A Pair of Sympathy Cards

Goodness, how the time is flying by!  Life with these kiddos of mine has been keeping me mighty busy lately.    I am finding time to craft here and there, but not as much time to blog.  So today, I'm giving you a twofer of sympathy cards.  ;-)

First one is easy peasy.  A pale pink card base, a strip of patterned paper, sentiment and a pretty die cut (I did add some Liquid Pearls to it, though).  Done!

This one's not much more complicated, but I stamped my own patterned paper using Stampin' Up! and Anna Griffin, with a Hero Arts sentiment thrown in.

A trio of buttons adorn the bottom corner.  Can you see them?

Oh!  Today I took pictures of my new craft studio in the attic.  It'll take me a few days to get the pictures edited to show you.  Can't wait for you to see it!

Both of these are so lovely, Colleen! Perfect sympathy cards. Thanks so much for the sweet comment you left me this morning. I have been thinking of you frequently as well, but I seem to have an ever-present shortage of time. I look forward to a chance to catch up with you sometime soon, too!!
