I have been needing to send one more sympathy card, but put it off with all the Valentine's that had to be finished. Yesterday's Timeless Tuesday Challenge on the Flourishes Newsletter blog is to use flowers. I decided to pull out my very first flower set....Watercolor Garden. I'm not sure how long this has been retired, but I will always love it. I also wanted to use this week's sketch from Mercy since I never found time last week.
I pulled out the sentiment from Treehouse Stamps and some paper that has been in my collection since the first year I started scrapbooking. It's such a great feeling when I use things I HAD TO HAVE so many years ago. I added some wide lace folded under the stamped panel and some little pearls.
Since I had everything out, I decided to make an extra card for my stash. Sympathy cards are not easy for me, so I like to have some on hand.
I know the blog has been a little naked on pictures lately, so I'll throw in this one. When I was editing the pictures of the cards this morning, I saw Clark setting up his card from Saturday in my "photo shoot area" (a towel over a file box by the open front door). He is really getting into the whole card-making process....from using the trimmer, the Scor-Pal and now setting up for pictures. LOL
Dinner is in the crockpot and I'm heading to the office for a few hours. Make sure you check out this Bazzill cardstock giveaway from my good friend Linda!
