Hello house friends,

Here we are at the beginnig of a new month at The House That Stamps Built and we're off and running with a new challenge for you.  

It's Designer's Choice and today it's Shirley's choice and her challenge is to make a sympathy card.  Not the most cheerful of cards to make, but necessary cards to have on hand. 

My card uses RI#1704-P "Great Blue Heron", which I stamped on blue cs with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white ep.  I used my Chemeleon Colortone pencils to color the image.  The sentiment is RI#4025-F "Deepest Sympathy".  Again it was stamped with VersaMark ink on black cs and embossed with white ep.  

I hope you found some inspiration here today and for lots more inspiration, check out my team mates blogs

Deonna - Donna - Heather - Joy - Laurie - Patti J - Shirley 

For all the details on how to play along with this challenge, head on over to THE HOUSE.  And don't forget to check to see if you won in our month long challenge for August.  

Thanks so much
for stopping by.
