Guess this is almost the last day to post a Christmas in July card . . . maybe I should start Christmas in August?  I love Christmas time, thoughts of Christ and the reason for the season, fires in the fireplace, cold days and colder nights, sleeping under down blankets, everyone you meet in a loving, generous mood, the wonderful smells of cookies baking and cider on the stove.  I hope this card reminds you of winter and Christmas.  Remember, if you need any supplies, just click on the “Order Online” button and you will go directly to my online Stampin’ Up! store.  Take care and Happy Stampin!

Serene Silhouettes and Thoughts & Prayers stamp sets

Sympathy cards are never fun to make, but it can be really helpful to have one prepared, just in case.  I think the colors on this card lend themselves to a more somber card.   However, by just tweaking the color choices, this design could be used for that ever elusive masculine card.  To create the color blend, I sponged the lightest color first (in this case the Pink Pirouette) then, using a different sponge for each color, I added the two additional colors.  Be sure to blend, blend, blend.  Remember, you can always add color, but you can’t take color away.  Hope you give it a try.    Happy Stampin!
