Heartfelt Sympathy

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. I can't believe almost  3 weeks have gone by and I haven't posted on my Blog. It's not like I haven't been creating because I have. 

It's still harvest time in our garden and that has taken a lot of my time. When I finish the garden stuff and then make dinner I am usually pretty exhausted. But things are coming to an end in the garden so my time should free up. 

Today I roasted another batch of tomatoes. And I still have at least 2 more batches to go. But this winter I will be so grateful for a bountiful harvest. Even if it takes a lot of time and work, it's a blessing from God to have a garden that produces. 

We are also having a garage sale at my son's home this coming Saturday so I have been pricing items that I am selling. They are a lot of work so I hope what I have will be sold. If not, we have a group here in our community where you can give items away that you don't need any longer. It's a successful group and everything I have listed always gets taken. It helps if you are giving away things that are in good condition. 

Anyway, let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #807 on Splitcoaststampers. Karen was the hostess and she chose rococo rose, highland heather and pear pizzazz. Optional was to use a rose. 
rococo rose, highland heather, pear pizzazz

I have needed some sympathy cards lately and I didn't have any on hand. It's always best to make them when you don't need them.

I like to keep sympathy cards on the clean and simple side. So for this card, I used some Stampin'-Up designer paper from the "Timeless Elegance" collection and colored the rose with Stampin' Blends. The Blends are Stampin'-Up's version of alcohol markers. 

For the leaves I used a Copic Marker in a shade close to pear pizzazz. I decided not to color the other flowers on the paper. Stamped my sentiment in black ink and added a few rococo rose enamel dots to complete my card.

Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time .........God bless.
