In my thoughts.....

Hope your week is off to a great start.  I am in for another busy week--since the promotion it has been non-stop crazy!  LOL.

Well today I found out that an employee of mine had an unexpected death in his family.  I find Sympathy cards some of the hardest and a masculine one can be double tough.

I used the new Avonlea paper and Words of Comfort stamp set (C1524) from Close to My Heart.
I used a vintage large buttons and used dark brown twine to make it look like I attached it to the card.

I inked the edges with chocolate ink.  I also added some texture with my cuttlebug and a 5x7 folder to the card base itself--I don't usually do this to the base but thought it was a nice touch and tied to the pattern paper well. 

Make it a great one-
