Peaceful Moments

Peaceful Moments

Welcome back to Stamping with Buffy! I hope you’ve been able to capture a few peaceful moments this week. I’m always sad to see people stressed out during this season of peace, joy, and love. I’m a little anxious right now, because I am caught up with time to spare before Christmas. I just have this feeling that I’ve forgotten something really important and it will hit me Saturday night! I can’t think of anything, though. I have one more last minute gift to buy, but other than that, everything is wrapped and ready. I promised to make a Keto lemon cake and some dairy free mac & cheese on Saturday, but other than that, I think we are ready for Christmas. I can’t wait! All of the kids and Amelia will be here, plus my mom, and, for the first time in many, many years, my niece, nephew, and great-nephew. How fun!

I’ve been making sympathy cards the past couple of days. “Sympathy cards at Christmas?” Yes. Susan’s daughter-in-law Tara is a doctor in Nashville, and she’s is in charge of a program at Vanderbilt that provides comfort supplies to the end of life patients in the hospital.  They are looking for nice, homemade bereavement cards to send to the families, and Susan sent out a request for anyone who can to make some and send them to her. I couldn’t pass that up, because it’s such an awesome thing that Tara is doing.

Here’s one of the cards I made.

Poppy Moments, Painted Labels, Peaceful Moments, Stampin' Up!

I used the Poppy Moments and Painted Labels Dies and the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set to create this card. First, I die-cut the poppy with the Poppy Moments Dies using Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, and Basic Black Cardstock. After I glued them together, I adhered them to a Real Red die-cut Deckled Rectangle that I had embossed with the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set, die-cut with one of the Painted Labels Dies and stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

If you have time to make some cards and want to help out, I can message you the address to send them to. Envelopes are appreciated, but not required. And think of the comfort it could bring to families who are grieving.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day and a very Merry Christmas!
