Inspiration Hop Day 3!!


The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

Sympathy cards are certainly not fun to make but I like to have at least a couple on hand for when I need it.  Gina's new Assorted Greetings, Free with 3 is the perfect set for so many occasions!  I have a hard time with these types of cards but I wanted to keep it real simple.

This card was fun to make and color!!  Our family loves to camp and has spent a fair amount of time doing so!!  When I first saw this set I knew I wanted to create a scene.  I'm not very good at it but I love trying!!  I thought this would be a fun card to give to hubs just because!!
