Thinking of You...

This card is one of those that turned out way "different" then you ever imaged it to be. I love the K&Co Que Sera Sera paper and didn't want to take away from that. The cardstock was looking too bare at the bottom, so I used some SU rub-ons that I got from Wish RAK. I also got the SU images from Wish RAK as well.

I know you're never truly prepared for a tragedy, but I wanted to have some sympathy cards on hand. I never seem to have one when I need one and I scramble at the last minute.

Paper: K&Co and SU
Stamps: SU, sentiment is PTI
PTI Ribbon, SU Rub-ons, Copics, Liquid Glass, and Nestabilities


Well, I hope you all have a great Friday! This weekend is the Lee Denim Campaign Against Breast Cancer. If we donate, we get to wear jeans to work today! I'm so lovin' it! Last year I missed out because I was in London. Yeah, yeah...I know London is way cool, so I'm not complaining, but still...it's the only day of the year we're allowed to dress down. I'm happy it's almost the weekend! :)

  2. Your card turned out pretty. The colors are awesome together! Isn't Saturday also some sort of World card day (not quite sure of the correct term)?

  3. Gorgeous Sparkle. I don't make sympathy cards really. I always end up buying one if I need one.

    As for the jeans on Friday for donating to a worthy cause, I understand your excitement. We have about 3 days a year where we can wear jeans if we donate to United Way or to Relay for Life.

  11. This is a stunning card. the logical part of me says you're right about being prepared by having a few sympathy cards on hand, but I am a little superstitious and I have a hard time pushing away the feeling that I shouldn't make one if I don't need it. I know that is ridiculous! :-)Traci
