Deepest Sympathy

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday here in the States. Who has actually braved the stores and is or has already gone shopping? Not I. No thank you. 

I found out last weekend that my Great Uncle passed away. While I still lived in California, my mom stayed out there taking care of him. So, once a month I would drive up for a visit to see my mom and would see him and sometimes his family too. He was 102 years old when he passed. 

I used a new background stamp I purchased recently by Penny Black (Paisley). Clear embossed with Versamark ink. Than used Distress Inks (Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed, and Old Paper) over the entire image. Used a Creative Memories corner punch, Spellbinders Labels Eight die for the sentiment which is from K Andrew Designs and some sheer blue ribbon.
