With Sympathy

This Sympathy card is for a sweet friend. I find Sympathy cards the hardest cards to make. I want the card to be respectful and appropriate. Most of the time, I just buy one instead of making it, for these reasons.

Hooters! Breast Cancer card.

This card is for a friend who recently finished reconstructive surgery after breast cancer. The owl is from the Cricut, Happily Ever After cartridge. Isn't this the cutest owl ever?

This weeks challenge was to use the wreath on Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge. I put the wreath on a tag and made a tag pocket for the tag to slide into. The tag is from a Sizzix die. It has been awhile since I stitched on a card, so, I stiched the pocket together. I love this paper, it is double sided and so fun and cheery.

Feel better

This card took on a life of it's own. I had a completely different sketch in mind when I started working on it. The inside of the card is posted below. I always wondered what I would do with a green flower, but, it worked for this card.

I had to try out this new punch.

It took me a while to figure this punch out, but, once I did, I loved it. Next time I will space the flowers farther apart so that the strip will go from top to bottom of the card, but, I only only had a small scrap piece of this cardstock to work with. I would have had to cut one of the flowers in half to get it to work. Oh well, live and learn! I love how the flowers "pop" out when you open the card.

All roads lead to somewhere

I love this little VW stamp. (I had to add a Mickey antenna ball!). I think this little saying is so sweet.
