Sympathy

These are two cards I have made recently for friends.   It must be my age - there seems to be so many  friends who are going through a difficult time for many different reasons.   The design for these cards came from my upline Angela McKay when we were at Crop Night at her house about a month ago.    We did our cards that night in pink and I thought they would look pretty in various colors so I tried a few and really liked them.   The card at the top is Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip with Certainly Celery leaves and ribbon.   The card on the bottom is  Perfect Plum and Pale Plum again using the Sweetest Stem Embosslit Die with Certainly Celery.     A word of advice:    don't send these big metal brads overseas.  :)  It  is quite a bit more expensive because they don't fit through the little envelope slot!

gorgeous cards! I love the idea for the stem! I'm sorry you've had to create so many sympathy cards though:(

Both cards are beautifull and will be greatfully received I'm sure.
