This week's Feature Stampser is Laura O'Donnell. Laura has a wonderful gallery with so many fun and happy cards! It was a pleasure to see all the various styles!
Unfortunately, I needed to make a sympathy card. A young man at my husband's work, lost both of his parents in a motorcycle accident a little over a week ago. He will be coming back to work on Monday. I just can't imagine. If you would like to say a prayer for him, his first name is Jeremy.
I thought this card of Laura's would make a lovely inspiration. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=107225
I turned Laura's card on it's side and used a different image. I really liked her ribbon, button and twine and just used different colors. The stamp is from SweetnSassy stamps and colored with Copic markers. I had seen this image used a few times and always LOVED the way all of those cards looked. (Bridget, yours was vividly beautiful!)
Laura, I am so grateful that your card help guide me in making this sympathy card. Thank you so much! I am going to try to comeback tomorrow and make a FUN card. Because your gallery is filled with happiness, light and love! I woud like to reflect that aspect too!
Thank you for hosting Julie and always giving us wonderful examples! Thank you for stopping by to take a peek.

I'm so sorry! What an awful tragedy! Your card is lovely, Kathleen, and to me, birds are symbols of hope and always bring a smile to me. Your little goldfinch is wonderful and I'm sure Jeremy will appreciate it.

Kathleen, your card is very beautiful!! I like the card you chose to case. It is so difficult to make sympathy cards, and this story is so heart breaking. I will certainly say a prayer for Jeremy. Oh boy! I always think motorcycles look fun, but far too often you hear these stories. The gold, yellow, and orange are stunning on your finch card.
