Another Sympathy Card


This is the sixth sympathy card I have needed in two weeks!  But it gave me a chance to use a Waltzingmouse set that hasn’t seen ink in a long while!


I’m not very good at making cards with scenery on them, and although I love the tree and the hills, I am not sure about the house in the background.  It looks a little crooked in my photo but it is straight on the card!  Anyway, the hills are masked and sponged with Lucky Limeade and Always Artichoke on a Baja Breeze card; the tree was stamped in Chocolate Chip.  The house was stamped, trimmed to fit the hills and glued on separately, then I stamped the tree branch over it again with my Stamp-a-ma-jig….very, very carefully!  A simple sentiment and ribbon/button trim finished it off.   I really love the effect of this and was happy that I tried to make a “scene”!  Thanks for visiting today!  Be sure to come back shortly for the posting of my blog candy winner!

Ohhhh, Leanne, this is wonderful! I love primitive art (actually most of the artwork in my house is this genre) and your card makes such a touching and beautiful sympathy card. It is beautiful.

Speaking of beautiful, so is Miss Cassidy having a snack with Grampa!
