A sympathy card and Valentines card

A genealogy friend and cousin lost his wife last week. They had a rare, close and loving relationship and he is going to need lots of prayers to deal with his loss. I made this card for him.

My inspiration was a card by Tammy E. with a few tweeks of my own. She is such a wonderful Christian example of how cards can be used to pass on the love of Jesus Christ. Thanks again Tammy for your beautiful work and your loving soul!

I used paper from a pack that my friend Shelly had given me a while back
the card base was cut from A Childs Year (card function 3rd row-7th button over-3.7)--cut at 5 1/4 in.
I printed the words off the computer and used the center cut on the expression (sorry--I forgot what I cut it at) with the scalloped oval from Forever Young

I got a new butterfly punch from Martha Stewart (at Michaels) and used a 40% off coupon so it was under $6! It has one small butterfly and two smaller ones--I love it.

I used my Irock and was having trouble--then realized the batteries where going dead-dah!
I used the Mother's Day Bouquet to make the little flowers.

I couldn't sleep last night so I designed this card on my Gypsy (love that little tool and just got the 6 foot cord that connects to the Cricut--nice!

Here is the card I designed about 3am! Love the pop-up

The front I used the two backgrounds from Storybook and the Hugs & Kisses from Wild Card. I used the lips and the "Smack" from Indie Art.

Thanks for stopping by and leave a comment if you have the time.
