Sympathy Card

My husband's Aunt sadly past away last Thursday due to breast cancer.
I never had the chance to meet this lady but I know she will be sadly missed by her husband and three kids.

I decided to use cards that Karen has been doing as inspiration.
I started with white Bazzill card then a layer of Stampin Up Barely Banana.  Some more white Bazzill card that I firstly stamped up with some rose images from the Stampin Up Both Way Blossoms stamp set.  I used SU Barely Banana and Apricot Appeal inkspots.  I then ran the card through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots folder.  I wasn't happy with the roses as they seemed a little too washed out.  So punches out some yellow and white medium retro flowers, put together with cream paper flowers and a split pin.  I had printed the sentiment on the computer.  Still need a little something so I added a little black bow.

My thoughts go to the family.

It makes me really happy that I have joined a Relay for Life team and we are helping raising monies to go towards fighting cancer.
Our sausage sizzle last Friday was a huge success.....we raised approx $420.00.
This gives us a total so far of $976.00.
