Good morning friends, are you excited that it's Friday? I sure am, I am looking forward to an entire weekend of uninterrupted crafting. I have some sick folk in the house though, my son and dear Jimmy, so hopefully I won't be running around nursing them both, lol! We all know how men get when they have a little cold, HA!

Onto my card.. no coloring on this one. One of the nice ladies Jimmy and I know from work was in need of a sympathy card, so I had to come up with one on the fly. 

I used PTI's anniversary set Pretty Peonies again, can I just say I LOVELOVE this set!? I stamped the peony image several times with two colors of inks, then did some fussy cutting so I could layer the petals. 

I finally caved in and got SU's Hello Doily stamp. I just couldn't resist it's beauty anymore. I'm not really too compulsive a stamp buyer, sometimes it takes me months to buy something I've been keeping my eye on. This is one of them. I went for the popular technique of embossing in white and sponging some color around it to really make those intricate details pop.

Hope you like it, thanks for visiting!
