For the inside I deceided I wanted to use letter stencil. I used a quote from one of my justrite stamps. I switched out the word beautiful with soldier, because it seemed more appropriate. Over I'm happy with it. Except the cloud scissor cut. I don't feel they line up right ever when I use them, which is why I normally don't. I don't know, maybe I just need more practice!

Ok it's not often I make two cards in one night. I've only done that once before only because I was trying to make a fathers day and a birthday card for my dad before I went to New Hampshire to visit! So the card I made tonight is my Third Comfort a Military Spouse card. I found these clear embelishments that I thought would look nice in the center of the tickeled pink stamp set. Now that I see it on the card I think I may have figured out what I'd like to do for my own personal wedding scrapbook page! I used a justrite stamp verse in the middle of the card. I thought it was great that way, but I had to add the hemp bows because I made an opps because I got some ink on the stamp that showed up where it shouldn't have. I hate it when that happens! Actually it happens more then I like to admit! So the bows are to make a distraction from the unwanted ink. This time I left the inside of the card blank. Anyone else still interested in winning some blog candy by donating a sympathy card still can till the end of this month August 2009! Rules are in my earlier post http://jesskittelson.blogspot.com/2009/08/comfort-military-spouse-and-win-some.html

clinic (I'm sure you can imagine the days, Bark Bark, Poop, Bark, Poop, Poop, and some more Bark! LOL) I had two packages waiting for me. One of them was my first avrial of sympathy cards YAYYYY! The second was the JustRite Stamp set that was donated to me to help me in this quest of making sympathy cards I chose to take on! So today I sat in my craft room .... OHH I didn't mention I had an actual room now did I? Yes I now have a craft room! I moved into a renovated home and have an extra bedroom which has become my Craft room. I no longer have to sit in the dinning room at the dinning room table! Nope now I sit in my designated craft room at the dinning room table! Ok way off track now. So I sat down with my stamps and paper and thousands of other misc junk and wondered where to start? Well since I still had Barbs Sketch fresh in my mind from PMS http://gotpms.blogspot.com/ So I decided my first sympathy card I would use that sketch. I had these neat square buttons I thought I'd use. I kinda found my paper and thread colors from there. The inside of the card is a stamp set... It's upstairs sorry I can't remember the name, but it's a Close to my Heart stamp set that I borrowed from Penny over at http://scrappinpenny.blogspot.com/ She's a personal friend of mine so she was very nice to lend it to me! Thanks Penny! Anyways the inside has the flowers on the left side on a cut peice of paper to cover the stitching on the front of the card.
Well that's all I got done today! Tomorrows a new day though! I enevy some of you crafters that can make several cards in one day! Anyways if anyone is interested in stillparticipating in my Comfort aMilitary Spouse and WIN BLOG CANDY! then please read the rules in my post here: http://jesskittelson.blogspot.com/2009/08/comfort-military-spouse-and-win-some.html

This is a Thank you card that I made to send to my Aunt about a week and a half ago. She sent me a "very late" wedding gift (8 months late lol), But hey lates better then never sometimes lol! I kinda really like how it came out. Kinda hard to see in this picture but I chose daisys, as they are my favorite flower and I had some at my wedding. So I felt Daisys were the appropriate stamp fot this card! I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the envelope came out as well!
