my APOLOGIES 62

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, August 17, 2011 @ 10:16 PM | , ,

Hi there blogging friends! I am so excited that the UPS man delivered some VERY happy mail the other day which contained a few new Spellbinders die templates! YAHOOOO!!! I'm lovin' the new Picot Edge Circles dies! It contains FOUR beautiful dies! This crafty girl can NEVER have too many doilies! I put them to great use and made this Sympathy card for my sweet friend Stephanie who recently lost several loved ones. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
I combined several pretty Melissa Frances patterned papers along with a decorative Melissa Frances Vintage embellishment. The lovely sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases. Check out all the beautiful detail in the doily:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's MOJO Monday Sketch #204. For awesome inspiration be sure to visit the MOJO Monday site!
Thanks for visiting today! Hope you have a wonderful day and Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders Labels One, S4-345 Picot Edge Circles, Nested Pennants, Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances
Other: Melissa Frances embellishment, Recollections flower
