embossed on shiny silvery cs.

Crafter's afe DT challenge card - #244

The current chalenge at the Crafter's Cafe is anything goes - I hope you will join us!  My image is Baseball Bear by All Dressed Up.  i used pastel chalk to add some color.  The strip is Washi tape; Labels die cut, fussy cut the bat and foot of the image; sentiment from a long time possession - Cuttlebug die. Baseball always makes me think of summer, patriotic colors and holidays like July 4.  Maybe just not this summer...
