Feb Club Card

I'm back!  We had two snow days and the boys loved it!  Well, I loved it too.  I am behind schedule though.  Even though the weather wasn't the best we made it to Aunt Janet's funeral three hours away from home.  The roads weren't too bad.  The temps were bitter cold, but the service was beautiful and it was nice to see family we hadn't see in a while.  We wish it would have been under different circumstances.  Aunt Janet is at peace now and not suffering any more.  Now, she is in God's hands.

I have club meetings this Friday and next Tuesday, so I need to get on the ball and decide what we are going to make.  I decided we haven't made a sympathy card in a while and I need to replenish my stash.  I got the inspiration for this card from the Mojo Monday sketch here.  In addition, I used the new Thanks for Caring set from the occasions mini.  Oh, such a pretty set.


I haven't made a round card is such a long time.  I should make them more, because they are so much fun.  I used my new scallop circle Big Shot die.  Oh, this die is awesome!  


Materials used are stampin’ up! Unless noted
Stamps: thanks for caring
Paper: greenhouse gala, baja breeze, real red, so saffron
Ink: baja breeze, real red
Accessories: scallop circle big shot die, lots of tags sizzlits, white gel pen, daffodil 1/8" taffeta ribbon, dimensionals
Punches: 2 x 1 3/8" oval

Just a note....I have been keeping up on my 365 project so far.  Whew!  I think that is going to be my scrapbooking this year.

Good News!  I am almost done with my Basic Brayer 101 online stamping class I will be offering at Paper Craft Planet.  I just need to run a test on it and I will start marketing the class.  Soon very soon!

Glad you were able to make it there and back safely. Such a lovely card!

Oh I'm happy to hear you made it to and from safely. And that you were able to be with family at this difficult time.

Your card is very pretty, Kim. Sympathy cards are so hard and yours strikes a great balance between pretty and appropriate. Well done!

Hope you get all caught up in time for your class today!

I am glad that you and your family were able to attend the services for your Aunt Janet. And I am glad that you all made it home safely.

Your card is so very pretty! I've not made a round card yet. But I am inspired by yours.

I'm excited about your upcoming Brayer class.
