A Team Effort.....

Happy Valentine's Day to all my stampin' PEEPS! I hope that you've had a relaxing, chocolate-filled Sunday with your loved ones....I've had an awesome day with DH and DS - DD is at a friends house again overnight.

We received some news that a friend of DH lost his sister yesterday so I needed to come up with a Sympathy card and those I find the most challenging cards to make. SO...I hopped online to check out some challenge sites to see if they could help me with my creation - and there's no surprise that I found a couple! Stacey's Curtain Call had a perfect color combo for a sympathy card, and the Sweet Sunday Sketch this week was a great partner for the colors. I got to work right away....

My DH helped me out with this one - I love it when he's home - he puts in his 2 cents on my cards and helps me when I'm having a block. This card had to be revamped a couple times as I had difficulty with the color placement, but we got it figured out!

Here is our collective creation....

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, So Saffron, Going Gray; Ink: Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Nestabilities, oval punches, paper piercer, sponge dauber, dimensionals, chocolate taffeta ribbon

Thanks for stopping in tonight. I am off to have a nice long, hot bubble bath with my new Body & Soul mag I got in the mail on Friday....tomorrow is a busy Family Day. We are heading up to Millet to *hang* with our good friends The Camps. I am going to crochet tomorrow while we visit and so I'll be back probably on Tuesday!
Enjoy the rest of your Valentine's Day evening and happy Family Day tomorrow! CHEERS!
