Sympathy Cards no fun to Create

Colorful card
Black white version
Flowers and Navy and White

The above cards are from a old stamp set, real old.  That is why you see me say get this stamp set now, before retired and not sold anymore.  Yes, life constantly changes.

One good thing, basic black, basic white and night of navy are my go to colors.  The stampin Up! Card stock is 80 pound weight, this in turns creates the best cards you are happy to create and give.

Arthritis and Creating

Yes, I have Osteoartritis but I still am trying to enjoy life and bring love to others. Some days it is not good, some days good. I create cards, lots of cards. I am trying to use my arthiritc hands everyday, yes, I fumble, I drop and sometimes cry.

I have to do things in spurts, no marathon creating. My life has changed greatly. No fun but I have to deal with it cause there is no cure.

The above card is so easy and fun. It is from the Sentimental Bundle.

I have to watch my pennies and I was blessed with the lovely paper in a sample pack that you get when you join Stampin Up during celebration.
