It's Been a While! Sympathy and Thinking of You cards

Hi there friends,

Well, where on earth have I been lol? I'm here. We continue to do our best while riding the roller coaster of "What's Going On With Our Health Today?" Just to cut it really short, my arm is back in a cast among other things but we keep on enduring. ♥

Recently we have had several friends pass away and some who are fighting very serious illness. The cards below are the best I can do while using mostly one hand, laying flat, and using some pre-embossed panels from a while back.

Jennifer McGuire has started a new challenge to share any handmade items with friends and family. Well, these cards will be going to friends and family, cards are my favorite way of showing loved ones I care, and will enter the challenge with these.

Leslie at StampTV challenge this week is having a 1-2-3 Challenge. I used one flower stamp, 2 colors or shades of same color, and 3 round sequins.

Stamp Sets: Gina K. Designs (Flowers Bloom, Spring Blessings, Botanicals, Sunkissed Autumn)
Inks: Memento
Embossing Powder: Wow Clear
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh
Various Embossing Folders, cords and twines

Technique: Emboss Resist (Stamp the verses first, dust paper with embossing buddy or cornstarch, then stamp the flowers with Versamark, sprinkle and heat clear embossing powder, sponge color over flowers, wipe off ink from flowers)

Thank you all for coming by, leaving your sweet comments!
I've been missing you all! Aloha ♥


  1. Your cards are so wonderfully done and no one would know you were working with a handicap. They are beautiful. Hope you heal fast my friend.

  2. So very sorry to hear about your arm being in a cast again (as well as your "other things")!!! I wish I could help! To think you made this rainbow of beautiful cards one-handed, is amazing to me... Love this technique, and it's perfect for your sympathy/thinking-of-you cards. You are kindness personified! (Hope you win Jennifer's challenge!) Sending gentle hugs.

  3. Love the Emboss Resist Technique, these cards are so beautiful! That Botanical set is a great one to have, I love it!

Glad to see you are creating and sharing your work, we love it when you do! xo~

  4. Beautiful cards Rosy. I can't imagine trying to make cards one handed....you are amazing. Sending heartfelt wishes for healing and better health. I know what it's like trying to keep your spirits up and a good attitude when you're dealing with multiple health issues, and you are doing a great job of it.

  5. Oh my goodness, I love these so much. All the beautiful colors, and that stunning embossed resist focal. Just gorgeous!! I have missed you, and I'm so sorry to hear you have a cast again - that must be getting so old. You always inspire me so much with your gentle, loving spirit and great attitude.
