Be Still and Know

LentenRoses3-25b.

I needed a sympathy card this week. I really dislike making a card like this but this Flourishes set called Lenten Rose is perfect.   Time is such a precious commodity that we take for granted.   It makes my time this week with 
my college daughters even more precious. In a second your life can be changed. 
I thought this sentiment would bring comfort.  
  
LentenRoses3-25.

I watercolored my image with markers.  I stamped my image onto watercolor paper and then cut it out with my Grand Calibur using Spellbinder's Label Fourteen Die... I also used the Nested Lacey Pennant set to cut out the sentiment.  I used May Arts Silk White Ribbon.
Don't forget that today is the last day to get the New Release Bundle at  10% off..HERE. 

Also don't forget about the Gambler's Sale..All sale items are now 45% OFF.

I also had several stampers ask how I store my Flourishes stamps.. Here are some pictures of the Clear Plastic Boxes Flourishes carries for stamp storage.. I use the small ones and can fit two stamp sets in the box... 
 Here is the case closed with a set in it..
Here it is open.. The second set can fit on the left hand side..

NOW check out what the rest of the team created:

  29. Yes I know what you mean about Sympathy cards, they are hard for me too. I'm always trying to balance fresh and uplifting without getting to cutie at the same time. Yours is perfect and the sentiment is perfect too. Very Nice! I'd love to know what you put on the inside or did you leave it blank to write in?
    Thanks for showing how you store your Flourishes too!
