The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Cherish the Memories Sympathy Card Collection

 Hello Blogging friends...
I have posted today two cards from my Sympathy  Collection.  Using the beautifully cool green and aqua colors of this KaiserCraft pattern paper, I put together two sympathy cards that I hope shows my belief that we should celebrate the memory of the person who has passed celebrating their life by showing life on my cards, cards that I send to loved ones expressing sympathy for their loss.  To express how I feel I used the sentiments from Just Rite's Sympathy Nested Sentiments and Verse on the inside of the card and a Sentiment from Cherish the Memories on the sentiment labels on the front.  I used Spellbinders Tags 3 to enhance the front and Martha Stewart's Punch Around the Page punches to begin building the intricate layers to enhance the sentiments.  I layered with Spellbinders Lacey Squares, then Beaded Circles and on top of that the fancy tags with sentiments.  I chose then to use Spellbinders Fancy butterflies and Martha Stewart punched mini butterflies as fancy embellishments to top the cards off.  All these products and more can be found at OC Scrapbookers online webstore -- just inquire with Deb for anything that you cannot see onsite.  Right now she has a special on Copic markers, a pre-order special --- go on over and take a look at what is new and take advantage of the Copic preorder special....  Another post coming out shortly  my friends.
