This sketch proved to take a lot of thought to make it into a sympathy card. I love the way it turned out. The difficulty for me was the accent strip on the side. Nothing seemed to work until I asked my husband's opinion. He liked the look of the simple stripe with white and just one color. I matched the stripe with the ink on the flower and it came together. I can't wait for the sympathy greetings to become available.


I have been needing way too many sympathy cards lately. I decided to see if sketches would help me to come up with some different ones. I wasn't sure about this one, but when I thought about adding some flowers but keeping the color scheme soft, it came together.

I was looking to make a fall card for our Pastor for appreciation Sunday. I love the combination of Persimmon, Pineapple and Biscotti. They really give a warm, fall feeling.

Wedding Card

We attended a wedding over the weekend of some wonderful people. They asked that no presents be given, so I thought a special card was called for. It is a design from Dreaming Tree. I used sentiments from MFT and some gems for accents I think they will like it.

I attended a wedding in Cincinnati the last weekend in June and then a week in MD visiting cousins. I made no cards and was ready to get back to my routine. I just love the layout of this sketch and decided on a monochromatic color scheme. I didn't start out to make a Christmas Card, but it just came together that way. My husband loves it and he is a rather traditional guy. I guess he likes "Blue Christmas" as well!
