Deepest Sympathy.../RS59

Good morning lovelies! I have a card I'd like to share with you today. It's based on Retro Sketch #59:

the inside:

Here is the sketch:

I liked the simplicity of this sketch and followed it pretty closely. Yes, another sympathy card, I just made one last week. They're not kidding when they say bad news travels in threes. Unfortunately, I just found out about a death in another friend's family, so I'll be making a card for her also.

Ok, enough depressing talk. Let me show you a couple pictures I took a little while ago. When I let the dog outside, I noticed all this grass and weeds lying on my deck table.

It wasn't there yesterday. Then I looked up:

Some bird decided that our umbrella would make a great place to build it's nest! LOL! I hope it's not too mad when I get rid of what he started to build!

That's it for now. I hope that you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
