Sharing Sympathy Cards

Hi, guys!  Hope all is well.  I hope you had a great weekend.  I had a great one.  We got to visit with friends for dinner and spent time yesterday with my father in-law and rooted for the Mets (to no avail!).
I thought I would share a pair of cards I made this week.  They are sympathy cards I made for my sister in-law and her mom.  I love card making, but making these cards is always hard for me.  I know they are necessary, and I sure hope they let the recipient know they are loved and being thought of.



Supplies:
Stamps: Close To My Heart
Paper: Ranger Core-dinations, Gina K Designs (White)
Ink: Stampin' Up
Misc: Tim Holtz Sanding Block, Cuttlebug embossing folder

On a lighter note, I thought I would share a picture of some of the work that my husband and I did on my stamp room this weekend.



I am starting to bring up my supplies and trying to figure out the best way to store them.  I am thrilled with the two lazy susans I found.  I decided to use one of them for my Distress Stains, and the other for my collection of spray inks.  I was able to order a new chair and pick up a floor lamp.  I will have more pictures later in the week.  I can't wait - it is starting to take shape.

Hope you have a great day!

Hi Winnie! I saw the comment you left on my blog and had to come see pics of your room in progress. I want you to know my first scraproom was very tiny, more a room for a baby. With some creativity and organization it's amazing what you can do! Have fun with your new room. I love what I see so far!

I just saw your other comment about my ink holder. My husband made it and it was a real bugger for him! LOL! Said he would never make another one! I have seen similar ones on ebay. He made it to match my ribbon holder. I have since seen a better ribbon holder on Pinterest. Are you on Pinterest? If so find me (Cindy Marchant)and look in my scraproom organization and you should be able to find it. I love mine until I need to take a roll off and then it becomes a real headache. But I think mine can be altered to be like the one on Pinterest.
