Monochromatic Sympathy & More

First of all, a warm welcome to all of my new subscribers!  Thank you so much for signing up.  It makes me happy that people like my stuff and want to see more.  :)

Despite my creativity leaving me high and dry today, I managed to pull off a card that looks halfway decent.
My sympathy card stash ran out, and I wanted to make a bunch relatively quickly.  I already had my Teeny Tiny Wishes and Baroque Motifs sets by SU out on the table, so I used them both.

I kept the color scheme monochromatic so I could enter in Caardvarks' Final Challenge.  Sadly, they are closing up shop.  We'll miss you!

Happy News x 3:

  • My Plum Christmas card was a winner at Flourishes' Bring Back Beautiful challenge for November!  I now have a new badge at the top of my blog (it's hanging over the edge and I'm not sure how to fix that; darn!).

  • Although I did not make it to the Final 3 in the Splitcoast Clean and Simple Winter Design Team Search, I was chosen as a Guest Designer.  My week comes up at the end of January 2011.   That sounds like fun!
  • And finally, I am excited that my blog - which is a little over 6 months old - now has over 10,000 hits!  Whoo hoo -  I feel Blog Candy coming!  Keep watching....
Happy Stamping,

Stamps:  Baroque Motifs, Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU)
Paper:  Night of Navy textured cardstock, Night of Navy dsp, Whisper White
Ink:  Night of Navy, Basic Black
Other:  pearls, Stampamajig

Beautiful sympathy card and congrats on the win with the wonderful snowflake card. Wish I could help you with the award that is hanging over...but I don't have a clue. Guess you tried deleting and posting again. Oh well, it's just great to have it.
