Lindsay's Stamp Stuff - Leaf Prints Sympathy

Let me get the exciting news out of the way first. Mygrafico is having 40% off sale for today only. That includes all the product in the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff store on mygrafico. Now is the time to get the set you have been eyeing.
I recently had the need for another sympathy card. I decided to use Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Leaf Prints to keep it seasonal.

Although it looks black in the photo, the matting with the edge punch is chocolate brown. I used cork squares to add some interest and texture. The leaves were printed in brown and colored using Q-tips with ink pads.

Please stop by the rest of the DT to see what kind of goodies they have created this week. Lindsay will have a freebie for you on her blog. Be sure to stop at the store to check out all the new, fabby sets that are for sale.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
