3M: Sympathy

Hi friends!

The weekend is here!

And today I'm posting another overdue card 

but I'm of the mindset 'better late than never!'

That means crafty time that is LONG overdue

and catching up on some of the UEFA European Cup 

games that I have missed!

We are a house divided with my husband rooting for his homeland, 

Spain while I am rooting for Germany :)

For the June 3M card group, 

Barb was the hostess and sent us this lovely image to create a card.

It's from Colorado Craft Company called Sympathy,

so that's exactly what I created - a sympthy card!

The cardstock was good enough to hold the weight of water (#100)

so I decided to do a quick watercoloring.

Remember the 80's?

I do!  

So many of the songs are on my playlists when I run and bike ride,

including Prince and his Purple Rain.

I could not wait for the movie to come out and waited in line for hours

with my friends and my hair was dyed purple :/

I used the Gina Marie dotted edge dies to create a dramantic border

around the image and then around the card base.

I added a sentiment from My Favorite Things: sending prayers.

 And that's my card for today :)

I have many that I'm catching up on ~ we are almost in July!

Thanks for stopping by today!
