Sympathy Card Using CTMH Chelsea Gardens Paper and Cherish Cardmaking Stamp

Hello friends!  How are you?  It has been super hot here in Southern CA.  I actually went out for dinner last night to celebrate my stepson's birthday.  There were 4 of us and we ate outside; but there were a lot of people there.  It was 92 degrees outside; but there was a breeze which helped.  COVID is on the rise again; so I was really stressed out about trying it.  I have not been out with family or friends at all since COVID started; so it was a big deal for me.  It was fun; but scary.  LOL!

This is my 2nd card using a retired paper pack with a some current CTMH products.  I always have such a hard time creating Sympathy cards; but I thought I better get it done.  I inventoried all my CTMH papers and couldn't believe how many I have.  LOL!

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!


  1. Another pretty card for Stamping Sensations, however the DP's seem to be the focal elements rather than stamping, our challenge posts explain our requirements.
