With Sympathy

Hello My Crafty Friends,
WOW! can you believe it's Friday and the long weekend is here??? Yippee.... I hope you all have some fun plans for the long weekend:)  We are staying local this labor weekend and will try to keep cool!!

On to my card for today, unfortunately I needed a Sympathy card and as we all know this type of cards are not the easiest to put together.  I had received a card from Michelle Halleen and I loved the simplicity of the sketch and so I thought I would use her sketch and add my own touch with the Field Flowers Stamp set.  Please stop by tomorrow as I have another card using this sketch!! 

Don't forget to check out all the Promotions HERE!!
A close up of the inking around Whisper White and a close up of the Field Flowers using our Stampin' markers: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and certainly Celery you can get them all HERE!

The beautiful paper is Comfort Cafe and goes PERFECT with Baja Breeze! As all of our Designer Series Paper, it always goes PERFECTLY with all our card stock, inks, ribbon and buttons!

Inside the card, the sentiments are from a retired stamp set.

On to my card for today, I used the beautiful stamp set Stippled Blossoms in Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder for the Dynamic Duos  challenge and used a sketch from Retro Sketches.  I just love this two colors together and with a pop of white, makes for a lovely card.  Thank you for visiting today my friends!!

A Cupcake for your Birthday!!

Hello My Crafty Friends,
Happy Tuesday!! My week is off to a busy one with yesterday being my son's first soccer practice.  He was so AWESOME and fast, such a cutie!  I'm so nervous for his FIRST day of SCHOOL today!  Do you all get nervous for your kiddos???  

This year for his special first day of school breakfast, he requested BACON, eggs and toast.  You see bacon is not something we eat very often and he knows that mom will comply with his wish for the first day of school breakfast!!  

OK so for today's card I thought I would dust off my cupcake builder punch and the Petite Pennants builder punch and create a birthday card.  I always seem to need birthday cards and I always gravitate towards birthday cards to add to my stash! 

The white background I embossed using the Lacy Brocade Impressions Folder which you can get HERE. I also used the Itty Bitty Shape punches for the end of the banner.
I used the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the Itty Bitty banners dies using the Polka Dots Parade Designer Paper and some of the "NEW" In Colors, Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit you can find these colors and punches over at my store HERE!
Stampin' Up! Supplies for this Card
Stamps- Best Dad Ever,  Inks- Primrose Petals
Paper- Polka Dots Parade DSP, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Daffodil Delight,
