With Sympathy


I can't remember the last time I actually had time to participate in a PTI blog hop.  Finally things are getting to a normal speed at work and home, and I have had a little time to create.  The pet sympathy stamps was one of the first stamps I had bought from PTI and I have only used it once (about 1 month after I bought it).  This months hop is to use a never inked or a stamp set that has been collecting a little dust.  This is one of those dusty stamps, so I decided to ink it up so I had some just in case cards.

I don't like to make sympathy cards too complex.  I like to keep it clean so the focus is on the message.  Off to hop!


Supplies
Paper: Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock (SU!); Patterned Paper (Crate Paper)
Ink: Early Espresso (SU!); Ocean Tides - stamped off (PTI); Tea Die Duo (PTI)
Stamps: Pet Sympathy (PTI)
Extras: Die (Quickutz)
