My friends favorite color is purple, so I started with a Lovely Lilac base. I didn't have any 'sympathy' sentiments so I picked up the "Our caring thoughts..." by Hero Arts at a JoAnn's. I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lilac craft ink and embossed with clear powder. I used the Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background and then my sponge daubers and Almost Amethyst and Certainly Celery ink to enhance the dry embossing. I finished the card with a simple ribbon knot. Making sympathy cards makes me sad.

I did not have large brads that matched so I painted some yellow ones to match by smooching them into my Pink Passion craft pad, dipping in clear embossing powder and heating with my heat gun. I did two coats to get the color just right.
Anyway, Some college friends and I are hosting a baby shower and I am responsible for the invitiations. At first, (sonogram #1) they were told the baby was going to be a boy so I stocked up on a bunch of Ballet Blue card stock and started hunting around for the retired "Toy Box" stamp set. I knew I wanted to use the airplane from the set for the invitations because Rhonda's husband is a pilot for a major airline. (I don't have anything boyish- ya know). Well, at the second sonogram in January, they were told the baby 'might' be a girl. Whoa, we are elated but I had stop the presses.. didn't want to use Ballet Blue if she was having a girl!
I Cuttlebugged the back with the "Created for you with love" embossing folder from the To/From set. (I think I am hooked on that one little embossing folder.

This card is heavy with five layers on the front plus the rhinestone brad and ribbon and two additional layers on the inside so it would probably take additional postage to mail it (I am sending it in a package so I will have the postal person weigh it and find out).
I've been very busy with KA. I'm scheduled to be at a bridal show just about every weekend this spring! In the last couple of weeks I've done shows at Macy's and Dillard's. The Macy's one was huge with more than 400 brides in attendance, it was the largest show I had ever worked/attended. It was fun but very hectic and it took several days for my feet to recover!
This weekend I will be at The Great Bridal Expo at the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Dallas. If you're getting married and in the area, please stop by!
