Mojo Monday/Mojo396-Heartfelt Sympathy

I fun sketch at the Mojo Monday Blog today and it is contest week, so be sure to play along. I have used the colors from the Color pretty. I have a huge order of sympathy cards I need to make, so I will be trying to complete them this week. I used a flower journaling card for the focal point, very pretty. The sympathy sentiment is from a retired Verve set. Add a little glimmer to your life....sparkle & shine!

with sympathy

I am so far behind on making cards....sigh...I have a lots of sympathy cards to make. This months SCS Cards For A Cause OPTIONAL challenge is to make sympathy cards; so I need them for that, I have an order from one of my faithful buyers, and I thought it would be a great time to add some to my stash. I have used the Lil' Inker stitched butterflies...I luv these! Check out all detail list below.

I played along with today's SCS Featured Stamper Challenge, I was inspired by Karin's card here. I really liked all the embossed layering, so I embossed the pink hearts over the white embossing. I also used the colors from the SCS CC528. Add a little glimmer to your life.....sparkle & shine!

Good morning, I had such fun with this weeks Mojo Monday tall & skinny sketch! I played along with the Fusion inspiration challenge and was so inspired by Amy Tsuruta card, I tried my hand at my own watercolor stripes. I have seen this technique done by others too, but saw Amy's first....awesome card Amy! I used Crafters Companion Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, I blended two colors and brushed with a watercolor brush...such fun! I cannot wait to see what you create this week with the tall & skinny sketch. Add a little glimmer to your life....sparkle & shine!
