Rembrance Sunday

Wow!  Late!  I guess the time change really had an effect on me since I completely forgot to get this posted yesterday. Or maybe it's been the deluge of rain we've also been having. Luckily, it quit in time for the little ones to get out trick or treating. I had a few here this year. Anyway, better get to the business at hand.

The theme this time over at One Stitch at a Time is Anything Goes with Day of the Dead/Remembrance Sunday. I decided on Remembrance Sunday. I don't keep a lot of sympathy cards on hand and this month marks the first anniversary of my brother-in-law's passing. It was right before Thanksgiving last year.

  • Image - Stitchy Stamps - Fall Blessings
  • Sentiment - Whiff of Joy - General Sayings II

  1. Oh, dear, I remember when your brother-in-law passed. So sad. You chose a beautiful image and it makes a lovely sympathy card. I really like the sentiment, too. Our doorbell rang once on Halloween. That's about our yearly average.

  2. A beautiful image and beautiful card. Sympathy cards are always so hard to make but know wherever this one goes it's going to be appreciated so much.

  3. What a beautiful card Maggie - love the serene colours and the gentle sentiment.
