Hello … bonjour … hope you’ve been finding some time to create this week! We start a new challenge at Time Out this morning … and this fortnight we have a theme for you … Sympathy, with an optional twist of Distressing (using Distress Inks, distressed edges, torn paper etc). I chose not to twist this time around …
I find it difficult to make sympathy cards in advance … and prefer to make one only when needed … that way I’m thinking of and praying for the recipient and the family member or friend that they’ve lost as I’m creating. This card went to a wonderful friend earlier in the year, after the loss of a dear and truly special person in her life. It’s simply stamped and one layer … the flowers are from Papertrey and have enamel accent centres, the sentiment is from Hero Arts/Simon Says Stamp, and the little glossy accented heart is from Winnie & Walter. The scored lines ground the images.
Where will our theme take you … and will you go with our distressing twist? Whichever way you choose, we’d love to see what you create in our gallery. We’re sponsored this fortnight by Happy Little Stampers (thanks, Kylie), who are offering a $15 GC to a random twister. As usual, our overall winner, as voted for by the DT, will be invited to guest design with us in a future challenge. All the details are over at the Time Out blog … along with heaps of inspiration from our brilliant DT … and from our fabulously talented Guest Designer, Sue from Sue’s Card Craft. If, by some chance, you haven’t seen Sue’s gorgeous cards before, do pay her a visit … her blog is chock full of beautiful work! Even if you have, why not pop over, say hello, and enjoy a gentle meander through all the loveliness!
