Sympathy Card

Happy Monday To You All,  Hope your day is going good.  It is hot hear but no where near the humidity that we had yesterday, thank goodness.  Our PCP has a 13 year old Yorkie, Bella, who passed this past week.  Bella and our Daisey were littler mates (sisters).  Our Molly & Daisey are also sisters but from two different litters. They all have the same parents and grandparents.    There is a special closeness there with our girls and Bella.   When either Jack or I have to go to our doctor we end up talking more about our babies than we do our health.  
I tried to make a very special card so I somewhat CASED a card I received once from Carol at Our Little Impressions.  I say somewhat because Carol makes the most beautiful cards around but I did give it a good try anyway.  I'm kind of happy with the turn out.  I wrote a very personal message on the inside.  
It is done in Whisper White even though it looks like Very Vanilla here.  The sentiment is by SU! The flourish was done with some alcohol paper I made a while ago.   The paper is two tones and quite a bit lighter than it appears here.  The flowers are made with SU! and MS punches.  The gems are by Pizzazz APlenty.  That is about it for me today.  I wish you all a terrific night and thank you for taking a peek into my little corner of the world.  See you soon.

Hello everyone.  I've been MIA for over a month now and I apologize to everyone for not commenting on your blogs in such a long time.  We redid our entire house: carpeting, flooring, new furniture and decor so needless to say this house was in an uproar for quite a while and I didn't even have a working craft room for a long time.    I am back now and hopefully can stay on some sort of a regular schedule.  I made the first card I've made in over a month.  My youngest grandson is turning 21 in a couple of weeks so I thought I'd better get going on his card.
I made the paper with alcohol inks and stamped the SU image as well as the sentiment in Versa Mark and embossed it with Gold powder. As you can see I used black for my mats.  I'm happy with the way it turned out and I'm thinking (at least hoping) he will be to.  These kids and grandkids of mine are getting too old too fast.  I don't know how that happened since I'm only 29 myself.  LOL  That is the line my MIL used to use and now her new line is "I can't believe all my children are old enough to  collect Social Security".   Time does fly be doesn't it?  Well thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a great upcoming week ahead.  See you soon.
