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.

Happy Thanksgiving

Rejoicing in thankfullness. Yes, even in these trying times. Our family has faced much, but our new life is pressing on. I pray this finds you fine and doing what you love.

I made a Thanksgiving card for special people in my life. I used old stamps, yep, real old, 1995 and 1996. Companies that are no longer in business.

I did use the Stampin’ Up! ink, love their colors and ink, it is easy to clean off with just water…water soluable. Safe, non-toxic.

Cinnamon Cider is the color I used, it its a limited ink color for 2020-2022, it is my favorite right now with intense brown but not dark. I did a water color wash on water color paper…simple but gives a nice look.

I am card making and sending but as for sales and Stampin’ Up! products, they are dead in the water. I no longer have my store to order on line, they charge $12.95 a month and I have had no sales in the passed 8 months. That would be $155.00 for a year, a waste of money cause no one orders and we have no income right now. I will continue on and if you are interested in ordering you need to contact my by email. My heart aches that life changes but it could be worse.

Hugs. Enjoy this special time, no matter what.

HAPPY WORLD CARDMAKING DAY!

The big day is here! Hurray! We hope everyone has a great World Card Making Day!. And remember, once we finish creating our beautiful cards, let’s all be sure to send them off with a handwritten message to brighten someone’s day! In fact, Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 goal is to give away 60,000 cards worldwide, so if I and all demonstrators send at least two cards to someone who could use a little sunshine, we can easily reach and even exceed that goal.

To extend one more challenge, should you choose to accept it. That is—give one of your handmade cards to a professional to show appreciation for their hard work. That person could be a store clerk, an animal shelter worker, a nurse—or the UPS delivery person. Are you in? Let’s smash that 60,000 goal! #makeacardsendacard

Measurement suggestion for inch-users:
