2021 Releases, Dull Glossy Paper, With Sympathy

A sympathy card today. I love these flowers and bees! Can you tell? This is a good card for mailing because it is flat and will fit into a regular envelope nicely. The words can easily be changed to fit other occasions too. Links are below!

Stamps: F255 Our Thoughts, EE85 Single Sunflower w Bee Med, CC98 Single Sunflower w Bee Small

Dull Glossy Paper, With Sympathy

Sometimes a sympathy card is needed unexpectedly. This one came together very quickly. We used dull glossy paper again so did allow for time to dry before coloring the flowers but still didn’t take long. The grass under the flower was created with a marker. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

Stamps: F276 Blessed Mourn, GG47 Hollyhock Lg

KB here, blogging for Beth since they are driving back to Wisconsin this afternoon. Earlier, the question of how I keep my mat so clean came up and it is simply baby wipes (the mat was fairly new too which helps). I think I bought this little pack for $1 at Target a couple months ago. Photo Feb 12, 4 00 18 PMSpeaking of cleaning, I was getting frustrated with my unmounted stamps and have been trying to figure out a good way to organize them. I have a binder, a bucket, and a rolodex. I’m still not sure which works best but today at Target, in the dollar section near the entrance, I found some containers which might work nice.

These are the containers I found. Photo Feb 12, 2 32 05 PM

This is what my bucket looked like before.

This is kind of how it looks now.

The larger stamps don’t fit in any of the containers but I think they will work better in the binder anyway. If anyone has a good suggestion or something that works for them, we are all ears (or eyes since we will probably be reading your responses)! Happy Thursday!
