Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Heartfelt Sympathy


Hello, I am hosting our Color Week at Just Us Girls and the colors I have chosen are Yellow, Dark Green, and Grey. Unfortunately, I have been needing a ton of sympathy cards lately. It has been a really hard few months for some of our dearest friends and relatives. And this morning as I write this post, I just found out I need another one. I love the way this turned out so I think I will just repeat this card later today for a dear colleague that lost her daughter to cancer. So much sorrow in the world right now.

Card Details: Most all of the dies are from SU, the stenciled background is called Groovy-I think! The greeting is from Verve.

I would love to see you join us at Just Us Girls this week! Take care, Nanc’
