One Day at a Time Card

Happy Friday! I'm pretty good about making and sending sympathy cards, but I also like to send a card after a month has passed. I think it's important to continue to support and encourage those who recently lost a loved one. For this card I have used a digital image from Jessica Lynn Originals called Singing in the Rain and colored it with Copic markers. The umbrella was paper pieced with a small polka dot patterned paper by DCWV. Both background papers are from the Springtime paper pad by MME. The One Day at a Time sentiment is by Verve Stamps and was stamped using Memento black ink. For the finishing touches I added three patterned banners and three coordinating sequins. That's it! Thanks for stopping by!!!

This card is entered into the following challenges:

  1. Pretty perfect paper piecing!! I wasn't even trying to be alliterative there, but I guess that's what happened. Mr. Brentwood has never looked better.

  6. Delightful owl, and I think this fella will bring some cheer one day when it may be sorely needed. I appreciated your comment about the timing of sending a sympathy card, as most folks will do it rapidly, then forget that the person still needs comfort later on as well. Loved the paper piecing, the layout design, and the thoughts behind this sweet card. TFS & Happy wkend.

  10. Wow, what a great idea! Most people will send sympathy cards, but I doubt anyone (either than you!) sends a follow up card. And this card is super cute. LOVE that pieced umbrella. I would totally love to have a red polka dotted umbrella. The sentiment is perfect, too. Thanks for playing with Jo's Scrap Shack's Funday Friday challenge.
