So, I am participating in 2 of the 3 days of Lil' Inker Designs December release. I'm still fairly slow when it comes to creating right now, and it isn't second nature like it once was....but I will get there. I'm only going to have 1 card per day, and probably will not use all of the new products this time around...but Laura is graciously letting me ease back into this. :)
I alluded to the fact that part of starting up again was making it feel safe. Part of that is finding ways that I think of Ellie while I create. So, for today I created a sympathy card. When we lost Ellie, there were very few moments during a day that I looked forward to. But I did look forward to getting the mail. I treasured each & every single card that was sent, and I looked at them a lot during those first 8 weeks. I don't look at them as often now, but I do still have them. And they will stay with Ellie's box of items forever.
I never realized how important it is to send sympathy cards. And I will never, ever forget to send one from now one. There are some really beautiful items in this release that can be used for them, and here is what I created:
I chose an elegant white, black & gold color palette for my card, & kept it quite simple.
