Deepest Sympathy



I hope you had a wonderful weekend. It was absolutely beautiful here with the weather in the mid 70s.  We went out yesterday and got some fall pictures of our whole family. Happy to say we have a good photo for our Christmas card.  We asked a stranger to snap a picture of us.  Lucky it turned out!

For my card today, I was inspired by Maureen, at Mama Mo Stamps.  She had an iPhone app and one of her cards featured the gorgeous ink above.  I had to buy it and make a card fairly close to her card from the app. I love the color spectrum and am playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch.  I always love this challenge from the amazingly talented Chrissy.

I hope your weeks all get off to a great start.
