Its hard sometimes making sympathy cards



I have the hardest time making sympathy cards and masculine cards. I got this new Stampin Up set called Inspired by Nature. I knew when I saw it in the new Stampin Up catalog I had to have it. I have had it now for about 3 weeks and haven't even inked it up yet so today I said I have to do something with it. I saw this card on the Stamp Shack and it was just beautiful. Jennifer had used her Stampin Up markers on the stamp itself, spritzed it with water and stamped the paper so I did the same thing. Voila, this is what I got. I love how it came out. I thought it would make for a great sympathy card. I never keep sympathy cards on hand so I thought I would make a few to keep in my box of cards. I also made a 2nd card. Now if I could just make a few more ....

The kids have school tomorrow - hmmm, maybe I can come back home and sleep a few extra hours. Sound good? :)

You never have to design another sympathy card, Sherri. These are amazing, just make these again when you need one. Completely wonderful.
