on a Monday
I should be asleep right now...I will be working nights the next week or so, and I really should be asleep right now. But I'm not. So I decided to make something. I received my most recent order from Papertrey Ink on Saturday, and I was really looking forward to working with the goodies. And that was a great plan, until I got onto Pinterest and random web surfing, and then...when I REALLY REALLY should be asleep, I said...let me get one card done. So I looked about at what was going on with Monday challenges, and two really got to me. The first, Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #16: Sympathy Cards. NOT my thing. I always feel that I'm borrowing trouble when I have sympathy cards just sitting around. So I passed on that one...for a moment at least. Then I went to check out the latest installment of Grungy Monday (GM08) at Studio L3 using this Tim Holtz technique. I was VERY interested. As I was searching for stamps to use and pulling out the Adirondack inks, I got word that a co-worker lost his Mother yesterday. And then, I needed a Sympathy card. Here it is:
So now I'm off to try and catch a little sleep and say a prayer for a friend. night!
Supplies: Stamps - Papertrey Ink (Through the Trees, Botanical Silhouettes); Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Adirondack Dye Inks (Stonewashed, Cranberry, Terra Cotta, Butterscotch); Paper - Papertrey Ink Stampers Select and American Crafts (Black)
