Distressing is the theme for this week's challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow and distressed is how I felt when creating this card. The eye doctor that co owned the building with the dentist
that I worked for 22.5 years passed away unexpectedly a couple
of weeks ago. His practice was next door to ours and he was in
and out of our office all of the time as he and my doctor were 
best friends. He had just retired the end of August!
Such a sad time for his family and friends.
Dying young at 60 years of age with his last grandchild just 3 weeks old 
and she was the first girl grand child.
So sorry she won't get to know him.

So I created my card to send to his family. I sponged the distressed background with
Tim Holtz distress inks and stamped and sponged the ivory die using 
pop dots to create some dimension.
I used the same foliage die for the inside.

Be sure and stop by at Sugar Creek Hollow for more wonderful inspiration 
from our talented team.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Rick and I are going to
a friends home to shoot some sporting clays today.
Wish me luck!

Hey Patti,

So very sorry to hear of your friend's passing, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family. This is a beautifully heart felt card, that I know will have great meaning for them.
