Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a lovely and safe New Year's Eve.

I have been busy this evening making another Sympathy Card. I am glad to have them both made now - I find them so hard to make! This one is for a friend who lost her father just before Christmas.

I have not used a Magnolia on this card either. I needed to make it quicker than the time it takes me to make a Magnolia card.
I used a Stampin'Up Set on this one called 'Thoughts & Prayers' for the image and both of the sentiments.

The DP is from Bo Bunny and is called 'Back to Back', the card stock is SU Basic Black. I stamped with SU Basic Black ink as well and covered the image and the outside sentiment with clear embossing powder. The black ribbon is a beautiful black striped corduroy. The only other things I have used are some MS medium black half back pearls and four tiny black pearls on the inside.
The inside right:

I am sorry I forgot to take a picture of the inside left, but I just used the same two papers as on the front with the Basic Black.
I am off to start on some of the many cards and other projects I have to get done this month. I am sure I will be back soon with another post.
For those of you having to go back to work on Monday. Please take care if you are driving in the snow.
Love, Candy
