Clean and Simple

When my friend Joanne lost her dad this week, I wanted to pull a card off the shelf for her. Looking at the cards I had on hand, nothing seemed "right" for me.

In my head, I had these colors, and knew that the branch out stamp set was what I wanted to use, and I made her this quick but beautiful, clean and simple card.

A sympathy card is nice, but when it's a friend.. I don't know... thinking of you just seems better.

I stamped the bird on the tree using white craft ink and added some colored pencil over it. I ended up having to redraw him a bit, as a snowflake made him disfigured, I think I did okay. The snow was stamped with white craft ink and set aside to dry.

When I was younger I lost my dad right before Thanksgiving and it was a tough year. Wishing you joy as you spend time with your family this holiday Jo. Hugs,
