Hello everyone. I hope your weekend was wonderful and you had a chance to do something CRAFTY!
I did. I was able to work on some Sympathy Cards on Sunday afternoon. A woman at church heads up a Prayer, Care and Visitation outreach and occasionally needs Sympathy and Get Well cards. So I was on a mission to bless the ministry with some.
This was a little bit of a challenge for me, since I wanted to keep them one layered. As most of use know, too many layers and embellishments cost more to mail. I certainly wanted to make them go regular 1st. Class Mail to keep the cost down. I think I succeeded. What do you think?
The cards I'm posting today are Sympathy cards. I will bee making another 4 or more as the weeks go by. I did use "Thinking of You" on several of them, but they will have a sympathy sentiment inside.
|I actually used Mossy Meadow ink on the tree and sentiment, but it did not show up. :0(|
|The flowers were colored using Pool Party ink and a Blender Pen|
|I used some faux "wink of stella" on the flowers and foliage.|
|I used the one of the Gorgeous Grunge stamps for the splatter.|
That's about it for today. I'm going to hopefully, create some Get Well cards today so I can hand them off tomorrow to Mona the coordinator of the outreach.
A confession. I'm taking a big step of faith here giving these cards to Mona. I'm usually okay sending my family and some friends my cards, but I don't usually share them with people I don't know. It's a lack of confidence on my part as a crafter. I am getting more comfortable with it, though. ;0)
Have a great day and as usual, go do something CRAFTY!
