It's always sad to loose a friend & the fact that someone is elderly doesn't change that. Tomorrow I'll attend the memorial service for the father of childhood friends. He always gave me a big smile & seemed genuinely glad to see me. I'm at the age where the adults I grew up admiring are rapidly decreasing in numbers--this is the second one in a month. It also brings to the forefront my feelings of loss since my dad died nearly 7 years ago. It will be good to see a lot of people that were a huge part of my life, especially as a teenager. Our faith gives us peace in the midst of sorrow.
I used the color combo for the Altenew October Inspiration Challenge to make my card. The stamps are Layered Lily (only the top 2 layers) & Painted Sentiments stamped in Hero Arts Field Greens & Cup O' Joe, Memento Northern Pine & Distress Ink scattered straw (splatters). The ivory panel is mounted to soft gold dp.
Next is my card for PTI MIM Background Building with Frames.
I still had my Take 3 die on the table, so decided to use it. The stamp sets are Harvest Berries & Tiny Tags. My stamping is done with Frost White, Memento Love Letter & Hero Arts Cup O' Joe. I'm also entering Dies R Us. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
