I had to make some sympathy cards a while ago, at the time the sets were all current but Inspired by Nature has since retired. The image is one of the large ones from Inspired by Nature (111656)retired it was stamped in River Rock ink (126977) onto a piece of Naturals White card stock(102316), the sentiment is from the current set Love and Sympathy (w-122795 or c-122797) this was stamped in Soft Suede Ink(126798) onto a piece of Naturals White card stock(102316) then punched out with the Scallop Oval punch(119856). two more punches of the Scallop Oval punch in River Rock creates a layer behind the sentiment. This was all layered onto a piece of River Rock card stock then that was all layered onto a piece of Naturals White card stock(102316) that had been run through the Big Shot (113439) inside the Square Lattice Embossing Folder(119976) for some interest. This was again layered onto River Rock and finally the card base of Naturals White. A pretty butterfly from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit(118138) cut from River Rock card stock(108640) was added to the grass, I love butterflies for sympathy cards, I find them to give hope of something beyond.

I have been married to my best friend, Lonnie, for 32+ years, and together we have two adult sons, Sean and Jeremy and a grand daughter, Mia, who keeps us all on our toes even though she lives in Montreal.
I have always loved creating with my hands especially with needle and thread and more recently with papercrafts. I love the diversity of it all.
I signed up as a hobby demo with Stampin' Up in February/March of 2009 during Salebration. I really love the quality of the products.
