Hello & Happy Saturday!
Hope y'all are enjoying your weekend so far!
Life has been keeping me busy the last 2 days so there was no stamping for me. :(
Today I planned to spend the day making some cards and catching up on challenges. I sat down about 25 minutes then the hubby asked if I wanted to check out a local store and of course, I could not say no!
2 hours later I made my way back to finish up and get it posted, so here goes!
I have combined 2 challenges today to make a Sympathy card for a friend who lost her father this past week. I don't see her much anymore since I don't live in the same town anymore but I wanted to let her know we were thinking of her durning this difficult time.
The Freshly Made Sketches and the Dynamic Duos Challenges were a huge help in getting a card made today. I'm so thankful for these challenges!!
This Mixed Bunch set seems to be calling my name here lately and I suppose that's a good thing! I had it since it came out last year and only started using it! LOL Guess you could say i'm a late bloomer! :)
I didn't do so well with the flag that's on my card that is on the original sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I am SO not good with making them. I played with this one for about 15 mins then I said phoooey and chopped them off!
FMS#70 & DD#37 Card:
Stamps: Mixed Bunch, Sentiment from Hero Arts
Ink: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Blossom Punch, SU Square Lattice EF, 3/4" Circle, Vanilla Brad, 2 Sided Tape
Love this card because it says what I want it to say and also because it's very mail friendly!
Well, that's all for today!
Hubby has made a pot of homemade Chicken Noodle Soup for supper tonight!
It smells so good and it's the perfect meal for this very cold evening!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!
