I used the K Andrew Owly Hoo Stamp Set. I love that the phrases on this stamp set are broken up into smaller groupings of words, so you can actually combine them to create your OWN phrases. I did was able to combine a few of the words to create the phrase "you are in my thougts" for a sympathy card for a family friend.
I decided to use fall colors not only because of the time of year it is, but also because I felt like the bright orange and green helped to add a little touch of cheerfulness to the card. Even though it is a sympathy card, we sould rejoice in the life that this person had, and that is the feeling I wanted this card to bring.
