Sympathy card for a friend

Last week, the mother of my best childhood friend, Kae, died. Dorothy was a Christian woman, so Kae, her siblings, and their families have the very REAL comfort of knowing that she is with the Lord, but they, still, must face life without her -- and I want them to know that I care.

I believe that condolence cards should be simple, rather than a showcase of creative talent (if such talent exists :), and I was pleased with the finished card.

I made each of my five grandchildren a Valentine's Day card, this year. Included with some special goodies, my darlins felt LOVED -- and that's what it's ALL about!

Flat Pocket-Front "Thank you" Card

I made a "thank you" card for a dear friend, Sherry, who took me to dinner and then a movie (at her home) for my birthday, last weekend. Several years ago, she was a demo for a rubber stamp company -- and it is GREAT FUN to make cards for her, since she has an appreciation for handmade items.

Just this week, I received a scalloped envelope template that I'd ordered from "Verses Rubber Stamp Co.," so I tried it out on Sherry's card. I really like it!

Since the card will be mailed to her, I used elements that were flat"ish" as well as a heavy weight kraft envelope. It should zip through the postage machine with no problem!
