Simple Sympathy Card

Just a quick post from me today as we have the sick bug at my house. It seems to be going from one person to another with a week between. Anyways if I haven’t been visiting your blogs lately that is probably why. 

I have been wanting this stamp for a while..it is a wooden stamp and I picked it up at Michaels for a 30% off yay for deals!  Everything except the stamp and the coin is CTMH.

Speaking of great buys….the textured CS is CTMH and they are offering a deal at the moment..buy one combo pack and get one free…and they will donate $2 for every pack purchased to the relief effort in Haiti. A combo pack is 24 sheets of 12x12 CS…with a dark color one side and a lighter one the other..always with the white core. The price for a pack is $14.95  In this card I used the Bamboo Textured CS and you can see the lighter color on the inside of the card. Let me know if you are interested!

Enjoy!
