Sympathy Cards~Here I Go Again!!!







Happy Mother's Day All!!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your Mother's Day. I am relaxing and doing a little crafting today. Well, I have three sympathy cards to make, and this is one of them. My Mom called me yesterday and told me Mother Wright had passed away. She was 87 years young. I met this kind lady some years ago when I used to volunteer as a bingo caller, at a charity in Oakland. She and her children, would cook food to feed the homeless, and anyone who needed food. What a beautiful person, who would care for others in her own way. You will be missed Mother Wright.
Anyway I made this sympathy card for my Mom to give to her family. I used HA for the butterfly, and WC for the sentiment. I also did a finger ribbon fold technique, which I used when I owned my florist. That was over 20 years ago, but I guess all those techniques stays with you. I added table confetti florets, pearls, SU card stock and designer papers. I then embossed the top layer of card stock and paper in my Cuttlebug, and I used my MS border punch down the side. The inside is lined with card stock and design paper, and the sentiment is printed on vellum. That's it for today, enjoy!!!!
