Heartfelt Creations Alumni Team Blog Hop!

Hello!  It's time for another Heartfelt Creations Alumni Team Blog Hop!   I know you'll enjoy each and every blog you visit!  Happy inspiration by some very talented ladies! 

Heartfelt Creations Alumni blog Hop coming Tues 9-27
We will be giving away the Stamp Set HCPC 3306 Posy Patch Garden Delights Pre Cut Set. The winner will be randomly selected from comments received on all our blogs for the hop through midnight Thursday the 29th!  The winner will be announced on Saturday October 1st on our blogs...wooo hoooo!

I'm up first, but you may have come here from Linda's blogsite.  No problem!  Let's get to it!  Enjoy!

For my card, I used several commercially made embellishments
because I needed to make this card in a hurry. 
The lace, ribbon, flowers, pearls and dies made my job much easier.  I don't
normally take this "simple and quick" approach to making my cards,
but I think the card looks like it took a lot of work to make. 
I thought the light blues helped make the card soothing.

The sentiments on this card are from the Heartfelt Creations HCPC3377 Sympathy Sentiment PreCut Set.  They are just wonderful, caring and simple. 

Other products I used to make this card are:  blue striped cardstock from Stampin' Up, white cardstock, Stampin' Up Bliss Blue classic inkpad, Momento's Paris Dusk, Zva pearls, flowers from Prima, fern punch, ribbon and lace from stash, and Parisian Accents border die.

Next up on the blog hop is the oh-so-talented Debbie!  But before you go to her blog, please just take a second or two to leave me a note on what you think of my card.  I appreciate all comments left!  Thank you!

Clare - this is where you are now!

  14. My thoughts before I read your statement on making this card were " My, what a lot of work and care went into making this card. It just has to make one feel cared about when getting it!" and then when I read about you making this in a hurry, I shouted out loud " No Way!". So see, even when you just throw something together, you can not help still giving it all the detail which shows that you care! Wish I could whip up something even half as nice as this! Great job!
