Another Day for Sympathy

Well...another loss of a friend's parent. A 
good friend of mine, that I haven't seen in over
40 years, let me know her mom passed away.
It's amazing how time can pass but not the 
affection a person feels towards friends that
have created good memories, including those
of parents. Jan's mom holds such a warm
spot in my heart and memories. Here is the 
card I mailed out today.
This is all about the fabulous paper and great
stamps from Crafter's Companion. I took 2
pieces of the pretty floral paper and cut out 
some flowers and raised them up for some 
lovely dimension. Sadly, the photo doesn't show
the lift but it turned out to be a great card. 
Stamped sentiment and complete. The inside
was some more layers of great papers, a
stamped sentiment, and a couple more cut flowers.

I'll be entering this card in the following challenge.

Sympathy Cards

It's always sad to make sympathy cards,
because I ONLY make them when I need
them. Boo hoo. Since I am in FL now I went
with two VERY simple cards. Two friends each
lost a parent recently, one mother and one father.
It doesn't matter the age, mental, or physical
condition of our parent, it's always a hole in
our hearts. So, these two cards took a blink
to make. My fave kind of card. A die cut 
sentiment from Crafter's Companion, and ribbon.
The cardstock makes it look like a lacy 
background. Sometimes paper is the key!
I'm entering these in the following challenges.

1901 is First PIP Challenge of 2019

Pammie's Inky Pinkies
Challenge 1901

Yippee! It's going to be a great year. I 
will say that I was SICK for more than 2 weeks
over Thanksgiving. In bed sick but I am back! So,
no matter how last year went, this year is a 
fresh slate. Let's make it amazing! 
Our sponsor is Star Stampz.
Here's my first card of the year
with a brand new sponsor!
This darling little image from Star Stampz was 
so much fun to color. I used Spectrum Noir
Sparkle pens for the flowers and dress while
I finished the coloring with Copic markers.
I raised the image with pop dots and some 
pretty ribbon. Finally the pretty background 
paper really added some pizzazz. A bit of 
layering and a sweet sentiment completed the card.

After a LONG 2 weeks of fighting a wicked virus,
I'm back...not feeling too ambitious yet but 
this image was perfect for a friend of mine. She is a 
crazy shoe person like me and the deal is, she lost her 
leg when we were in high school because of cancer. Her
strength and humor has always inspired me and her 
passion for shoes (or shoe) has been the inspiration for 
many of our shopping adventures through the years. We once
had a salesman at a high end department store convinced
she was a self made millionaire...buying shoes, needing
only one and making birdhouses out of the extras. Hehehe
We LAUGHED and LAUGHED after we left with her
expensive stilettos. Anyway, this image was colored
with Copic markers and the die cut shoes is from 
Crafter's Companion.

 This week's sponsor is Limited Runs Digital Stamps, where you can find digis to tickle anyone's fancy!
They are kindly offering 3 free digis for 
this week's winner! Go check them out now!

Sadly, I was unable to create a card this week as
I've been sick for over a week now. Even a visit to the
Emergency Room. Needless to say my Thanksgiving
was spent in bed. My super family took care of all the 
holiday cooking and celebrating for me. I have been 
hidden in my room since my return from the hospital.
Energy level is practically zero. It's been a very nasty
virus and it's still hanging on. I am first beginning to 
be a bit more mobile. I pray that each of you are enjoying
good health and finding time to create!

This image just tickled my fancy...perhaps it reminds
me of something I'd do with a couple of friends of mine.
Fall is a wonderful time of the year and the colors
always intrigue me. This image was colored using
Copic markers. I cut out and raised the leaf basket 
when I added it to my card. 
It's a card that certainly makes me smile.
