With sympathy

Hello everyone,
I am back again today.  Am feeling blue that Monday and work and school are all starting up.  I guess I need to enjoy my last day tomorrow.  Anyway, I found out on Friday that a colleague's mother passed away after a long hard battle with cancer.  So this card is for her--she has shown great strength and poise throughout this time...more than I could imagine doing if it was me.

The card I made is simple, but elegant (I think at least).  I used an SU mandala stamp and cut it up, layering it with foam tape.  All the SU punches worked great for this.  As you can see...quite a few Swarovski crystals to bring the card from drab to fab.  Nothing like a little bling.

With that being said, I will enter this card into the following challenges:
Stamps: SU
Punches: SU
Die Banner: MFT
Other: Swarovski crystals
Paper: Paper Studio

Would you indulge me in a little bit before I log off?  Below are a few creations by my older daughter Julia.  She hasn't been so much into card making lately so I was thrilled when she made not just one, but TWO creations, seen below.  The second is a mandala stamp from the now closed Outlines store.  I so miss their beautiful mandala creations and stamps.

WEll thanks for stopping by today.  You will get Kathy back for a few days before I make a return.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Margaret
