~~ Sympathy Cards ~~

Good morning Y'all ! I hope your all having a great start to your week.I had to attend a funeral last week for 2 of my dear childhood friend's Mother. I grew up with Debbie and Kathy and was always treated like family when I was at their home. It was so sad to hear that Miss Bea had passed away.I made both girls a card using various carts. The blue card frame was made using Wild Card. I was surprised to find just the type frame I was looking for! The ovals and the scallop were from the same cart. I used a punch for all the vellum flowers and the butterfly.I used the Easter cart for the cross. Did some embossing and added some bling. The purple card was made using the Easter cart for the cross as well and a punch for the lattice. The same Martha Stewart, Hydrangea punch, was used for all the flowers on this one too. Added bling to the centers of each flower. Thanks so much for taking a peek !!!



Beautiful, beautiful sympathy cards, Joy! I'm sure they will bring joy to your two friends. I love the vellum flowers! I have two of those MS punches and my flowers never come looking as pretty as these. NEVER! Love all the detail you put into these cards!


These are just lovely cards Joy. I really love the look of those embossed crosses. I know that your friends will appreciate the time and even more, the love that you put into them. I'm sorry to hear of their loss. No matter our age, it's so hard to lose a parent.

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
