sympathy continues…

With Sympathy

sympathyyso our need for sympathy cards continues…one of my childhood friends mother-in-law died.  We’ve become friends with his wife too so our sympathies go out to her and her family.  It’s so hard to lose a parent.

We are frantically working to get ready for two shows and to go on the road soon.  We would like to be out Friday morning but it’s looking more like we won’t get out of here until Saturday am.  Too many things that need to be done before we go…like closing a pool and different things that can’t be left.  The cold has arrived!  I even broke out the heavy winter coat.

Here is the second phase of what we do.  The first we told you about before the “pulling”  next comes

photo 1-2pulling all the boards and putting the rubber on them.  We love our purple rubber.  It absorbs ink and transfers the ink so well.  Which is exactly what it’s job is!  Well I had better get back to work…this is what my garage look like right now….

garageso if we are going to get the cars in before we leave…there is a lot to do 🙂

With Sympathy

old book 1 old book 2I took two pictures of this card…not sure which is better so posted both!

I picked up an old book at Goodwill the other day and have been making cards with it.  I hope you like them!  I actually have really enjoyed using them.  I think they look great.  A little different than my usual style but it’s good to break out of your shell!

Getting ready to paint the studio this week…trying to pick out colors…have a few picked out one is called Quiet Moments and another Harmonious…thought I could use a little help with those two things!
