sending Cheerful Thoughts 41

Hello! So happy it's Friday! Today I have a couple of Sympathy cards to share that I made for my dear MIL and her sister. Scott's Great Uncle passed away recently so I really needed to get these off in the mail. The first one features a beautiful frame and sentiment from Vintage Frames.
I stamped the frame using Berrylicious ink on a coordinating die cut made using the Die-namics Vintage Frame. I then layered it on top of beautiful die cut doilies made using Die-namics Oval Decorative Doilies DUO dies then topped it off with a die cut Royal Rose:
The second card features features a combination of the Woodgrain Background stamp and a sentiment from the Get Well Wishes stamp set which is November’s Free With $60 set.
I embellished it with a beautiful blossom that was made using the Die-namics Hybrid Camellia Flower die and a couple of leaves made using Die-namics Layered Leaves.
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

These are very pretty, Mona! I especially love the blue and purple together in the first card, great combination. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog as well. I'm doing very well, just busy, but with good things. And I've been choosing more for reading than for card-making to relax, so not much to show on my blog. But I'll be back, no worries! :)
Hugs, Wendy
