Sympathy and Thank You Cards

I needed to make a sympathy card - the only one I had in my stash is a little note card (3" x 3") that you would attach to a flower arrange or a plant. This one needs to go into the mail. I pulled out the Winter Woods Stamp as it is so easy to make a quick Sympathy card. I used an embossing folder on the background paper, then stamped the image, tore the bottom and attached the ribbons.

Thank You Card:
I used my January Counterfeit Kit for this card
Well we had to put Miss Izzy down last month and I needed to get a Thank You Card out to our Vet. This one I have put off long enough.  They have been absolutely wonderful, always so caring about Miss Izzy and the staff sent us a wonderful card.

So I pulled out my Chihuahua stamp as it is so fitting on the front. I used a piece of the Crate Paper 6x6 pad – Portrait Collection for the background and trimmed down the stamped image. 

I added just a bit of the pattern paper behind my stamped "Thank You" panel and a few of the square rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful cards. So sorry for your loss of your furry friend, I can understand why this would be hard to do, but a beautiful card to send to the Vet

Both gorgeous cards for their different purposes.
A sweet idea to thank the vet.
