This is just so beautiful and a perfect sympathy card! I agree. It's so hard to make them when you need them. I should make a few ahead also...

It's a perfect Simpathy CAS card, Kitty! Sweet and simple, but very effective! Love the negative diecut you made with that Memory box die and the tulip looks so pretty! You have fussy cut them so well! I'm not too much accurate in fussy cutting :)

This is a very pretty card. I like how you used the wreath die to make a cutout in the front of the card. Very clever. You are right that these kinds of cards work better when made in advance.

Paula Williams said...

Hi Kitty! You have an awesome blog. This is my first time following anyone on a blog, but I'm so in love with your beautiful cards. Congrats for being featured in Take Ten, I found my copy which was on display in my craftroom so I didn't have to look far, and it's in mint condition might I add, except for page 73 where I put a dog ear to try making your card, sadly, I never got around to it, but I'm re-inspired. Your passion for creating beautiful cards shows and also your love for your kitties. Thank you for sharing your creativity and inspiring us. 😍🙏
