Silhouette Sympathy

Ah, summer is almost over.  The kids go back to school next week, and it is definitely time.  They are often bored, and argue with each other.  That's when a parent knows it is time.  :D


Got a chance to play with two sets that needed some inking:  With Sympathy by Hero Arts, and Vintage Blue by Glitz Design.
I love the Victorian detailing of this border stamp.  It reminds me of Anna Griffin stamps, which I do adore.


Our visit with my mom last week was wonderful.  She took the best care of me, as only a mother can do.  We kept a busy pace each day, and now I am completely exhausted.  It was more activity than I've seen in the last two months since surgery.  Since I am still on crutches and a boot, Mom waited on me quite a bit.  I relished every moment. (insert happy smile here)

How wonderful it must have been to have your Mom take care of you! Nothing like it!

I love Kraft and paired with black or white always leads to perfectly gorgeous cards (just like all your cards), but this has a beautiful elegance to it!

Beautiful! The ideal sympathy card. I'm so glad to hear you and your Mom had such a good time together. After so long apart you had to pack a lot into your too short visit.
