Tami Mayberry Blast from the Past Blog Hop


Today we are helping Tami Mayberry end her month long Blast from the Past with a customer blog hop. Tami is an illustrator for Gina K Designs; and, if you haven't been to her blog this month to see all of the featured ideas using her stamp sets, you'll want to be sure and stop by today. You could win FIVE of her stamp sets simply by leaving comments on her blast from the past posts. You can click here to find more details.

Here is a list of all of the blog hop participants.
Tami Mayberry
Emily Giovanni
Laura Williams
Tami Grandi
Debbie Seyer
Cindy Coutts
Vicki Dutcher
Sue VanDeVusse
Michelle Woerner
Jeanne Streiff
Lisa Silver -- You are here!!!

If you didn't come here from Jeanne Streiff's blog, you'll want to start back at the beginning with Tami's blog.  Each comment left on the participating blogs will also count as an entry into the random drawing for the 5 stamp sets being given away.
So with all the details out of the way, I'd love to share my project with you.

With Sympathy

I think creating sympathy cards can be so difficult. I always think the colors and design need to be simple, because it's more about the message than the design, don't you think? This card was a quick project and one that I'll keep in my stash for those times when I want to send a thoughtful message.

I'm the last blog in the chain.  However, if you have Tami's stamps and missed the deadline to sign up for the hop, you can still play along by leaving a link on her blog.

Thanks for visiting!
