Vintage Sympathy Card

I was shopping at Hobby Lobby last night and they just so happened to have all of their stamps on sale. I seem to have trouble finding the right words to say when I send sympathy cards -- so when I saw this stamp, I popped it into my cart immediately. :) I thought it was a beautiful way to send comfort.


These are some new Jenni Bowlin papers & I love their warm, shabby-vintage feel (I think I just made that word up). I inked everything (from the papers to the ribbon) with Distress Ink to 'antique' it a bit.


I had this little heart Ghost Shape sitting on my craft table, just waiting to find a good home. And... the little dove punch out in combination just brought my sentiment to life.


Thanks for coming to visit! Have a good one! :)

  4. That sentiment is just plain perfect. I like how big it is, often sentiments are so little.
