As soon as I saw this sketch, I also saw the card in my mind's eye. A dear friend recently lost her father. In a tribute to him, she posted a beautiful picture of him on a boat which she said had been his happy place. I had all of this in my mind when I saw the sketch and I knew I could put together nautical images on a clean and fresh card to send her my sympathy.
The nautical set is Strong Anchor from Verve stamps. It didn't have a sympathy stamp so I used a sentiment from New Mercies. However, it has a lovely stamp for the inside "This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. Hebrews 16:9". He is the anchor!
To my friend: I am so sorry that you are likely seeing this on my post before you receive it. I have no excuses for not getting this in the mail. I've enjoyed our conversations and wish we were closer for a hug and a relaxing cup of tea on your dock. I hope you can find time to rest and refresh amidst all of the decisions. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
