Sympathetic Mojo

We are nearing the end of summer...still a lot of fun to be had!  But, man, has it flown by!  My yard shows how busy we have been...there are weeds (and some trees that shouldn't be there) everywhere.  I am either going to "invite" my Mom over for a weekend or actually set aside some time to do some yardwork.  I think I like the Mom idea better.  Afterall, she loves to garden...I would only be making her happy right?!  In the midst of all of the fun, my husband had a co-worker that lost his wife to a battle with cancer, so a sympathy card was requested.

So pulling the latest Mojo Monday Sketch (by the way, did you guys see that I was one of the winners of the last Mojo Monday contests!  You can see my card that won HERE), the color combo from the Color Throwdown Challenge #154 , and my beautiful Paper Temptress cardstock, I went to creating a sympathy card.  I recently got the "When There's Nothing Left to Say" stamp  set from Paper Makeup Stamps...one of those sets that can be so perfect in times like these, but yet one you hope you don't have to use.  Anyway, this was the first time I inked it up.  

The beautiful shimmer and sparkle of the card (seen better in the close-up shot) come from the Autumn Hay Glimmer and Gold Sparkle cardstock from Paper Temptress.  Truly beautiful cardstock!  Not sure I would have ever added the photo corner in the LH corner, but it was part of the sketch, so I kept it in.  You can see my post on the Paper Temptress Blog HERE.

Back to bright summer days filled with happiness, so I don't have to think about how it would feel to lose a spouse at such a young age!  Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
