A new embossing folder

The card is sitting atop my laptop. How's that for rushing. And it's night and it's from my IPhone.

I finished this card days ago and sadly I have to use it already. A cousin of my childrens' passed away last week. I was trying to get a sympathy card stash together. We all know how difficult they are to make if you need one right away.  I picked up a new Darice folder earlier this week, thinking it would be very useful for masculine cards. I used my Cheery Lynn die for the leafy vine. I ink-embossed the folder with Tim Holtz brick red distress ink. The sentiment is from SU die cut with a Nestabilitie, as well as the cs.

I will be putting this in the mail first thing Monday.

Count your blessings

Where have I been?

Hi Stampers,

I have been cruising and visiting relatives. I sailed on the 2nd largest cruise ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet, Oasis of the Seas. When we docked in Florida, I headed straight to Atlanta where I visit relatives whom I hadn't seen for eons and got to meet some new little ones too. We ate, did some sight-seeing, hit the pool, and overall had a great time.

Here's a card I finally managed to rustle up once my mojo got working. I used the sketch challenge over at Fetch A Sketch.

I don't plan on going anywhere for a while, so I'll be blogging often.

Have a great weekend.

Blessings, Erica
