Sympathy Card

Sadly, I had to make my first sympathy card. Jared's stepmother's mother passed away. :(
No matter how long and good a life a person has lived, we can't help but miss them and wish they could stay even longer. I know a card doesn't make life easier, but it's a gesture that his father and stepmother are in our thoughts, so I hope it brings at least a minimal amount of comfort. They are very loved.

In this card:
Card stock - Soft Sky (base), River Rock and White
Stamps - SU! Baroque Motifs, SU! Define Your Life, SU! Garden Silhouettes (retired)

Froggy Swap

I finished my froggy themed card, finally! I was getting worried, because I couldn't figure out how to finish it exactly. So here it is:

I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I ran the card base through Nicole and KC's Cuttlebug - which is an awesome tool by the way! You use it to cut a shape, emboss a shape, or cut then emboss shapes with the inspired designs available exclusively with Cuttlebug cutting and embossing dies. Then I used Nicole's Lily Pad roller and colored it and cut out a section. I used water color techniques and I finished off the lilies with Crystal Effects which is officially my favorite add on - it's so shiny and soft.

In this card:
Card stock - Wasabi Green (base), Brilliant Blue, Yo Yo Yellow and White
Stamps - SU! Lily Pad, SU! Very Punny (retired), Hero Arts ?
