Good morning. After a cool night the sun is shining and it's so pretty outside. I always enjoy a sunny day.  I have yet another sympathy card to share. The emboss folder was a C/Bug Plus - Carly -. I love the cut-out oval. I had colored up a little pot of spring flowers, and thought it would make a pretty focal point for this cardfront. Another neighbor has lost his Mom after an extended illness, so I was glad I had some supplies ready to get a card made. I hope this need for Sympathy cards passes....I don't remember the stamp name, but if you want to know, leave a comment, & I'll look it up. The image is colored with Copics. I'm debating whether to put a sentiment on the front, but I think I'll just put the sentiment on the inside. All cardstock used is lightweight as I find it embosses better for me. Candee ( ) gave a tip to use 2 pieces of c/stock when embossing with the lightweight c/s. The folder won't cut through the top layer and additionally, you get a second emboss for another card. That's a great tip, but I forgot to do it here, and the folder did cut too heavily. It's not noticeable once I adhered the white to the pale blue, but it's a good tip to remember. I have one more Sympathy card to get mailed out, and I used this same design for it, changed it up just a bit. I'll post that one later, and then hope to get back to 'happier' cards. Have a great day, and thanks for looking.

  1. Lovely card Mary! Beautiful design and coloring. I hope you get to move on from the sympathy cards. Always seems to come in threes or more for me as well, always so sad.


For the time being, please just ignore the Word Verification if it shows.

Thanks for taking time to leave a comment. I appreciate each of you who have looked at - and hopefully enjoyed this post. I will do my best to pay a visit to your blog as well. Have a day full of Blessings.
