Happy Monday!

Okay, not really...i hate Monday's...if I could work part time, Monday would definitely be one of the days I would NOT work!

When I was looking for my mojo the other day I came across Stamping Bella's CURLY silhouette. You will find this one, and MANY other interesting stamps in the I AM stamps for journalling etc. section. Go take a peek, even if you don't journal, you might be surprised as to what you may find.

Anyhooo....I was in need of a sympathy card and I I love this stamp because of it's versatility, you can use it as a solid shadow stamp as I've done here, or emboss it like I have done in the past, or colour it with water based markers and spritz's really an amazing stamp.

This was the perfect card to get me back in the swing because of it's simplicity. And the simplicity was intentional because I don't really like my sympathy cards to be over the top with colour and/or interest. I stamped it in VersaMagic aspen mist, a real soft blue grey and the sentiment is embossed in silver. I've had that sentiment for YEARS, it's a wood mount and I think it is My Sentiments Exactly. The EP I used is JudiKins and it is the next best silver embossing powder I have found since PSX went out of business...I didn't love them for their stamps, but their embossing powders couldn't be beat. I also kept the card small, an A2 size so I could use my new sizzix embossing folder. SOOOO PRETTY!

After that was done I was ON A ROLL...pulled out the markers and coloured the afternoon away so lots to share this week!
