Stamp Simply #128 - With Sympathy



Today's Stamp Simply challenge from Sharon Johnson is one that I'm sure everyone can join in on and find very useful. We always need to have a stash of sympathy cards on hand, right? So today's challenge is just that.... create a sympathy card. Hopefully it'll just be one to add to your stash and not for an immediate need.

For me personally, I never seem to have a stash of cards that are appropriate for my immediate need. So usually when I need a sympathy card, it ends up being something quick so that's what I did for today. It's simply elegant in black and white with the addition of some dry embossing, and the embossed image and sentiment. This black ribbon lends the perfect finishing touch. A white insert inside (which I remembered to do after taking my photo!) and the card is ready for my stash! Yay.... I'm ever so slightly ahead of the game! Now, hopefully I won't need this anytime soon!
Today marks our last day with the ever-sweet Deb Neerman as our Guest Designer, so be sure and stop by her blog to see her wonderful creation! And Sharon has a wonderfully unique sympathy card for you to see on her blog.

We also bid a sad farewell today to the incredibly talented Julie Koerber! *sniff, sniff* Julie has been a fabulous part of the Stamp Simply team and is such a super sweet friend! But she has her hands full lately and has decided to step down from the team! She will be sorely missed (but I know where to find her!)

My Stamp Simpy sisters have more inspriration for you today, too...


I hope you have a fabulous Friday! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
