E.A.D Designs Blog Hop~ With Heartfelt Sympathy

Good Morning Bloggers!
It is Monday and time for our 
DT Blog Hop!!
Before I share my project I want to send a HUGE welcome to this month's
Guest Designer~ Stephanie!!
Make sure when you stop by her adorable blog you send lots of love to welcome her!!!
 
Now you should be coming from Jenn's, 
if not and you just happened to stop in to say hello you want to start at the beginning hop on over to
Make sure to comment all around, including E.A.D Designs  for a chance to win some goodies...plus get tons of awesome inspiration!!

For my project today I unfortunately had to make a sympathy card.
Not only do they break my heart to make....it always seems so very hard to design.
Being on the PTO at my kiddo's school I have the chance to show my work by making birthday cards, posters and all congrats, get well and in this case sympathy  cards. I love being able to design and share my projects and greatly honored when the principal asked if I could send out a card to a former teacher at the school who's husband passed away suddenly.
This is what I came up with...


I used E.A.D Designs~Sympathy Sentiments rub-ons
sympathy sentiments
Card Stock from PTI in True Black, Ripe Avacado and Select White
Frame from the Silhouette Store cut with my Cameo
Distress Ink in Peeled Paint
Divine Swirl Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Ribbon from my stash
and
Brads from my stash.

Now you are off to the very talented Judith
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!

Entering this card into the following challenges:
Catered Crop~ Follow the Recipe, used Brads
One Stitch at a Time~ Something New 
(E.A.D Designs Rub-ons....1st time using them!!)
