SUO Challenge #172 - Sympathy and Caring

Good Evening Friends,

There comes a time when we need to express our sorrow over someone close to us that has passed on. It's important to let the ones you love know how you feeling that you understand how they feel and what they are going through. Stampin' Up created a set that, for me, is perfect for this type of situation. Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and the coordinating Flourish Thinlits Dies. I have used them today to create the card for the SUO Challenge #172 - Sympathy and Caring. The color scheme is Basic Black and Whisper White.

This set is offered as a bundle with a 10% savings that will expire the end of May. After that they will still be available but at full price for each item. So now is the time to purchase them.

UPDATE - Just wanted to say Thank You to all of you over at SUO Challenge Blog for choosing this card as one of the Top 3.


If you are in the United States and need a demonstrator, then you can order your supplies in my online store here. Thanks for looking!

The new Catalog will be here June1, 2017. With all of the new craft goodies coming there is a need to make room for them. So some of your favorite items will be retiring soon. If there is an item you wanted but have not purchased it yet, now is the time, while supplies last. It may even be discounted. Time is critical.  Check out everything that is retiring and start your shopping HERE.
