KS Monday – Aug 30th, 2010

Hello everyone~ It’s time for Kitchen Sink Monday.

Today’s card is very personal…I made it my in law’s family. Troy’s grandmother past away on Wednesday :( My kids and I couldn’t attend her memorial service but at least the card was with them… I will miss her so much…my grandparents were all gone before I turned 10 years old (I never met my father’s parents because they died when he was very young). So, she is like my biological grand mother just like my mother in law is like my biological one. I’ve found some comfort and peace every time when I think she is in the better place and no more suffering.

 

I used Multi Step Lilacs for the main image….they are Grandma’s favorite flowers :) I embellished the card with some rhinestones and ruffled wrinkle ribbon. The sentiment was simply stamped using Simple Sentiments.

 

These are the steps I did for each image:
(Lilacs) 3rd – SU elegant eggplant (1 x stamp off) , 2nd – SU almost amethyst, 1st – SU bashful blue, 4th – elegant eggplant

(leaves & stems) 1st – SU pear pizzazz, 2nd – SU old olive, 3rd – SU always artichoke

ご主人のおばあさまが亡くなられたのですね。心からお悔やみ申し上げます。
以前も同じようなことを書いたように思いますが、日本では、お悔やみの場面ではとにかく黒・白・グレー、それ以外はタブー視されてしまいますが、こうしてきれいなカードでご遺族の方のお気持ちをいやしてあげることができたらいいと、本当に思います。

リボン、素敵ですー。ラッフルには何度も挑戦してみていますが、いまだに満足のいく結果になった試しがありません(-"-)
