I'm back home. I had a splendid time out on the west coast, enjoying time with family I don't see often enough. I blogged part of my trip on my family blog, if anyone cares to read or look at pictures.

Today is my first day back into my craft room. I, of course, went to 365 Cards for some mojo guidance today. Today's inspiration was to create a sympathy card without the sentiment on the front. So, I used a sentiment on the inside of my card,

and I pulled out most of my religious stamp sets to create the card front. This was more difficult than I thought ... although when you see my card, you may wonder what exactly took so long. Maybe it was the "getting back in the groove" uphill battle ... who knows?

Regardless, it is nice to be back in the craft room creating again! Here's my card:

Supplies: All CTMH. Stamp sets: Frame of Mind, Faith, He Is Risen. Colors: Desert Sand, Black. Embellishments: minibrads, stitched ribbon. Tools: scorer, edge distresser, sanding block.


  1. Simple, understated, and lovely... nicely done Maricar (and welcome back!)

  2. great photos of your vacation with family in Oregon. Your card is perfect for today's challenge.

  3. Welcome back Maricar! It's always good to go away for vaca :) Great take on today's 365 Cards Challenge...nice color combo!
