For this sympathy card I used early espresso and hello honey card stock from Stampin' Up!  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Blessings From Heaven.  Hello Honey is one of the 2014-2016 In Colors from Stampin' Up!  Every two years they come out with 5 new In Colors, I cannot wait to see what this year's colors will be :)

BLENDABILITIES UPDATE:  There have been continued quality issues with the Blendabilities Markers product line.  Due to the nature of the defect (see below), Stampin' Up! has concluded that difficulties, dissatisfaction, and product returns will only become more widespread. The manufacturer is unable to correct the problem in a manner that Stampin' Up! is certain would meet their high quality standards and provide them with a stable, long-term solution. Therefore, after a great deal of deliberation and in order to prevent further disappointment, the Blendabilities product line has been discontinued.

Q: Will the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad Refill (item #133456) still be available for purchase?
A: Yes. These items will continue to be available for purchase.  The Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad is my FAVORITE every day black ink.  So happy!
Q: What are the quality problems with this product?
A: When the tip is welded to the barrel, the welding process can leave microscopic (invisible) holes in the marker tip. This leads to accelerated evaporation of the alcohol in the ink.
Q: Are all Blendabilities markers defective?
A: No. Most Blendabilities markers work as intended and I personally haven't experienced the drying issue but am aware of it from customers and fellow demonstrators.
Q:  What if I have Blendabilities markers that are defective?  If you ordered them through me, please email me for assistance.  If not, please contact the demonstrator you ordered them through.

I haven't visited many lighthouse, but the ones I have seen are just delightful!  I love how Island Indigo and Soft Suede give this card that beachy feeling.  I could just sit in the sand and watch the birds gather at the lighthouse all day.

I cannot tell you how much I am loving this design paper called Irresistibly Yours.  For this card I sponged in pear pizzazz over the white design paper to added the leafy background.  Then added the flowers and the floral ribbon for that extra spring like feel.
