Thinking of you

Since I had an extra day off from work, I really should be cleaning my house since I am never home these days with work taking so much of my time.  I saw my Mother on Saturday, and she gave me some grieve that I need to "spend at least an hour a day on the house in order to keep up with it", and I told her I'm not even awake for an hour in the evening when I am home.  That's why I haven't had an opportunity to make some cards.  She also said, "you can't be spending so much time on your cards" to which I said I haven't had a chance to make one in quite a while, thanks Mom.  So much to her dismay....I had to do one because I needed some "ME" time.  I did cut the grass already so I did so something around the house first.
I used paper from My Mind's Eye - Stella Rose which is my all time favorite paper.  I used a sentiment from my Verve stamps of "Thinking of you" which I like to use for sympathy, and then inside put "during these difficult times".

I love your card design and colour combo. Definitely a good idea to have some ME time - your house will still be there when you feel like cleaning it!! Thank you for joining in our Flora and Fauna challenge at Fab'n Funky.

Those of us who papercraft understand the therapy value behind it. Sometimes my house gets messy too, but it eventually gets picked up.

I love your sympathy card, Stella Rose papers are so lovely! Nice design, great job. Thanks for playing along in our challenge this week!
