I think one of the hardest card to may is a Sympathy card. I just try to keep them simple. This is from Wild Card page 32 cut at fit to page 3.75" this will fit in an A2 envelope. The paper is from K & Company with eyelets and ribbon from Making Memories. The With Sympathy on the front of the card is from Scrappy Moms Stamps Everyday Greetings the leaves are from BasicGrey and the inside sentiment is from Inkadinkado.

Crafter's Companion Adhesive

Ordered 4 of these from Crafter's Companion for a Saint Patrick's day project I am working on. I needed a strong glue but the project is small and my ATG gun would have been difficult to use. Did a few test and this feels great in your hand super sticky and holds extremely well. Plus I ordered them online had them in four days!

Thank You

Made this super simple card for my neighbor. She and her husband were so kind last week. They snowblowed our driveway while my husband and I were at work. It was so nice to come home and half the work was done. She LOVES frogs. I welded two 4.25" frogs from Create a Critter page 24 on my Gypsy. Use card stock and Thank You stamp is from BasicGrey. Was perfect for the challenge over at to create a shaped card something other then a square or rectangle.
