Unfortunately, I have made quite a few sympathy cards lately. While it is hard to make these cards at any time, I just cannot make them in advance. I always make them when I need them. This is a 6 x 6 square card. I used my CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge for the frame and leaves. I cut the leaves on white paper and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. The DPs are from my stash. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart stamp which I fussy cut. The sentiment is a retired CTMH stamp. (Unfortunately, there is a glare on the right side of the card which I didn't realize until just now.)
I stopped entering challenges earlier this year, in May or so. I also took a break from visiting and commenting on blogs other than for my DT assignments. I was experiencing some personal issues, some health issues, and some artistic issues. I was generally discouraged and not enthusiastic about my cards. But I'm feeling a somewhat better now, and want to get back to challenges and my blog friends.
So I am entering these challenges: Craft Your Passion Challenges - Anything Goes; Simon Says Monday Challenge - Stamp & Punch/Die Cut; Creative Moments - Anything Goes, and Simply Papercraft Challenge - Anything Goes.
The key to life is accepting challenges. Once someone stops doing this, he's dead.”
