First, let me apologize.  I wrote a post that was suppose to appear on my blog yesterday morning.  Much to my dismay, it did not.  The question for me – where did it go????  I had saved drafts along the way but nothing exists from that post.  What's a girl to do?  Write another one!

When I had a few minutes free from caring for my husband (the one with the hip replacememnt) – guess I better add, and my only one, I did a little web surfing.  I found a card that I liked a lot on  So, I recreated an exact replica of her card before changing it up.

Petite Petals Bday

I liked many things about this card.  It is definitely bright and cheerful and it is different.

And, I adore the Petite Petals Stamp Set & Punch so it is a pretty safe bet that if a card uses them, then I will like it.  The Sentiment is from the Hostess Set Simply Sketched that you can earn free.

Like many of you, I needed Sympathy Cards.  Switching the color combo and the sentiment changed the mood of the card.

Marina Mist paired with Basic Black has always been a good combo in my mind.  I think it is elegant and yet somber.

But, I also wanted a more feminie version of the card.  Again a change of color did the trick.  Rose Red paired with Basic Black gave me the look I wanted.

The stamp set Gorgeous Grunge added a a bit of dimension on the Whisper White in preparation for the Petite Petals floweres.

These are easy to mass produce.  After completeing 6 of each color combo, I finally feel prepared with sympathy cards.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  If you need any of the supplies used on my card today, just click on the picture of the item to be taken directly to my Online Store.
