No, I'm not making it that easy.  I told you my winner in the Creative EdVentures First Ever Blog Hop will be announced tomorrow.  (tee hee)  But, since you were nice enough to stop by, I do have a card to show you.

A long-time friend of my husband lost his dad last week.  The family knew it was coming, but, of course, it's always a difficult time, and so sad that it came just before Father's Day.

I wanted to use a soft color scheme for this card.  I'm happy with the pretty blue.  This photo shows the signature page on the inside:

Here is a full view of the inside of the card:

I was very pleased with the soft simplicity of the card front.  I used generic papers, and stamped the white cardstock to make my own background design paper.

I thought it might be hard to read the sentiment, so here's a closer view.

I mentioned the paper.  Here are the other ingredients:
Spellbinders dies: Plain and Scalloped Ovals, Fancy Tags and Lacy Squares
Stampin' Up! Baja Breeze ink

Thanks for visiting today, and don't forget to come back tomorrow to see if you're a winner!!!

Keep your creative genius flowing.....


  1. Wow, what a beautiful card. Sorry for the loss of your hubby's friend dad, but this is a very comforting card. He will really appreciate it.

  2. Very pretty card for a very difficult time. I think sympathy cards are the hardest to make...yours is wonderful!

  3. Very well done mom. Another beautiful card as always. Unfortunately, another one for a bittersweet occasion.

  4. A beautiful card! I LOVE the fabulous stamping to create background paper! I wish it could've been for another reason, but this is gorgeous! Thanks for joining our DT at HOC--good luck! Mynn, Owner HOC Challenge
