Sympathy Card.

Hi girls, first of all I have some exciting news. I took part in a DT call today for a new challenge blog called Just Cute Bears and would you believe out of all the talented people who applied Ali chose me as one of her new DT. I'm so excited I can hardly type. I was so late posting my card for the DT call that it was in not long before the deadline this afternoon. Not because I didn't have it done just that for one reason or another I didn't get a photo in time to do it before today!! I'm really looking forward to the first challenge which will be next Sunday, 24th January. So put that on your calendars girls and I hope a lot of you will want to join us then. Everyone likes bears, don't they? You can use bears on your cards for anyone, male or female, old or young and for any occasion. So look out your beary images girls and get ready to take part next Sunday.

On to my card now! This evening I have made a couple of Sympathy cards. I'm just posting this one just now. The other one is different but it is proving difficult to photograph!! I'm quite pleased with this card which I made with a gorgeous new Hero Arts stamp. I've coloured the gorgeous flower with Promarkers in cool aqua and cocoa so it fits the Passion for Promarkers challenge. the flower is popped up on sticky pads for a bit of dimension though you wouldn't think it from my photo! The sentiment is also from Hero Arts - I love their cling stamps, they're so easy to use. I embossed a piece of card in my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder which is a bit of a favourite of mine. Then just a ribbon from my stash and some card candy from Craftwork Cards, which I coloured to match the flower. I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday.

The other card I made also uses the same colours but different Hero Arts stamps. I was inspired by a card that the supremely talented Kath made a while ago. Kath's work is fantastic and I never miss checking out her blog.

I'm off to calm down now. I think I will check out my new teamies blogs before I do my ironing. I suppose I will need to iron some clothes for tomorrow. Don't you just love Mondays? It's the only day I work a full day and it's also the busiest. I wouldn't mind if it was just the pensioners as most of them are lovely. It's the scroungers I find it difficult to deal with. The joys of working in the Post Office.
