SSC 214 ~ With Sympathy

Well girls, it's been fun being a part of the Stamping 411 team for the month of July ~ thank you once again for the honor! Now onto this fabulous really need to join in the fun! What a fun card sketch to create with ~ I've enjoyed my time so much playing along with this ~ do join in the fun!

Here is my card ~ I really don't enjoy creating sympathy cards when they are needed. I find it too difficult, so I always like to have some on hand ~ now I actually don't have any except for this new one that I created to go along with this sketch. I really need to create a few more ~ I guess that just doesn't sound so great ~

I need to take a photography class ~ sorry about the shots! BAD!!!!!

How do you ever preamble a sympathy card and leave a post with a *smile* ~ so I'd like to leave you with a few of my favorite shots that I've take lately ~ I hope you enjoy them ~ thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a super day ~ and enjoy your weekend! We are off to a family reunion!

Look at my muscles everyone!

I think sand is one of the food groups?

  6. I feel exactly the same about doing sympathy cards, Denise. So, I finally gathered a series of samples, changed them up a bit, and then held a workshop. I'll be adding your lovely card to my collection. I love the colour combination. Thank you. Carolyn from Edmonton

  7. Denise, the sympathy card is perfect! Wonderful seeing work with the 411 crowd!

  8. Denise, I know what you mean about it being a challenge to have to create sympathy cards. This came out beautifully! I love the embossing and the sponged edges. Very pretty! Great photos of the grandkids, too. How adorable are they?? :)
