Sending Love ~ Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!

The designers for Shop Pumpkin Spice is having a Blog Hop. The theme for this hop is to create a sympathy card. We know it's a difficult task and we wanted to help you all a little.

You should have gotten here from Lezlye's blog: Ink and Paper Creations. If you just happened upon my blog then you will want to start from the beginning at the Pumpkin Spice Blog so as to not miss a thing.

I have to say that I have not had to make many sympathy cards so it took me some time to figure out what I wanted to do.

When I think of sympathy cards I think of soft soothing colors. That's why I turned to My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose "Hazel" 6x6 paper pad. This pad is filled with beautiful prints in soft colors. All the printed card stock is from this pad.

I used a sentiment from the new My Pink Stamper Handle with Care set. I added some ribbon from my stash and topped it off with a brad from My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy Tickled Pink decorative brads.

Other items used:
Cricut Expression
A Child's Year Cartridge ~ scalloped oval tag
Cindy Loo ~ Flower
Ranger Distress Ink ~ Tea Dye

Thank you for stopping! Now it's time to head on over to Lenae's blog: Sugargem Crafts.

Your sympathy card is so beautiful. I, too, have not really attempted making a sympathy card due to not really knowing where to begin. The colors you used seem to be so calming. Love it!
