Belated Cards

I have been on a real tear getting cards made for the last few days. 

This is one of two identical sympathy cards I needed to make.  My dad's only brother passed while I was in Florida and couldn't make it home for his memorial service.  He was in his late 80's and was in very good health until the last 6 months.

The second one was for a friend whose father passed a couple weeks ago.  He had been ill for several years and had dementia.  His memorial was on a day when I had another appointment, so didn't make that one either.

This card was for Lillian Abrams, who was my January Mingle partner.  I sent her an email explaining the Florida situation and she excused me from having to do the card then.  I made this one and mailed it out to her this week and she has it already!!
Snowy Hugs is such a cute stamp and seemed appropriate with all the snow that was in this region in January.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and some that our precious Diana included as a gift with one of my orders.

This one is an oldie.  My pictures are labeled "Wendy Bradley".  She was on my BRAK list for November, 2010.  I mailed the card back then - I have the post office receipt for it, but just didn't post pics of it.

The silver metallic is embossed with a Cuttlebug Heritage frame folder.  Isn't it just beautiful?

Princess Tilda is colored with Copics, but I haven't a clue which ones.  Wish I knew - I really like them!
The flowers are Magnolia and Wild Orchid Crafts.

Thank you for stopping by and taking time to look. Hope your weekend is fun filled and relaxing.

Kathy, these are gorgeous. The first is so soft and delicate, then you make me want to get out the Christmas stamps, and the silver is truly elegant.
