Sympathy Card

Hi everyone! Only two more days until we ring in the new year... LOL, I'm sure I'll still be writing 2009 on my checks until February, though... Habits are hard to break sometimes, and I *always* struggle with getting the year right at first... Maybe if I just slowed down and wasn't in such a hurry, eh? :)

Oh... Just a reminder, today is the last day to enter this week's Monday Freebie Fun Day giveaway... All you have to do is leave a comment on this post (<--- click here) by midnight EST tonight to be entered for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate...

Have a great one!

  2. This is really beautiful, Heather! I love the background and the colors!

  3. Lovely card, Heather! I love the pop of Aqua Mist.

  4. You know, I rarely make sympathy cards (or see them). I definitely like yours. I'll have to do some stamping and make some - my cousin wanted some that she can send for church. Have a Happy New Year! ;p

  5. This is so pretty, Heather. Love the little piece of Aqua Mist in there...giving it some pop, but not the fun obnoxious pop you don't want on a card like this. Nice!

  6. Beautiful card, Heather! Hope you have a wonderful New Years!

  7. So very pretty! Have a fabulous and happy New Years Heather!
