With Sympathy..

Just stopping in to share a card I made on our Stamping Away weekend!  I found this fantastic stamp at Joann's in KC!  I knew it was a must have!  So simple to color!

I have been looking at this card since the beginning of April now and every time I see I think for sure it was inspired by Christina! She just left me a comment and said she owns this stamp! Such a gorgeous stamp and it's so her!! Thanks for all your inspiration Christina!

I haven't sat down much this last week!  We have Teacher's Appreciation week this week and I have been making lots of trips to the store....and to the school!  We are also making progress on our basement!  I am thinking my creativity is just NOT happening right now because of this mess!  I am a fairly organized person....everything has a home....when it doesn't have a home....the world is not right in my house!  Lol!  SO, hopefully by the end of this week, I will be painting my dd's room and my new scrapbook room!  We changing the trim down here to white!  I am thinking of going with Asparagus as my wall color!  Kinda daring for me!  BUT I love this shade of green!  It will look so great with the white trim and all my red and black accents!  I will hopefully share pics soon! 

Thanks for hanging in there with me!  Have a great day!

  2. Beautifully done, Laurie! I should use this stamp more often. It works so well for a sympathy card, and I love how you paired it with the woodgrain.

    Can't wait to see photos of your new space! Hang in there!
