Sympathy Card

One of my supervisors at work asked me to make a sympathy card for a family member who lives out of state...she is going through postpartum depression and a friend of hers just committed suicide.  So she is going through a difficult time right now.  I love this set from Create With TLC, it was a bonus set (actually two different sets) gift with purchase...  I added lace, a button, burlap and a rose & leaf die.  The sentiment is mine...
***tip***I had a bit of a difficult time layering with the burlap.  I did figure out however, that if you glue the first down and run something flat over and over it until it is mostly dry, you can then add the next layer.

WOW With Gold Wedding Cards with Incy Wincy

This week the challenge theme over at Incy Wincy is "WEDDING - White On White WITH Gold".  We are being sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.  I used the beautiful Queen Elsa (love it, Elsa is my son's Baby Mamma's name).  I love how Lindsay drew this one so that it looks like she has a sheer cover up over her dress.  I decided to make the under dress gold and just add some stickles to the sheer cover up.  I used some dies to cut out a bunch of gold and some white gllitter hearts.  I added white lace and gold string.  I also added white pearls and some gold gems.  Super fun Bridal shower card or...wedding card.

What I always wanted

My play is done and I now have a little more time on my hands.  However, my busy wedding season is about to begin.  I have a wedding every weekend in August and almost every weekend in September.  I feel like I've been slacking this last couple of months on my card making!!  I decided this morning I need to make a card using a fun Rick St. Dennis image, since I am supposed to be making one card AT LEAST per week on his DT...

For this card I used the adorable Buddy and his Pet Plant.  This image can be found in the Zibbet shop (but it is currently down for "improvements").  I added some papers from Close To My Heart and a sentiment from Create With TLC.  I used a couple of dies for the flourish and a hole punch for the blue circles.  I added some Glossy Accents over the plant's and the boy's eyes.  I followed the current sketch for Sunday Sketch & Stamp.
