So sorry

I was in need of several sympathy cards. The gentleman who passed away was an avid gardener and was famous for his dill pickles. 

So, as I started to sift through things to find supplies to make these cards, I was thinking to myself how nice it would be if I had some stamps of dill pickles or something related, though I was pretty sure I didn't. At first, I was stumped and had no idea where to begin, not having found any dill pickles in my collection. However, as I continued to dig through my stamp hoard (ahem...), I came across a set that included this lovely dill that I forgot I even owned! Lucky for me, I was able to add a bit of a personal touch to the card despite the fact that they are undeniably CAS.
 I decided to make a couple of thank you cards while I was at it. Sorry for the slightly wonky photos!

Since the current challenge at Shopping Our Stash is "Lost and Found" - to share something you have recently rediscovered in your craft room, I thought I would share this.

Well spring seems to have sprung here in Thunder Bay! I have been out for walks every single day since Saturday! It seems I may have gone for my last ski this past Sunday out at Lappe Nordic- 10 km in my t-shirt - nothing compares to it! Probably could have fit in a few more despite the warm temps (good base of snow in the bush), but we woke up to the pitter-patter of rain on the roof Monday morning and I think it had rained for part of the night, so the trails are not likely looking so good now. Just for the record, I will now stop being secretly (or not so secretly) happy when it snows. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. This dill is perfect! Love that idea. Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!

  5. Great idea to use that dill stamp, it's perfect. Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!

  6. I love these cards! They are well designed and the dill is absolutely perfect. I always love rediscovering items that I have stashed away and forgotten. I imagine I will be rediscovering a few things in the next month or so. We'll be packing up our home and moving about 1600 miles from here. I'll miss crafting while we are in the process of moving and setting up a new home.


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
