I've Got the 'Blues'

I am making a quick post tonight of two cards,  I'm sorry to say, I'll be needing this weekend due to some sad news. My dear friend's  mom passed away very suddenly and my hubby's brother ended up in the hospital. So with that said I had to hurry to make two very special cards. I'm also running late so I'm going to list the items I used after each card, but the construction of both are easy enough to figure out.  So I apologize in advance for the brief discriptions.

For both I'm going to showcase some of my very FAVORITE new & old stamp sets and new & old colors. All of the items used can be found in the new Ideas Book & Catalog 2010-2011.

The first is a sympathy card using Bashful Blue CS embossed with the CB woodgrain embossed pattern.

Stamp sets: Elizabeth, Elements of Style, Thoughts & Prayers, Word Play. Cardstock; Bashful Blue, Gray, Whisper White. Ink: Mariner Mist, Early Expresso, Pear Pizzazz. Ribbon: Bashful Blue.

The second card is a get well card using Pear Pizzazz CS and the new Greenhouse Gala DSP.

Stamp sets: Friends Never Fade, Upsy Daisy, Thoughts & Prayers. Cardstock; Pear Pizzazz, Early Expresso, Whisper White. Ink: Mariner Mist, Early Expresso, Pear Pizzazz. Ribbon: Bashful Blue.

Well there you have it. I hope you like them.
