Oh No! NOT Again!

Yes, again. I found myself in need of another sympathy card. I very much LOVE making cards but this "theme" of a card is extremely difficult for me. I originally got out my Stampin' Up! "Close as a Memory" set. I did use the wording from that set on the inside and outside but I opted to use the "Upsy Daisy" set for the flower part of the card. It had a soft serene look to it.

Oh I know, I managed to use that Rich Razzleberry again now didn't I? Can you tell I just LOVE that color??? It's so rich (as it states) and very pretty! How can you not keep your hands off it.

Anyway, back to the card. I did use the Cuttlebug "Dotted Swiss" folder for the background. I layered everything in Basic Black and Rich Razzleberry. I only cut each one down 1/8" less than the layer above it. I only wanted a sliver of color showing.

It was a very easy card to make. I was actually thinking of making several up ahead of time. Maybe Murphy's Law would apply there. If I have a bunch of Sympathy cards I won't need them!!! Hmm, now there's a thought!

I must run, I have a group of gals coming over tonight to stamp. It's another fun time for me!!! I enjoy these times SO much and I can't believe how fast the time flies too. UGH, the next thing you know it's time for the gals to go home! I guess we were just having TOO much fun!!! LOL

Did you notice that my blog has passed the 800,000 hits mark today? I will be posting blog candy early next week to celebrate!!! Thank you all for visiting my blog, it REALLY does mean a lot to me!!!

Happy Stamping,

I really like this card Wanda. I agree, the sentiment is not what you would want to choose but the card is just so nice. Sometimes you just do need those kinds of cards. I don't have the sympathy stamp set but I do have the daisy one and may have to give this a try. It is a very striking layout.
