We are so sorry ...
I didn't have any sympathy cards in my stash and thought I should make a few. Well, I have made one! I don't know why I was thinking of sympathy cards other than the fact that I only have one more week of vacation before heading back to work for another school year. Kids start August 15 and I start August 1. Boy where did the summer go? Oh I know it is still in full swing but it is going to have to carry on without me. Boo hoo.
We got the deck sealed last weekend and boy was it hot. This weekend isn't going to be much better if any so I guess it was wise that we didn't postpone it. We would like to put one more coat on the floor. That should not take any time at all though. We just have to find a day where rain is not predicted for a couple of days.
Ok, now for the card. The designer paper is from Ancestry.com and is bronzed paper green decortative. Isn't it pretty? The image is from Penny Black and I used a stamp from my friend Vicki when we were in Des Moines earlier this summer. I have since ordered the stamp. I really love it. I colored the butterflies with my Copic markers and then Stickled them. The topaz rhinestones are Martha Stewart and the other small gold stones were from my stash. I cut it out with my Nesties and chalked the edges. I don't think that shows up too well.
Until next time... Happy trails to you
