The Light of My Life

I have a list of cards that I need to create this week for multiple purposes.  Unfortunately I need to make sympathy cards.  You know they say deaths come in threes.  Well, it came in threes for me.  So sad, a friend who just retired in November died from a heart attack, another coworker lost her son in a car accident and our former neighbor who was up in age passed away.  It makes me sad when I have to make sympathy cards, but it seems those are what I make the most of for my personal use.

On a lighter note, I need to make two get well cards for coworkers.  So, while making those I decided to make my RAK cards, too.  And while I was into it, I thought I would make some extras for OWH.

I like to start with a sketch and this time I started with a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

Here is the card I came up with:

I used a mini stamp kit sold by Archivers with stamps by Tim Holtz and a 6 x 6 paper pad by Authentique to create the 4.25 x 5.5 inch cards.  It's hard to see but I used a sparkle pen to color the metal portion of the bulb and the wire in the yellow portion of the bulb.

I was able to make several cards including the two get well cards that I needed along with two more cards for my RAK and several cards for OWH.

Have a great day and be inspired.


Luke 6: 37  Do not judge and you will not be judged.  Do not condemn and you will not be condemned.  Forgive and you will be forgiven.
