A Simple Sympathy Card...

Good Friday Morning!!! There is more snow in the air and on the ground and I must say, I'm pretty tired of it all!! I was getting Kaitlyn ready to run some errands yesterday and oh, how I miss the days of just grabbing some sandals and heading out the door!!! No hats, coats, boots or a little one who likes to run into the snow and then my car!!! LOL!!! I am ready for summer, or at least sunny, warm weather with gorgeous blue skies.... okay, summer!!! hee hee!!
Our new year has begun with losses already. A friend's Dad passed away and Sunday we learned that a good friend who had moved to Kentucky passed away from a heart attack! Greg was such a fun, happy guy who would do anything for you! I feel so bad.... and now, one of my special friends is waiting and watching her mother pass away, she is in hospice and they keep telling her that she won't make it through the day... it's going on day three and Hope is just beside herself. She has asked me to make the memorial board... it's an honor, but one that I don't enjoy doing. So I've started making sympathy cards... looks like I'll need a few....
This one is very simple, I embossed a panel with a Sizzix folder, added a seam binding bow and another smaller embossed panel, this is a small Cuttlebug folder, stamped "peace" on it and painted the raised portions with Shimmerz in angel wings.... simple, but I think it works.
My daughter in law has a snow day today ( go figure!) so I have no kiddos. It's laundry day and I have a ton to catch up on!!!
Enjoy your day and tell your friends how much they mean to you!!!
