Sympathy

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Barb's turn to host our challenge this week and this is her code word: Although CAS is my "thing", I really do find one layer cards difficult:-) I do hope you will play along with us this week. If you do, and you are chosen as the winner, the fabulous Kylie is offering up a $20 gift card to her online store Happy Little Stampers (HLS) I needed a sympathy card and decided that the Altenew Wildflower set would be perfect. This was a really simple card to pull together. I kept to... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. Before I begin my post, I'd like to wish you all a very Blessed Easter! It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week and I have a technique challenge for you.. sort to :-) This challenge has so many possibilities..... whether you choose a circle, a square, a rectangle, a star.... any die cut shape is appropriate! I decided to use the feather dies that accompany the SU Fine Feathers stamp set and had some fun with the background. I began but laying out the two dies onto a piece of Neenah Solar... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. Lesley has a great color challenge for us all this week. They are perfect spring colors.

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, I know I did. Too short, though:-) I finally got my card done for the Paper Players. I find sympathy cards so difficult to make. I put a tremendous amount of thought into the color scheme to use for this particular card. Lesley's sketch was perfect. We hope you will pop along to the Paper Players and play along with us this week. Here's Lesley's fabulous sketch: I used the Mocha Morning DSP as my inspiration for my card. You might think it a strange selection for a... Read more →


Hi everyone. Happy Sunday. Tonight's card sounds so yummy - and the picture that Lesley created to inspire us makes me really hungry. The colors this week were chosen by LeAnne and they were fabulous colors to work with. In fact, I made 3 cards using this color scheme I loved it so much. I think that Lesley must have chosen this picture to celebrate HER BIRTHDAY...... HAPPY BIRTHDAY LESLEY. We hope you had a fabulous day. None of us like creating sympathy cards, purely because of the subject matter. I needed a sympathy card and didn't have any in... Read more →
