Karol

Yesterday my friend and stamping buddy Karol went to be with the Lord.  She was the friend who had been undergoing intensive chemo treatments recently.

Karol was one of the sweetest women I knew.  She always, without exception, made us laugh and laugh whenever we got together to stamp.  The best part was that she wasn't even trying to be funny.  She was just being her wonderful self and it brought us such joy.

Here is a picture of me and Karol take a year ago after a fun day of cardmaking.  She will be missed.


Here is the card I put together to give to her family:



I colored the glads with prismacolor pencils and baby oil then scored two lines for a "frame".  Kept it simple.




All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:  Year of Flowers: Gladiolus, Damask Designs (sentiment)
Paper:  Plum Pudding, White
Ink:  black (memento)
Other:  Linen/Canvas impression plate, scor-pal, prismacolor pencils, baby oil
