Happy Tuesday!

I hope you all had a great Tuesday!  One more day to hump day.  Time goes just as fast when you are home as when you worked!

I've been working on cards most of the day trying to get some extras for the craft show on Saturday. But I had to make a couple of sympathy cards first so I could get them in the mail tomorrow.  I think I liked these sympathy cards better than any I've made yet and all because of one of the new dies I used on them.  Isn't it funny how you can get new dies & some of them will immediately become your favorites?  I've made 4 cards today with this flower die from Memory Box.  I can see it done up in so many ways & with so many colors & patterns I think I could use it on every card I make!  Here are the 2 sympathy cards I came up with. I popped the flowers up on pop dots for some extra dimension.

I managed to do something to my photoshop & it's making it harder to edit & auto adjust so if they look slightly out of focus, that may be why.  (Either that, or I was slightly out of focus when I took them!) The gray paper is actually a softer & lighter color in person.

The background is another die that is now on my favorites list.  This one is from Spellbinders. I've used it on 4 sympathy cards, a Christmas card & 2 Halloween cards already today!   I knew the minute I saw it that I had to have it! 

This next card is a birthday card made with the Memory Box flower die.  (When I say I REALLY love a die, I REALLY love a die!) ha ha

This was a quickie with that same flower matted with a Spellbinder die & using a Memory Box die in the corner.  

I better get busy.  I have a lot more dies I need to try yet & see if any of them will be new favorites too! 
Have a great Wednesday!



  1. Sherri, this flower is great, and the sympathy cards turned out awesome.

  2. Beauty extreme. Drop dead gorgeous cards!!!

  3. The dies and the cards you made with them are totally gorgeous! What I love best about the flower die is that it adds that dimensional touch without being all lumpy and unmailable. Really fabulous. I'd love to have that one!

  4. OH NO! I don't have this peony die Sherri! Seeing your cards makes me want it. I already kinda wanted it but now... I need it... figures... lol Gorgeous work and I'm sure they snatched them all up at the show!

  5. Gorgeous! What a pretty flower die. You used it to perfection. Makes me want to have that
