With Sympathy

Pat took Ryan and a few friends to the Reds' baseball game for his birthday last night so after I put the little boys in bed for the night, I had some time in the craft room to myself.

Unfortunately, I needed to make a few more sympathy cards that will be sent out today.

The first one I followed the Clean & Simple challenge. I say this every week, but I really look forward to these challenges.  Lots of inspiration!
The second one is for Keesh's Inkspiration Challenge.  I love these challenges too...but boy and am I not sure about the colors these week!  The card turned out okay, but it is not one of my favorites!  My favorite part of the card is the Jenni Bowlin pearl embellishment! For the flower, I stamped PTI Fancy Flourish on Whisper White cardstock and then used my PTI dies to cut them out.
Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday...we're hitting the baseball fields and then I'm off to see my niece and her boyfriend all dressed up for prom!

Ingredients:  Stampin' Up Of the Earth Stamps; PRI Beyond Basic Borders Stamps, Daily Design Sentiments and Fancy Flourishes; SU Old Olive, Real Red, Apricot Appeal, Sage Shadow; SU Whisper White, Basic Gray, Apricot Appeal, Old Olive, Real Red Paper; SU Old Olive Ribbon; Jenni Bowlin' Pearl Embellishments


  1. Your cards are very pretty! Not too much fun to make sympathy cards :( You did a really beautiful job on both!

  2. Very nice cards. I actually like the one you weren't sure of the best.

  3. These are both lovely but I'm smitten with the red card. I love how you were able to use red but make it so very calming, perfect for what you need it for.

  4. Both cards are very pretty! Great job with FTL90!


  5. Beautiful cards, the colors on the second card really do look wonderful together! :-)

  6. these are both beautiful cards Lynn, love the bright red in the first! :)

  7. Gorgeous Lynn!! I love the pearls in the centre of your flower and the vines in the background too! THanks so much for playing this week! Love Keesh x
