With Sympathy

I needed a sympathy card a few weeks ago for some dear neighbors of ours.  These types of cards can be hard to make, but it seems easier if I make them at a time when I don't need them.  Takes the pressure off, if you know what I mean.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty in Blues

Here's a white-on-white card for you today:
I started by stamping the hexagons on the top white layer in a modern color scheme - island indigo, lucky limeade, and pool party. I then cut the frame out of that layer and stuck a strip of island indigo cs underneath, then added the sentiment.  I attached that layer to a white base and added the die cut/stamped flowers.

I colored up ol' Fred Bear for MFTWSC 65 and used some papers my friend Jackie MADE me buy after I saw her use them, teehee!

I am here with the current MFT sketch card, can you believe it?!  This a la mode was perfect for the sketch, and I managed to make a non-autumn pumpkin card!  Love all these colors!

April SFYTT #2

Those of you who know me are not surprised to see me use this TSG set for one of my samples, heehee!  It is definitely my most favorite TSG stamp set, and one of my top faves overall.  And I don't even drink coffee!  (The sentiment is from Everyday Greetings). 

I just love that chevron paper matched up with the denim print.  Makes me happy :).

Here's this month's sketch again:

Check out Jen's blog for the details and to find more inspiration. Hope you'll play along with us!

I pulled out this a la mode for last week's MFT sketch.  I'm still on track to complete them all, I just need to SHARE them all.  My blogging mojo is nowhere to be found, eek. 
See you tomorrow for another sample for April's SFYTT!
Thanks for stopping by.

April SFYTT!!

It's time for a new Sketch For You To Try!  Our sponsor for April is There She Goes.  TSG is one of my favorite stamp companies, so I have lots to choose from when making this month's samples :).  Go browse the store, you will find something to fit your style. 
And some of the sets have TONS of stamps in them, you won't believe it! 
TSG also has fantastic customer service.  Tell Jessica I sent you!

Here is the sketch for April:

I pulled out Bit of Stardust and made a baby card.
I stamped the carriage on patterned paper, cut it out, and popped it up.  I angled the sentiment stamps on my block to go along with the curve of my circle. 

Here is the info you need to know (and check out Jen's blog for the designer of the month):

Okay, let's hop around and see what the other SFYTT Sisters have for you.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great Easter weekend!
