I’m Here Card

I’m trying to fill up the sympathy section of my card basket, but I’m not sure if this really qualifies as a sympathy card (too frivolous?) or if it is a thinking of you card. I am going to put it in the thinking of you section for now.

Let me know – sympathy or thinking of you.

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – American Craft Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Trio of Giraffe Cards

I splurged on a new (to me!) American Craft Amy Tangerine pad of paper. (Alas, I should be practicing fiscal austerity measures, I bought a smartphone this summer!)

Offspring3 has a friend who adores giraffes…so these are for Offspring3 to send.

Denim Square Hello Card

I am working on a request for more “hello” cards, and some that are gender neutral.

This is a square card (4.25 x 4.25 inches), because of the pattern on the denim paper. And, sadly, this was my last scrap of very old denim paper. I suppose I need to cruise by JoAnn’s and Michael’s to see if either of them have anything similar now.

Have a nice weekend!

Supplies: Paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise, die – Essentials by Ellen.
