Very different from all of the other sympathy cards I have made. I hope the colors aren't too bright for the occasion.
I used the colors from Color Throw Down #1 with the Mojo Week 48 sketch. I love all of Julee's sketch challenges, but I don't think I like the way this one turned out. It could be that it is too "pink" for my taste. I think my dislike is mostly because of my arch nemesis Sage Shadow.
This one is a CASE of this card by Artystamper and I used the colors from SCS CC176

Very simple card. In about 2 weeks or less I will be putting all my stamping stuff away and getting out all my books and supplies for my final year of nursing school. So as the time grows closer my cards may be more simpler.

This was made with non-SU paper. The paper was a cheap brand from a well-known craft store chain. As you can see by the tears on the corner, the paper doesn't hold up very well when scoring and folding. Whether using SU, PTI, local craft store, etc cardstock, it is important that you choose a high quality paper that has a good thinkness to it so your projects will not fall apart.
My circle nestabilities arrived in the mail yesterday from www.cutathome.com and I was so excited to use them today! This card is a combination of 3 challenges: Mojo Week 46 sketch challenge, Color Throw Down Week 2, and Devine Design 2008 Bible Verse Challenge.

This was for another sketch challenge on SCS and I needed to make a card for a friend who is getting married next month.
This is the same card as above but I added more of the Ruby Red layers. I think it looks better with the added layers.

This card is for the SCS FS74 challenge. This is another card that has a meaning for me that I didn't intend as I was making it. There are two Bible verses in this card: Ecclesiastes 3:1 "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven," and Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God." To sum it up, God has a plan and a purpose for me and that He is bringing about according to His perfect timing. What He has planned will occur in His time which will most likely be longer or shorter than I would like. However I am to wait patiently and be ready while always being aware that He is Lord in my life and in control.

This card was really a lot of work! I saw a sketch challenge that that looked interesting and I combined it with another challenge from SCS. Since it may be posted on a very talented person's blog with other phenomenal artist cards I had to make this one look really good! Here is the link for the sketch challenge.
