Hopeful Thoughts Stamp Class....

Stamp Classes started back today. The Sun was shining!

It was lovely to be back crafting. We made these sympathy cards today using the Hopeful Thoughts stamp set. It's hard to make these sort of cards at the best of times and they need to be sent or given straight away, so I decided to keep things very simple.

I used Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Old Olive for my colour combination. The papers are from the paper stacks, Oh! so useful.
Included in the instructions is a Tissue Box cover decorated with the tree and the Vine Blossom Wheel. The leaves on the wheel blend nicely with the leaves on the tree and blossom in this set.
We have been ripping out our kitchen, so its been a real mess here. That's what happens when you use your Garage as a Craft Room!!! hee hee
I hope to get some photo's done and I will upload them later,
Thanks for looking,

Beautiful cards for difficult times. I do think we could all benefit from having at least of couple of these in our stock boxes especially as you say we sometimes need this type of card in a hurry.

However I also love the designs for Get Well too so it's not all doom and gloom

Hi jenny,
Was great to get back to crafting in a class again instead of on my own :(
Great cards and although not my colours I am going to make the tissue box in black grey and pink I think then it can sit on my desk while I craft.

Fabulous Jenny. Love the colour combo- a great option for masculine cards and the tissue box cover is super.
