A Miracle and Simple Sympathy!


Wow! Finally a post from me! Who just fell off their chair?! Life has been, for lack of a better word, interesting since Jan 4th. I had a few new supplies come in last week, and couldn't wait to play with them. Always, Mojo Monday is a good starting point! Went there first thing this morning, and they had a fabulous sketch. Than, I peaked at Rachel's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, and moved by the colors and flowers. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things soon and start posting regularly again. I'm missing peaking at blogs, and doing challenges.

The image is CC Designs Spring Kit. So cute, if you haven't seen them yet. The new Basic Grey papers are so pretty too. And those prima flowers were at Michaels, so nice chance to try them out.


Supplies: PTI cardstock, copics, Basic Grey cardstock, primas, stickles, perfect plum ink, mellow moss ink, nesties.




A blessing for this card was my friend's Grandfather recovered after they went to say their goodbyes. I had left town with Gabi on a dance competition, and hadn't heard the good news. So, I made a card this morning, and turned out I didn't need it after all. Sympathy cards are hard for me. This one turned out nice and clean.


Supplies: TAC swirly stamps, PTI With Sympathy, Elegant eggplant cardstock, and ink.
