Sweet Memories

Three cards for various members of a very lovely family- If you want to read the shortish story visit my previous post titled "Thinking Of you". The other two cards were posted in earlier posts- if you want to check them out please just scroll down.

image    This is the third card I made this one for the brother- he has always been an outdoor sort of guy and he is a great artist but I just couldn't create anything  to suit and this sort just came together. I started with the  background papers- I hope it doesn't appear to morbidly bright and cheerful but he is going to so miss his sister even though they were different ages they were more like twins so I thought I'd try to give him something to bring a bit of cheer into his life at the moment.


Yesterday(Friday) was the funeral-it was so sad -they still don't know the cause- so many people and so much sadness- I spent a lot of time afterwards with the brother and will be keeping in touch more often than I have been-the good thing he has to look forward to is he will be a dad for the first time in April so that is a good thing to help keep him focused and it will also give the girls baby someone to grow up with because I know they will be just like their respective mum and dad-inseparable.

This is for the JustRite Friday Challenge 046- Technique - Scoring!- I am sorry I didn't use any of their stamps because I mainly have Christmas and Birth ones so I again used Paper Makeup stamps and a sympathy one from my stash. I did include some scoring sorry I only own a Scor it scoring board (so a scor pal would be very handy) and decided to add the texture of it across the grain from the coloured stripes.Hope you can see it in the pictures.
