Welcome home banner

Hello friends!

A few weeks ago I was invited to a party to welcome a dear friend home. It was fabulous to see my friend Tanya again and to get caught up with our mutual friends, some of who are also stampers.

Of course the decorations were fabulous....

Sympathy card for loss of family dog

Hello friends!

I want to share with you a card I made for my daughter when one of her dogs died suddenly.

I wanted to send a sympathy card but it had to be just the right card. A little pinterest surfing and I found inspiration from cards posted by Kim Quade and Mary Fish which led to my card.....

This card is very easy to assemble---punch 4 small ovals and a full heart to make a paw. It's that simple!
