Crazy week ends with Sweetness

This has been a crazy week!!  But here is my 'next to last' card as a member of the Design Team for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.  Korin (owner of Sweet N Sassy Stamps) lets you be on the DT for only 6 months.  That's good as the designers don't get burned out and the designs stay fresh.  BUT I am sad that it has come to an end.  The challenges have been great to keep my stamping even when I've gotten so busy!  This week the spin to the sketch was fuzzy!!  So......I needed to create a sympathy card for my husband's Uncle.  His aunt Lavina passed away last Sunday and the funeral was this last Thursday.  I had the stamp in mind already....it is from Inkadinkado.  With the fuzzy spin I thought that I would use some of that beautiful velour paper and use the mono die technique as well.  The end result turned out so textural and it so beautiful to touch.  I hope that Uncle Calvin likes it.  The saying is from Stampin Up.

As for the crazy week........On Tuesday I pretended to be the Choir director at church.  Wednesday was Praise Team practice.  Thursday we left for Southern Oregon for a funeral, came back on Friday.  THEN today it was the rubber stamp convention in Portland which I HAD to go to......gots lots of rubber that had my name on it!!

So sorry you needed a sympathy card. I always find them hard to make. You did a lovely job and the flocked paper adds a richness to the card.
