Sincere Sympathy

A guy at church just lost his Father, so I tried to go a little more masculine on this but then decided on flowers instead of just ferns or some kind of greenery.

I used Alcohol inks for the background with some pearl mixative in there. The flowers have a bit of a shadow because I popped up the blooms with some foam adheasive for a bit of dimension.

Adirondack Alcohol inks -- Stream, Lettuce and Pearl mixative
Memory Box -- Zinnia Bouquet
Taylored Expressions-- Care & Comfort II sentiment stamp
enamel accents -- white on flower centers

I had my one week follow up appointment today for my Cataract surgery and he said everything looks great I can see just as good far away as I can with my glasses on with my other eye, I have to take the drops longer than normal but I can put up with that.  So thankful all went so well.

Off to take my cat in for an appointment now, she is 18 and having problems eating.

Thanks so much for taking the time out to stop by today,

Your background is very pretty, Connie, and I think this looks very appropriate for a guy. Nice sentiment. I imagine you're happy to have your eyesight back to normal!

Beautiful card, Connie. The flowers look perfect for the type of card it is even if it is for a guy.
Wonderful news that all went well with your surgery.
