I really dislike needing sympathy cards, but I know that letting someone know I am thinking of them hopefully will add a bright spot to their day. I have had this sentiment from Sparkle n Sprinkle for a number of years and I am happy to be able to put it in the spotlight with this sketch. I used the fishnet background from MFT along with a die cut stamped with a stamp from them as well. I have had the butterfly die cut for a long time and I am not sure where it comes from. I used a Wink of Stella to add a little shine and some CTMH sparkles.

I needed a masculine card for one of the golfers and this sketch fit the bill. I just love the plaid builder and think I am getting better at using it. The burlap background stamp is the perfect compliment. I used Nightshift blue,Kraft and Jellybean green for my color palate on Primitive cream cardstock. I think it is a keeper!

I stamped the background in versamark and embossed with sparkle embossing powder. Then I cut into strips and mounted onto dark paper. The button is actually a MFT die-namics. I finished the top with some crocheted lace and purple bling!

I love the angle of the paper and was so excited when MFT came out with Die-namics to make the design easier. I have a friend who just underwent some serious surgery and I am hoping this will cheer her up. I used patterned paper from MME, but all the rest is from MFT.

I went to a class this week on how to color black. This cat was one of our examples. I thought he was so cute and turned out pretty well in the coloring department as well. I'm just about finished with the Halloween cards, but I thought the doodlebug "Halloween Parade" had some paper that went so well with this graphic that I couldn't resist making one more! I did rotate the sketch to allow for the vertical placement of the cat!

I am not usually a fan of square cards because they are difficult to mail, but I have a friend who is celebrating a birthday and I am able to hand her a card. She enjoys gardening and I think this will really suit her. I think all of the components are from MFT.
