The mother, "Miss Ruth" to my kids, was just the sweetest person of all. She loved my kids as if they were her own grandkids. It was always a treat to drive into our driveway and see Miss Ruth on her front porch and giving us a wave and a smile. She always invited us over for a visit. When the kids were small, we went over often, but they grew and it wasn't so easy to get them over there--and we were always busy running here and there to sports and school activities. Even still, Miss Ruth was always there with a smile and a wave and an invitation to come over "anytime."
Miss Ruth passed away last week. We're sure going to miss her smile and wave.
Here's the card I made for her daughter and son-in-law. I used four stamp sets on this simple card! (I was inspired by a similar card I saw on Pinterest.)
I stamped the flower stems from the "Wild About Flowers" set in Old Olive onto a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flower tops in Crushed Curry. I added this panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat and then, using Stampin' Dimensionals, onto a Thick Whisper White card base, cut lengthwise.
I stamped a small butterfly from the "Papillon Potpourri" set in Rich Razzleberry and punched it out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I folded the butterfly in half so that it would have some dimension and added it to the card with a Glue Dot.
Next, I stamped the sentiment and label from from the "Rose Wonder" set in Rich Razzleberry onto a Whisper White scrap and cut it out with the matching Rose Garden Thinlits. I adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Inside the card, I thought the sentiment from the "Heartfelt Sympathy" set was perfect. It's also stamped in Rich Razzleberry, but not pictured: "Remembering the life of someone so special, and sending thoughts of sympathy and peace." Miss Ruth certainly was someone special and we'll miss her!
