Sympathy Card

Now that Little Miss is in preschool a few mornings a week and I seem to be in a new routine keeping up with everything else, I have found a few moments to my self during the week. This is actually my second time in my scrapbook room this week and I am thrilled! My son is quick to say when I get grumpy: "Mommy, you need a timeout in your scrapbook room". I love that kid, he's so smart! :)

I just gave a verbal agreement to do a vendor show in a few weeks and checked out my ready made cards only to find I don't have any sympathy cards. I think I knew this but with the busy-ness of the last year I never made it a priority to get ahead in making some extras.

I pulled out my bag of leftover scraps from the retired paper pack "For Always" and started measuring. I found I had enough scraps to piece together a few cards very quickly. I used a little Smokey Plum cardstock for a pop of color.

I used the "Rosy Regards" stamp set in Blush and Hollyhock inks for the rose, Sweet Leaf on the leaf and White Pigment in for the flourish from the "Live Laugh Love" stamp set. I also used some new Silver Foil tape to add a bit of sparkle. 

I have found (from experience, ahem) that when I make the time to sit down to make one card, it's best to just mass assemble as many as I can. I made 2 of these before my scraps gave out. So I designed another card with the scraps I had left. But I'll share that one on Monday. *wink*

For more information about the vendor show I'll be at in a few weeks, check out my Facebook page for information. See you next week!
