Some People Come into Our Lives...

The best part of blogging is learning about people who are in a difficult place and a card could help them. Yesterday I read of a family dealing with the tragic loss of their 2 week old baby and made this card for them. I read about this on Beate`s Stampin_Up_with_Beate@yahoogroups.com. If you would also like to send a card to this family, email me for the address.

I used the Fall Angel from Alota. I painted this image using Twinkling H2Os after I embossed the image with clear detail powder over versafine black onyx. I used water colored paper and used a paint brush to apply the colors. I apologize for the photo. I am finding it very difficult to photograph Twinkling H2Os. Just me, the colors are beautiful in real life.

The flowers used to decorate the inside and the front are from an unlabeled stamp that I gold embossed and painted with Twinkling H2Os. I used the label one nestibility to create the sentiment. This beautiful saying is a stamp by Inkadinkado. I think this is a perfect saying for this situation.
Some people come into our lives and quietly stay. Others stay for a while, leaving footprints in our hearts and we are never the same. I hope this card brings some joy to this family.
Hugs
