Courage doesn't always roar.... cards for two special ladies.


Hi crafty friends, so sorry it's been so long between posts. We have just had a rough month 'round these parts with illness and medical issues. But today I am taking some meals to some sweet local friends whose husbands recently passed. I feel that our small town has seen more than its fair share of death this year, so sad. I know both these ladies personally, and had either not sent sympathy cards yet, or sent them several weeks ago. I thought it might be nice to include a card with the meals. I also thought, they would probably prefer they not be sympathy cards at this point.... just that it might be better to make something a bit more encouraging for them.


I opted for softer colors on these cards, I used some TCP CutUps, some Verve stamps, and some SU! stamps in the background of the sentiments. One went more in blue/gray tones....






And the other in a brown/green palette.


I love this stamp, it really is a wonderful stamp for encouragement....
Thanks so much for stopping by. See you back here soon!! 

xo, Noelle
