.You can use any of The Thrifty Stampers tutorials.
 I have chosen Makeup Chalk. Yesterday was a long day, one of those
 things no one wants to do , attend a Memorial Service
. A friend of ours had a stroke last week and he went home to be with
 the Lord on Easter Sunday. He had to be the most generous giving 
Christ like man I have ever know!! He constantly gave to those in need,
 one time he even gave his new Harley away and for that  God blessed his with another! 
Randy didnt know the word can't, his favorite saying no matter 
how difficult the job "Piece of cake!!"  He was Operations Manager for the city
 and Assistant Pastor of his church. Randy will be Greatly missed by many!!  
 So I made a couple of cards for his  sweet wife Sheila and family.
I found an eyeshadow that was the perfect shade to match my papers and 
used it to highlight the script embossing and around the sentiment. I don't know 
the name of this kind of card but the base is flat and the triangular part opens
. Some stitching and a little flower to create a latch for the
 triangle made a simple card.
I used the hummingbird from the Hum Along Set and the sentiment
was from the Island Life Set. All the Stamp Sets and other stamping
supplies can be found at Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co.

I made a second card using the new Glad Glads image, stamping it with some
SU ink and mounting to made a focal point. A little punching to made the border
and its done. I did some stamping on the inside but didnt take a pic.

My teammates have all chosen different tutorials. Be sure to stop by....

Davi, your assistant pastor sounds as if he was the most Godly man he could possibly be and that kind of soul will be truly missed on this earth.

Your cards are so pretty and I'm sure they will be a great source of comfort.
