In Memory of Lucy

Sympathy cards are not cards that any of us look forward to purchasing, making, sending or receiving. But, inevitably, there comes a time when one is needed. I made this card in memory of Lucy. I only met Lucy a few times, but when I did, I remember her full of life and laughter. She touched many hearts and will be dearly missed. My heart goes out to all of her loved ones.

I only received this Verve set, Forever in Our Hearts, last week, so this is the first time I've used it. Julee has created another classic set that I will turn to whenever I want to express my condolences yet lack the appropriate words. I chose to use Amber's Viva La Verve July01 sketch because the layout suited how I wanted my finished card to look. The "twist" to the sketch was to add distressing. I wanted to keep my card fairly clean and simple, so I opted to only lightly scissor distress the edges of my cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by.
