Hello everyone....

I've spent the past few minutes doing something I hate to do in my craft room.  (and it wasn't cleaning!)  A very dear friend of mine has been having some struggles and dealing with ageing and ill family members and on top of surgeries and nursing homes and trying to take care of everything her Grandmother passed away yesterday.  So I've spent the last hour making a very special sympath card.  This wonder friend sent me this beautiful Tim Holtz, Natures Elements stamp set on Monday for my Birthday and I wanted to use it to make her card.  Thanks you so much for the beutiful stamps and perfect card for my BIG day! 

Traci, I'm so sorry for your loss and know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. 

I started with the PTI challenge to use one of the designers favorite color combos.  I came as close as I could to Betsy Veldman's color choices and also lifted her beautiful design for the card.  Thanks Betsy for the inspiration.  You made this job a little easier. 

I used my score pal to add texture to the background, then stamped the images and cut them out.  I mounted the images on a Spellbiners Die cut and added a sentiment fromm PTI's last years Anniversary Set.


  1. Never fun cards to make but I love your CASE. :)

  2. So pretty! Love the rose buds and colors.

  3. Joyce, I am sorry I didn't see this until today...I love this is one of my favorites received ever! Thank you so much for the kind words and helps a bunch to have caring friends like you!


Thanks for commenting, they really do brighten my day!
