With Heartfelt Sympathy



This card will going to a very dear friend who last her dad last week.  My heart simply breaks for her family.  This will be sent with lots of love to her as she celebrates her dad life with her family. It's so hard to lose a parent.  My thoughts and prayers are with her and her entire family.

I'll be entering this over at CAS(E) this Sketch.

With Heartfelt Sympathy


Happy Monday my friends.  I'm happy to be off work this week as the boys are off on spring break. As this post goes live we are at our first college visit with Ryan visiting Belmont in Nashville. Time is certainly flying. This time next year I'll be sending out graduation announcements.

This card was made a few weeks ago for a co-worker who lost her mom to a long term illness. The card was inspired by Michele's beautiful MUSE card, but I never got to posting it.  Hoping to get lots of time this week to create and get back to a little bit more regular posting schedule!

Fusion: Happy Easter


We're back with another challenge at Fusion! I was inspired by the colors along with the sketch this time.  Realizing Easter is just around the corner I thought I'd pull out my Lil Inker bunny dies.

2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.

PaperSmooches Sparks: Designer Drafts



Welcome back to another PaperSmooches Sparks challenge. I mentioned on Friday's post that I have had very little time to create. Sav (our fabulous design team coordinator) knows that I typically work very, very far ahead for my design team posts.  Not with this card! This card was made in the middle of the night when I had an early morning flight to catch on Wednesday morning. I quickly photographed it and sent it over to Sav.  Have to say I'm pretty happy with the CAS design and interpretation of this sketch.  Yes...I love flowers...if you're not a flower lover I'm sure you get bored on my blog!

The card uses one of my favorite sentiment stamps:  Uplifters and the whimsical  Daisies & Paislies set. 
Please be sure to stop by the other design team members blogs to check out their fabulous creations.

And of course, we'd love to see you play along. You'll have until Saturday at 11:59 PST to join along.   Hop on over to the PaperSmooches Sparks blog to play along with us!

With Sympathy

Happy Friday my friends. This is officially the end of an extremely long week.  I'm one tired camper over here. I'm praying that the weekend is a quiet one! This card was made over a week ago and I haven't had time to post it. It was originally made for a CAS(e) this Sketch challenge that is way past due so I'm entering it over in the CASology challenge.

Have any fun plans for the weekend? We do have show choir tomorrow, but it is a local competition so we will be out and about but only driving 30 minutes to get home instead of several hours.

I'm also thinking I need to do a little stamping shopping.  Have any favorite stamps your eyeing right now?!
