Keeping It Simple

A simple sympathy card is sometimes best. Even better is using things you already have on hand and using up your scraps. I also wanted a more manly card, so that was achieved with my color choices.

Specs on the card

  • Base is brown cardstock, Pat Catans 12 cents/sheet.
  • Basket weave pattern paper, most likely from a Slab or stack, not sure.
  • Ribbon from the $1 Spot at Target.
  • Two green cardstock scraps from my stash.
  • Stamped images were from a friend! We were swapping stampies!


Just to catch up a bit on life in general... over the weekend we thought that my Grandmother was on her deathbed, but that woman has more lives than a cat! Thursday she was admitted to the hospital, unresponsive, with pneumonia and kidney failure, pupils fixed. Mom called the far flung family to come to the hospital. They were considering hospice and by Saturday she had rallied and was conscious and yelling at everyone, go figure! They are not sure if they will attempt her next hip replacement tomorrow or not.


We are cropping on Friday evening at Berkey Church of the Brethren, 6 PM to 11 PM. The goodie is a really nice one and the food is always YUM! Hope to see you all there! I will have a make and take using the goodie!


Saturday is the Speaking of Women's Health event at your local Wal-mart. I will be at mine doing Papercrafting demos from 10-2.


We have started to get registrations for the Spring Camp Crop! If you need info contact me and I will send you the flyer!

Take care!
