Sympathy Cards

My sweet friend Marisa is on the JUGS DT and always does the cutest cards so this week I decided to play along. The challenge starts with some beautiful pictures and some fun colors - here is this week's inspiration board:

This last week has been a bit sad - I have needed three Sympathy cards. This one is for a woman who works in another division of Rheem - she was in a car wreck a week ago and lost a small child. I can't think of too many things that are sadder than that. I wanted to keep it simple and delicate.

I am entering this in the JUGS challenge - JUGS181.

Here is another Sympathy card I made this week. This is for a sweet friend at work that lost her Mother - another very sad thing.

So I wanted to ended this on a happier note. These two individuals are definitely destined for Heaven - what can be happier than that. While they may be missed here - they are already fulfilling their destiny and experiencing a joy we can't even begin to imagine. Wow! Hugz to all!


  1. Both these cards are so beautiful and so thoughtful sweet Nancy. So sorry to hear your friends are going through some tough times. These cards will let them know of your caring heart. You have crafted some beauties for them and they will know you are thinking of them. Blessings going your way.
    Bear hugs,

  2. Beautiful cards! I love the simplicity and elegance of the first card!

  3. Sorry to hear you needed sympathy cards, but both of these are stunning and I know they were much appreciated.

  4. Nancy, your cards are beautiful and I'm sure they will appreciate receiving them. Very sad, indeed for both families.

  5. Hi Nancy, both cards are beautiful and tasteful.

  7. You rocked the challenge, Nancy!! Your sympathy card is gorgeous!! Love all the white space and well done on those rolled roses :) Great second card too. Both are sure to bring comfort to those in need. Breaks my mommy heart to hear of the loss of that little one...

  8. So sorry to hear of these great losses. I will keep them in my prayers...
    The sympathy cards that you made are just "Perfect" I'm sure that they will bring comfort.
    I love the words on the second card, and it's alright with you I would like to case them on a card that I need to make.

    Thank you for the nice comments on my cards. I showed them to husband...and they made his day too.

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
