Happy long weekend friends! I'm so excited for this weekend. My step son and his wife and baby are coming over and they are so much fun. Willow ( the baby ) is going to be 2 on September 15th. Those of you who remember the post of the day she was born are probably thinking like me. Its been two years already?!? How? Where did time go? Last night I was in full crafty mode. This happens when the house is clean ( thanks, babe) and I don't let myself sit to watch tv ( because lets face it once you watch tv for 10 minutes the next thing you know its been two hours. Well at least in my case). Anyways I went upstairs and started my card for the Speedy Fox and Friends Sympathy challenge. I looked through all my stamps from Marks Finest Papers, A Heinrich Co. and wouldn't you know it but I don't have one sympathy stamp in them . I'm slackin! Must do order today ( like how I slide an excuse to buy stamps in there. Please try this at home kids). I figured thinking of you would work in a sympathy card because that's the reason you send one, because you are thinking of the ones in mourning. I water colored the background using SU markers and a Aqua pen on watercolor paper. I then stamped the tree from Tree Greetings using versafine ink. The shadow of the tree was done by stamping the tree in old olive ( I didn't even clean the stamp before I re inked. GASP!!) and stamping it at a angle. Do you have any sympathy stamps? You should join our challenge and you could win a stamp set! Lets face it , who doesn't need more stamps??
