New Blog.....First Post!!!

I'm sure your surprized to see me back here with a new blog! Since I last posted back in May I deleted WeeBeeStampin in thoughts that i'd probably never blog again or come back to it later down the road. I also hoped that I could restore my old blog but that didn't happen either.
So, today is a new day for WeeBeeStampin4fun!!
I had to sit down today and create a card for our hair stylist, old neighbor & dear friend, Kathy, that lost her son this past Sunday in a car accident. He just turned 20 years old and what a shocker. We are all speechless beyond words and sending many thoughts & prayers out to Kathy and hoping the good Lord will see her through this....
I borrowed this retired set from Jen the the other day to make an anniversary card for my wonderful husband. Wednesday (July 21st) we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary but it seemed overshadowed with other things going on in our lives right now. I never got the card made for him for i'm sure he understands. I used it instead to make Kathy's sympathy card. I've always loved this SU Stipple Rose stamp. This stamp was actually mine till a few years ago when Jen bought it off of me when I was cleaning out. She was gracious enough to allow me to borrow it to stamp off some images for future use. Thanks Jen!
I was in the mood today for something my roses ended up being a beautiful purple! Everything else just seemed to fall into place with this as if I never stopped stamping! :)

Card Details:

Stamps: Stipple Rose (retired), Sentiment from Just So Sayings (retired)
Paper: Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery, PTI Select White
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Accessories: Gold Circle Clip, Gold Butterfly (inside), Sheer Ribbon, Square Lattice SU Embossing Folder, MS Border Punch, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape

I really like my card and hope that it brings some comfort to Kathy in the coming days.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Thursday!
