Tuesday, January 12


I made 8 Sympathy cards (remember these) in November, and would you believe all of them are gone. So I created a few new ones. I know these are not traditional colors for a sympathy card, but my husbands mother and her sisters are CRAZY about purple. So I need purple cards in my stash. I will show you a normal one that I created tomorrow.

This card uses the color challenge today on SCS -- Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry, and Chocolate Chip. I think I pushed the limits of the challenge again. The razzleberry is obvious, but I bet you are thinking -- where is the pretty in pink. It's there, it is sponged with chocolate chip.

Thanks for stopping by,

Stamps: Friends 24-7, Thoughts and Prayers
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry, Raspberry Lemonade DP
Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Chocolate Chip
Extras: Pinking Heart border punch, sponges

OMG...so elegant! I could almost use this DP now that I see it sponged!

This card is INCREDIBLE! I never would have thought to sponge cc on pp and it totally works. This is my new favorite Corie card (and the faux watercolor daisy card and...)

Corie, this card is STUNNING.

Well I am one of those "Crazy" people who love purple and when I saw this one, I fell in love with it. Even though it is a sympathy card, I think it is perfect. Just beautiful and one of my favorites today. Thank you for sharing it with us.
