August 29 already, well it's getting to close to the end of summer already.
That means that fall is just around the corner, I am sure hoping for a long warm beautiful fall. I'm not ready for any of that white stuff anytime soon.
I made an inspiration card for my blog yesterday, I finally got to my scrapbook room to actually put a card together. I have all these images colored I just need to put it all together and that's one of the best parts at creating a card.
I really love how this card turned out.The angel stamp is a digital one from Whimsy Stamps called Angel Petals by Stampart Design.  This angel looked so serene so I ended up making it into a sympathy card, not something I typically make . I usually just make birthday,  just because cards, or never put a sentiment on it. But this one just maybe because of the colors I used,  kinda pulled me towards making this with a sympathy sentiment which is from a Whimsy rubber stamp set called Butterfly Sympathy.
 I think while I was making this card I have been thinking of some of the people who I have lost that have and always will remain a big part of my life and who I am today. You know when someone has just touched your life and created memories that you don't ever let go of. Well I think that's where my mind was when I created this card. Not a sad thing just a calm, peaceful angel thing.
I hope that I haven't made you sad by the theme that I have used but maybe just think about that someone who is watching over you as a guardian angel and smiling at you.
I hope that you create something today that has all the passion and warmth that you deserve.
Here is my inspiration card for this week.
Bless you and have a wonderful day.

  1. Your card is very lovely Charlene. You have portrayed the angel as very beautiful and peaceful. I love how you coloured her with your shadings and the gorgeous tones to match beautifully with the card. The sparkles are pretty too.
