Thought for the day -

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Helen Keller

Well the start of another week. Hope everyone had a good weekend. The weather here is lousy. We had reports of a possible tornado touch down in our city Saturday night. There was some structural damage to some businesses and a few minor injuries. Tis the season, I'm afraid! I am ready for some warm weather.

I may not be posting much in the next 3 weeks, if at all. I am studying for an exam at work. I should have started months ago. I've had the text since January and am just now starting. I'm in panic mode.

I do have 1 card for ya today and it is covering 2 challenges. The first challenge is for Friday Sketchers which provided the layout- this was a great sketch!

















The 2nd challenge is over on Splitcoast Stampers and is from the Limited Supply Challenge which was to use only black & white on your cards. That is my favorite combo so this was a pretty easy challenge. I decided to go with a sympathy card.



All sentiments are computer generated and I only used 1 stamp image- the small butterfly, which is from http://www.susanascustomartandcarddesign.com/. I did the stamp off technique so the butterfly would just be faintly seen. The memory sentiment is lifted from my Uppercase Living catalog, which can be found on my side bar. I just love this sentiment. All cardstock is from Stampin Up and I have no idea who the dp is by- I just had a few scrap pieces left and don't remember where it is from. The embossing is of course Cuttlebug and I just picked up this folder on Friday...I love this one!

Well that is it for me today. See you soon.
