The hard ones…

Do you have cards that you find difficult to make. Like many people…I always find it difficult to create sympathy cards. How can you ever find the right words? Yesterday I needed to create a sympathy card for an on-line friend who just lost her husband unexpectedly. So sad. I decided to go with a simple, classic layout and some soothing touches. I was actually inspired by this bird clip that was on my desk….

With Sympathy


This design actually uses some brand new releases from Cornish Heritage Farms. As of yesterday, some of Kim’s beautiful silhouette flowers and plants are available for purchase separately in wood mount or unmounted. I used the Fern stamp.  I created a beautiful soft background using the new Fine Lines backgrounder stamped in a pale blue. I love pairing up soft blues and greens together with kraft cardstock. OK, OK…I love pairing up Kraft cardstock with just about anything. 😉

Quick Tip: add a glue dot under the top of clips (such as this bird one) to keep it from moving around in the mail.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!

A little peek…

A little peek into my world…..

Some digital designs for you today that I’ve created over the past couple weeks…the first two, I was just playing around trying to put my newly learned skills to practice. If you’re having trouble reading the journaling, you can click on the photos to enlarge.

Quick Tip:  Don’t be afraid to try something new! Take a class, ask a friend, search the web. Never stop growing.

I found some digital photos from three years ago and just had to create a layout. Isn’t he precious?!
