Sharing in Sorrow

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you all are enjoying your April, can't believe it is almost over!  I'm back in Minneapolis again and of course they are calling for snow again tonight!  I seriously think that is the way Minnesota greets me when I come up here.  At least the snow doesn't last long and warmer weather is definitely on its way!

I'd like to share with you a very simple but nice Sympathy card. These are one kind of cards that I hate to make but yet, unfortunately, we seem to need the most. I used "Simply Sympathy" stamp set along with the "tranquil tree" die. 


The paper collection is We R Memory Keepers, "Country Livin'". Thank you for stopping by and checking out my card. 

Blessings and Hope...

AJVD Get Well Soon

Happy Wednesday AJVD fans!  Today I want to share with you a CHEERY get well card.  Lately, I have had lots of friends and family going through a variety of different illnesses and it's always nice to just send a little note to lift them up.  Who wouldn't enjoy getting this BRIGHT card?  I used the AJVD Happy Healing Stamp Set, which is just perfect for making that special card for someone sick or fighting an illness.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card today.  Please feel free to stop by my blog and check out my other creations, Mistyical Creations!

Green Thanks!

Happy Wednesday! I'm here with a card of Thanks that is FULL of GREEN!! 
 

This was a FUN challenge and one that I really wasn't sure what I was going to create.  I knew I didn't want just plain green cardstock, so I started digging to see what I had.  I happened to find some GREEN pattern paper that when good together, and found the green glitter paper.  So I just began to play and I think it turned out better than planned!  My favorite part of it...the GLITTER paper...I think it makes the card just pop.  PLUS....you could say I even got a little GREEN with the die cuts as I did use the EMERALD Backdrop Die Set too!  How fun is that?!?!  If you haven't used the Daisy Die Set, you seriously need to.  This has quickly become one of my favorite dies that we have.  I love the flowers and use them on everything! 
 
Thank you so much for stopping and looking. 
 
Blessings & Hope...

A Little Spring...

Only 15 days and SPRING will be HERE!  Well, I am sure it will end up happening in some parts of the country, just not sure if it will be EVERYWHERE but we can at least DREAM!  So with that being said, I think it is time we start getting ready for the BRIGHT colors and WARMER weather!  I know I am definitely ready for FLIP FLOPS and CAPRI'S...
 
Today, I am hoping to bring a little Spring your way!  I absolutely LOVE the way this card turned out and it just makes me SMILE...with the polka dots, chevrons, stripes and of course the butterfly!  Who wouldn't love to have this little butterfly find his way to their home?!?!  This collection of paper is from Moxxie's "Easter-rific" Collection and once again A Jillian Vance Stamps, go PERFECT with this collection!  I have been enjoying this AWESOME "Spring in Bloom" stamp set!
 
 
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful and warm day...ok, well maybe in front of the fireplace, if you aren't lucky to live where it is warm!
 
Blessings & Hope...

With Sympathy...Pet

Every year there are many animals that are abused and unfortunately these animals aren't able to speak for themselves.  So in honor of these animals, February 16-22, is National Justice for Animals Week...a week dedicated to raising awareness about how to report animal abuse and how to work locally with to strengthen animal protection laws and enforcement. 
 
Many of us have "furry friends" who are considered our "kids"!  In our house, it is RULED by 2 cats, Gizzy and Louie, whom both have such different personalities and we can't imagine life without either one of them.  Some days they get along great and other days not so well...just like brothers and sisters!  Even on those days when they aren't getting along, I know that if something happened to one of them, the other one would be lost.
 
Today I am sharing this "Pet Sympathy" card that I created in honor of all those animals who have been abused and weren't able to have a loving home.
 
 
 
 
This card was inspired by a tutorial that I had found on Operation Write Home.  This is one of those designs that looks complicated, but really it isn't and it is sure to become one of your favorites!
 
Card Recipe:
Reminisce "It's A Dog Life" paper collection
Rich Cocoa Memento ink pad
Chestnut Roan cats eye
Diamond stickles
brown cardstock, blue cardstock, cream cardstock, button, & twine
 
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my creations!
 
Blessings & Hope...
