sharing your sorrow

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We did something out of the ordinary for us today. After church we went to the Pittsburgh Playhouse for the musical presentation "Time after time".

My son & daughter-in-law gave me tickets for my birthday. It was back in September. This was a different gift for them to give as well. We enjoyed our afternoon together.

The play was done by our local university students. They are all theater majors. Such great voices and acting ability.

Now onto my card for today. I needed a sympathy card for a friend of ours from church who just lost his Mom. She lived a full life and now has gone home to heaven.

Today also is the featured stamper challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week the honors went to Kristen aka mommylvs2stamp. She has a lovely gallery.

I chose her anniversary card to re-create. I kept her same layout.

I changed the colors of paper, used a different stamp set. This set is called thoughts and prayers from stampin-up. I really like this set for sympathy cards.

My designer paper is Parisian Breeze also from stampin-up. Instead of the pearls she used I cut out 3 flowers from the designer paper.

Well it's time to turn out the lights in charmed life land, my friends.

I leave you with the words from

Psalm 33:20
We wait in hope for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield

card recipe:
stamps: thoughts and prayers
paper: su baja breeze, ww, parisian breeze dsp
ink: old olive, choc chip


  1. Wonderful choices of colors and patterns for this sympathy card, Mary!! What lovely work!

  2. So pretty! I love that tree stamp.
