With Sympathy {and SU sets for sale}

Happy mid way day.  We're half way through the week and I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  We don't have too much going on other than being in our second week of baseball and first week of soccer practices.  I'm hoping the warmer weather hurries up and arrives!  On Monday's Clean & Simple class, Jennifer Rsaza had a video on water coloring.  I'm late to the trend, but thought I would keep it simple and emboss an image and then water color it with distress inks.  Of course, I had to play along with Virginia's amazing Virginia's View challenge too.  I had fun with the gold embossing powder with this one and used three different colors of distress ink to create my card.

I hope your doing great on this mid way day!  I also wanted to let you know I updated my stamps for sale page.  My dear friend Katie is moving and she's selling several Stampin' Up sets if you'd like to take a peak and pop her an email.

  16. The page with the stamp sets says it was last updated in June of 2013. Is that right?
