Embossed Sympathy.......

It's been a long time since I had my brass stencils out and I needed another sympathy card - WHY don't I have these kind of cards handy???!!!

I needed it quick like-"the mail lady is coming around the corner!!" quick!!!

So I grabbed a sheet of Vintage Cream cardstock from Papertrey Ink, cut it in half to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", and then scored it in the center at 4 1/4".

I used my long rectangle nestabilities to make the embossed rectangle with my Cuttlebug.

Then I took my old-fashioned embossing light thingy - I forget what the actual name of it is - and my brass stencil and embossed away using my stylus. If anyone knows the name - please let me know!

I added a titch of ribbon, stamped the sentiment inside and sent it away! Oh yes, I did sign it too.

This is not the best picture, but I had to take it fast!!

But honestly, it took me about 15 minutes to make.....the longest part was finding figuring the stencil to use!!

Well, UNBELIEVABLE---- I see I have surpassed the 25,000 hits mark!! UNBELIEVABLE! did I say that already......?

I am going to be offering up blog candy so I have to go and figure out what I am going to give away!!

I have sooooo much stuff and I don't know why - maybe it's because I am so unorganized forgetful generous to a fault! - but that is for your benefit- so I promise when I sort out some "schtuff" I will do the candy .

Thank you so much everyone for all your wonderful comments and continued support!
