My husband's Grandmother Rosie recently passed away, just a couple weeks short of her 102nd birthday. At 101+ years, I don't think any of us can argue that she didn't live a full life. Her wit, strength and flair for telling a story will be missed but forever locked in our hearts.
Today's card is a sympathy card for her son (my father-in-law). It holds special stories about Rosie. I'm sure he will treasure it. I think I'm one of the few that really enjoys creating masculine cards. Click and scroll for more masculine card samples.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS: .
- Finally! I found a way to use the egg stamp in the new Nature Walk stamp set (Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog). Inked in VersaMark, it becomes a soft, coordinated element.
- A Stampin' Write So Saffron Marker (the fine point) quickly adds a shot of "yellow."
- The "because I care" sentiment is from the Because I Care Hostess Level 1 stamp set. Did you know hostess rewards are available with on-line orders? Click to learn more about REWARDS.
