Catching up with The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Hello friends! I've finally had some time to craft and I've used it to catch up on a couple of Sisterhood challenges. Last week, Micki had a Germany challenge and I'm using the red/black/yellow of the flag on this sympathy card for a friend who lost her Granny.

I've also used this week's challenge - wax paper resist technique. I'd never tried this before and I had so much fun making different colors using my paper. Head over to The Sisterhood to check out what the more obviously talented ladies created for Darlene's challenge! =)

I used a stamp set that just arrived with my latest Verve order - Forever in our Hearts and boy do I love the sentiments in it! I've also used the Mojo Monday Sketch #140 as my inspiration for the layout.

Stamps: Verve Forever in Our Hearts
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, Glossy White, More Mustard
Ink: More Mustard, Basic Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug Spots & Dots Embossing Folder, Golden Rhinestones, Black Button, Black Ribbon

I've had a busy week and the long weekend was a gong show, as well. I did, however, get out for my first 12 holes at a small golf course with MrP and his friend and a 43K bike ride on Monday, which is good training for the MS Bike Tour I'm heading out on June 12 & 13, but it sure isn't the 93kms/day that I'll be doing. Oh well. I guess some training is better than none and my bootcamp is awesome, even being a tough class with a 3x olympic athlete. =)

This weekend I'm volunteering for the Edmonton City Chase and I can't wait to see what they have me doing. MrP's birthday is on Monday and I'm looking forward to taking him out for supper to celebrate (and my riding lesson that night since I missed it this week being a long weekend) Here's to one more work day before I get my scheduled day off!


  1. I love your take on the mojo sketch and that sentiment is beautiful with the leaf stamp. Along with guy cards, sympathy is one of the hardest for me to make. You hit the right tone with the sentiment and look!

  2. WOW!! This is just beautiful.. Such a lovely sentiment.. Great Resist job..
    Hugs, Linda
