Deepest Sympthy

Hey all my crafty friends! 

The time had come again for me to make a sympathy card.  One of my dear friends has just lost a cousin to Leukemia.  He was in his twenties (way too young) and had battled bravely for years with this ugly disease.  I pray that he is resting in peace, in the arms of an angel now that his fight is over.

I struggled with how to construct this card; what would be appropriate.  I decided upon this Magnolia stamp and colored her in muted tones.

The papers are from the My Minds Eye collection called Lost and Found - Union Square.  I cut out some hearts on my Cricut Expression and created a faux banner in the corner complete with some American Crafts twine.  The shadow cuts were placed in the opposite corners.  I also used a new Spellbinders die that I received from a good friend of mine.  The cabbage roses are from the Spare Parts 3D Brown Paper Flower assortment.  The sentiment stamp in the bottom corner is from Taylored Expressions and was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek.  Tell those you love that you love and hug them tightly as often as possible.

Beach Day Beautiful

Hey folks!

Popping in today to share a card I created for my daughter's friend using this adorable yet sassy girl from The Greeting Farm!  She is part of the Cheeky collection and her name is Cheeky Beach.  You can find this doll in the TGF store by clicking here!

Their monthly challenge this month is to use Red, White and Blue.  Mission accomplished!

I've colored up this doll face with Copics and added some Yellow Stickles to the flower center in her hair.  The papers are a mix of the Summer Fresh collection from Simple Stories and Recollections cardstock.  I've added some cheesecloth behind her for a little beachy texture.  The seashell and anchor die cuts are from the Momenta 6 piece die cut collection featuring all sorts of beachy goodness!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
