Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone!

I have a project to share with you today.  Unfortunately, it happens to be a sympathy card.  I much prefer happy, whimsical cards and tend to really struggle on sympathy cards; which I bet I'm not alone on.

My husband's uncle passed away on Monday and my friend's grandmother passed away late last week, so I made these cards for the families.  I used different colors to give them a slightly different feel.

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up - Loving Memories set and the flower is from Penny Black - Chandelier Stamp.  Ink is Stampin' Up Close to Cocoa on the first card and VersaMagic Pumpkin Spice on the second.  The pattern paper is from DCWV the Amber Autumn Stack.

Sussex Lions Daze Parade

Hi Everyone!

I haven't been feeling very crafty lately so I don't have any projects to post :o(  but I have had lots to keep me busy.  Today my daughter was in another parade - the Sussex Lions Daze Parade.  After it being so hot for the last parade she was in, she definitely wasn't looking forward to this one.

Happy 4th of July!

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to wish you all a very happy 4th of July. 

I've included some pictures from one of our local parades my daughter was performing in.  She's on the Junior Prep competitive dance team at Brookfield Dance Academy in Brookfield, Wisconsin (a suburb of Milwaukee) and is loving every minute of it. 

I couldn't believe it was already 91 degrees outside and it was only 9AM.  The girls did such a great job even though they were all extremely sweaty.

I hope you and your families have a fun and safe Independence Day!
