cry. laugh. remember

Hi, everyone! Welcome to a Stamp-Club-inspired Thankful Thursday.

Last night's get-together was filled with emotions. There were remembrances of Make-N-Takes at Simon Says Stamp's recent CREATE event, laughter about an upcoming retirement, and tears over the recent loss of a beloved furry family member.

Fittingly, tonight's card is going to be sent to our friend who is mourning her dog's passing.

Bazzill cobblestone and Stampin' Up! black cardstocks; Distress Ink Victorian velvet core paper
My Favorite Things you make my tail wag paw print image
MFT pierced heart STAX dies; SU square stitched die; Simon Says A2 curved die
CMTH big hugs sentiment, in Versamark black onyx
Cuttlebug and SU/Sizzix embossing folders

The Bazzill cobblestone cardstock was a real fine at Tuesday Morning. Two 25-sheet packs were just #2.99 each! And, the sentiment came from one of those 17 CTMH stamp sets that I got as part of that amazing garage sale find a few weeks ago. Kind of balances out those MFT splurges.  :)

Speaking of MFT, this card was inspired by the current MFT Sketch. So, I'll be sharing this over at MFT.

And, because it is a furry friend sympathy card, I'm going to link it up at the Simon Says Furry Friends Challenge.

Parting Thoughts

Another quick reminder that our Words 2 Craft By Springtime = Party Time Challenge is still open. This challenge's words come to us from Robin Williams... and we'd love for you to join us.

Have a nice Friday. I hope to be back with a patriotic card this weekend. Until then, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!


  1. You nailed the sketch, Sybrina, but more importantly, you've made a beautiful card for your friend. I love that sediment and I'm sure it will bring her much comfort! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Love this Sybrina! That curved edge is pretty!

  3. Beautiful sympathy card.
    Thank you for joining us at Simon says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
