Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone - I've missed being able to post something. Jacob started 4th grade last week and things have been a little crazy around our house.

I love to make cards but there is one kind of card that I do not like making and that is a sympathy card. This card is for a dear friend who lost her grandfather today. She sent me an email asking me to tell my Daddy to look for her Granddad in Heaven. She said he would be a good friend for my Daddy.

I simply covered the card base with patterned paper and cut the butterfly using the Indie Art cartridge (one of my favorites) at 1 3/4 inch. The sentiment is a stamp that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.

Hopefully, my life will calm down soon and I'll get back to doing what I love most - crafting!! If it doesn't, I'm going to be in trouble with my Mama. And you know how the saying goes, "If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!" HAAAA!! Love you Mom!! Well, thanks for visiting and come back soon!! God Bless, Donna

Donna, you funny girl. I've got your back, Sweetie. I know the stress of being a Mom with a child in school. I love you. Mom
