Some Good News and Some Bad News

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a wonderful day!  I'm ok.  I'm getting over a cold I got on our trip this last weekend.  But other than a residual cough, I seem to be better.  I don't think the cough will let up soon since I just got over 12 weeks of whooping cough.  What can you do?

GOOD NEWS!  I woke up yesterday and learned that I was picked as a winner over at the Moxie Fab World Blog!  I've been entering these challenges for years and the closest I've ever come is an honorable mention.  I'm really excited!  You can see where Cath featured my card HERE.

Onto some bad news.  I've had to make many sympathy cards lately.  I'm so sad for my friends who are going through rough times lately.  It hurts my heart.  Here is one of the sympathy cards I made.  Since sympathy cards are really really hard for me, I went ahead and CASE'd myself.  I do that when I get stuck.  For this card, I used My Thoughts Exactly Dainty Doilies and My Thoughts Exactly More Big Thoughts.
Have a great day, friends!

  1. I agree with you, Sympathy cards are so so hard for me too. I always feel that anything I say is trit or insincere.. its not.. its just that no words can ever express how it feels I think. I think you have got it just right with thus cards, its elegant, fresh, respectful, and gentle, without being dark, and somber. Thank you for sharing this :)
