Sympathy Cards - Brian Leslie Tripp 27/4/1937 - 23/2/2010

Hi there.
For today's post I have made a couple of sympathy cards.  Unfortunately our Brother In Law passed away last week after a short battle with cancer and these are for his family.  He was such a fit and healthy man, 72 years old and worked hard physically all his life and only retired in the last twelve months.  He was a Volunteer for the Fire Brigade and Saint John Ambulance for all the time I have known him and he still played a very active roll in both organisations. His family and the people of our small country town will miss his dedication to us all.
I printed off a card by Karen Thomas some time ago when she was on the design team  for Inkspirations with the intention of casing it, so this is my version.
Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Flight of the Butterfly, Warmest Regards (R)
Card: Kraft, Whisper White, Mellow Moss
Ink: Mellow Moss, Sahara Sand
Embellishments: Ribbon, Linen Thread
Tools: S/U's Butterfly Punch, Cuttlebug, Trio Tags Nestabilities, Sponge, Dimensionals
My second card  was cased from Marelle Taylor with a couple of minor changes.

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers
Card: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Urban Garden DP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Chocolate Stitched Ribbon, Brads, Accents & Elements Felt Flowers
Tools: Small and Large Oval Punches, Needle and Thread, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, Dimensionals, Computer and Printer for Sentiment.
Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by today.
Stamping Hugs,
