Christmas Gifts

About a month ago, a friend of mine told me this sad, sad, story. She bought 3 sympathy cards from a store...{sniff} makes me cry just thinking of it, actually having to buy a card...and paid $24 for them. WHAT!!! Ouch. Well, I knew what I was going to give her for Christmas. She's a pastor's wife, so I tried to keep them fairly basic, a few Sympathy, and some Thinking of You cards. I hope she'll be surprised, (I made her 5 of each).

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

I picked up a new Thomas Kincade stamp called Streams of Living Water, and used Labels Eight and Fancy Tags by Nestabilities. How did we ever make cards without Nestabilities???
Here's the inside.
Recipe: CTMH CS-White Daisy, Spring Iris & Outdoor Denim, CTMH Ink-Spring Iris, Black & Lilac Mist, CTMH SS-Say It In Style, Instrinsic Backgrounds & Key To My Heart, Cornish Heritage Farms Stamp-Thomas Kincade Streams of Living Water, Nestabilities-Labels Eight & Fancy Tags, Foam Squares, Pearls.
This Sympathy card was inspired by Michelle. I loved the colour combo. There isn't much to say about it, just sweet and simple.

This card was inspired by Rachel Brumley, she made hers for Techno Stamper Challenge, I loved the soft, Spring colours.
