Huge Online Extravaganza and Praying for You Card


Tomorrow when the sale begins there will be doorbusters for just tomorrow only  and the last day of the sale November 28,  so be sure and check my online store to see what is on sale! There is a huge list of other items that will be on sale during the sales period.

Sympathy Card 

Today I worked on a sympathy card, this is one of the hardest types of cards for me to make and I guess it's extra hard if I don't know the person that I'm making it for. I participate in a group of prayer and card warriors and I try to do my share to send out cards when I'm asked. This past week there was a long list of request, so I have been trying to work down the list.

I kept it simple and just used some Designer Series paper and 1 to 2 stamps. I used the Blooming with Kindness flower from the set and another stamp set.

On the flower I stamped the image in Crumb Cake and then used sponge daubers with Cherry Cobbler and Summer Starfruit ink to add some random color.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Blooming with Kindness and Thoughts & Prayers
Card Stock: Naturals Ivory, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Comfort Cafe DSP
Ink: Black StazOn
Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Dimensionals and 1-1/4" Square Punch

Hi friends! Sorry I've been MIA, but I have a very good reason. We have a new puppy and the little guy is keeping me on my toes and giving me a run for my money! What have I gotten myself into? He is 2 months old and really demands attention right now, so needless to say I haven't had time to work on paper crafting!

Here he is at one of his moments when he was able to keep still long enough for me to get a photo!

We decided to call him Toto, but sometimes I think Spitfire is more like it! I'm sure things will get better since he is still very young. He is a westie/yorkie mix.

I was able to make a quick card today that I must get in the mail to someone that has had a death in the family. I chose to use the Day of Gratitude stamp set and some fall colors. I used several elements on the card. Let me know what you think!

Stamp Set: Day of Gratitude
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Orchard Harvest DSP
Ink: Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo Markers
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Folder, Floral Frames Framelits, 1-1/4" Square Punch

Gotta run, he's waking up from a nap!
