So sad ...


Good Morning & Happy Sunday Everyone!

How sad is it that these days I sell as many Sympathy cards as I do Birthday cards!  But that seems to be the world we live in today so I just hope my cards can bring comfort to those who have lost loved ones!  

Since I am in need of more sympathy cards before this coming weekends craft show,  I decided to join in the challenge over on Addicted to CAS where their theme is Sympathy.


 I have used a very old rubber stamp from Paper Inspirations (circa 2005 - #G10096 Sympathy Calligraphy) for the main focus of my card and simply added a few Nuvo Black dots to finish it off.

I also decided to create a second card that is similar but this time, added a touch of color by using the ink that was left in two of my large sponge daubers.

Once again adding a few dots of Nuvo Black under the sentiment.

I hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

We had such a great evening for Trick or Treat last evening.
We had around 200 kids and many of the parents dressed up too which was nice to see!

 And, how wonderful to have my daughter, granddaughter, her husband & Great Grandson Charlie come join in the fun.  Charlie turned 3 in September and he had a GREAT time going from door to door collecting treats.  He kept saying 'YAY ... CANDY NIGHT' lol.

Thanks for stopping by ... as always,

The Sisterhood of Crafters - Fall Colors


 Hello my friends!

Today I have a card for the new challenge over on The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Our theme, chosen by Sistah Vickie is:

If you have never experienced the colors of Fall, you are missing out on an amazing time of year!  Today, I have paid homage to the beautiful golden colors of fall and how they can 'glow' against the sky!  Mother Nature is an amazing artist!!

Idyllic Floral Scene Old Tree Stamp by Nellie's Choice
I have used Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes & Glue for my tree ... stamped onto black card stock and then fussy cut around.
My background sky paper is by Altenew, called 'Celestial'.
