I made this card for a friend of mine who lost her Grandfather, and who she and her family were quite close too.

As you can see, I am enjoying using the same technique I used in my previous card. I had not made a sympathy card before and was a bit intimidated with the idea, but I think it came out quite nice.

LOL! Can you believe it? I made a card (completed) before breakfast. I know, I know, it is a simple card. But that was the point. I was bloghopping this morning as I was going through my email and I came across this challenge on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog, who have a challenge to make a CAS card. So I decided to make it right away.

The card is quite simple. The detail I like about it is the oval in the middle of the cuttlebugged paper. I cannot take credit for this. It is something I learned from my friend Kerry. Kerry learned this from her friend Patty. But here is the way it is done. You need an oval negative to achieve this. I used a paper frame I found at the dollar store. I separated the front from the back of the frame. For my cuttlebug sandwich I used the A plate, added the cuttlebug folder with paper and then the oval negative over it placed on the spot where you don't want the cuttlebug folder to show, and last the C plate.
This is how it worked for me as the oval negative is quite thick. You can probably find different ways to do this. Kerry used 2 layers of cardstock out of which she had cut the oval. Patty used a wooden frame.

Thank you for dropping by!

And I mean FINALLY I am able to log into my blog!! I was not able to sign into my blog for quite awhile. For some strange reason I was not able to normally sign in, so I have finally found an unusual way of signing in and I can post again!! YEAY!!!
And yes, I have created something!

This card is almost a total CASE of Cheryl Rowley's card here. I was browsing through SCS to find inspiration because I was not coming up with something on my own. (I know that is quite sad) I have been admiring Cheryl's creations for quite awhile already, so when I saw this card I knew what to make.

I used my favorite SU DP Parizian Breeze. So sorry it's not in the new catty!! It is layered on Baja Breeze and Choc. Chip.
I colored Tilda with Copics. Used the Nestabilities, Labels 4 and sponged it with Close to Cocoa. The ribbon was a remnant I took off of a notepad I had lying around.

Thanks for coming by.
