color-blocked sympathy (PDCC, CFC, SSS)

I can't believe it but I need another sympathy card.  A friend's father died.  He was only 71.  Geez.  Enough already.

This was kinda a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants attempt to squeak in under the Play Date Cafe's challenge deadline.  Haven't played there for a long time.

Luckily one of my DCWV pads had the three colors I needed.  Attached the blocks of color to the base and heat embossed with my delivered-in-today's-blizzard-by-the-dear-mailman Clearly Besotted stamps.  A button and twine and that's it.

Also hooking up to:
CASual Fridays - #93 Color Blocks
Simon Says Stamp - A Bit o' Green

Thanks for looking.

Supplies With Deepest Sympathy:
Paper: CS DCWV
Stamps: Clearly Besotted
Ink : Versamark 
Tools: heat tool
Other:  white embossing powder, button, crochet thread


  1. I've been under the weather, but have been following. These last cards you've made have all been amazing. Big/huge congrats on Moxie Fabber. Nice!! Sorry to hear about your friend's dad. Bev

  4. I'm so sorry you need another sympathy card~those are always tough. ;(
    Your card is beautiful and will be a blessing, I am sure.
    As for the birdies~we have geese that have started to nest at the pond. Last
    year a pair settled and stayed, through snow and all. I can't wait for it to warm up, though!
    You are right, a blizzard IS unusual in Germany. We lived in Buedingen for over two years...it's a beautiful country!

  5. Hi Maria - via wunderschön-gemacht and then to Moxie Fab World - I am surprised and amazed to stumble across a virtual neighbor just a couple miles down the Rhine! (I'm near Koblenz) AND - I'm a Michigan girl at heart too - meeting you just makes my day! Your cards are lovely - CASAF - you make me laugh too :) Let's hope the blizzard stops tonight and spring can finally start! Karen

  6. ps really despise lima beans too :)

  7. Your card is so lovely! Though the reason is sad...I am sorry for the loss of your friend's Father. 71 is too young!
