Here are two Sympathy cards I had to make this summer for families that lost their boys to soon. Both of them were just starting on the road to their future.

The brown card was for my husband's cousin. I used the fence border from Cricut cart. "Straight from the nest" (p. 74) . The flowers are stickers. The stamp is from "Hero Arts"

The Yellow card and envelop was for a friend and family. This card was inspired by a shirt I had seen him wear when we first met the family. I was honored to make this card for them.

The envelop is a print of the picture I had taken of the shirt. I enlarged it and printed it out and cut the envelop out.

The card was made to fit an A2 envelop. It is a white base. Tan layer and the the yellow layer was embossed with Cuttlebug folder "Floral Screen" ( this was the closest I had to the background of the shirt) and inked with Colorbox "Dune" ink. The black floral cuts are from Cricut cart. "Life's a beach".

While it was sad to make these cards I was honored to make these special for these families.

Thanks for stopping by.

Special Creations

These are special cards I made for the Doctor who did my dad's surgery. My dad has two buckets he made that said "Kick Here" for when he kicks the bucket. The doctor told my dad if he makes it through he surgery that he wants the oldest of the 2 buckets. So dad made it through very well and the doctor got the bucket. I made this card (#1) and post card (#2) to give out when he needed to give the "Bucket Guarantee" to other patients.

It has been about 9 months since the surgery and dad is doing well. It is amazing that dad has had four types of cancer and is doing very well. God has had a mighty touch on him through this.

Time goes by!

It has been so long since I have posted. To this I am so very sorry. Life has gotten in the way and I hope that now that my kid are both in school I will be able to post more. I have been crafting during my time of being MIA and hope to post them soon. I also hope to get the rest of the ABC Characters videos up as well.

One of the things I had hoped that would not happen did and that was keeping up with posting. My hope is to do so much better this year. Hope you are having a very crafty time and thank you for visiting.
