Hi Stampers, I thought I would show with you my hubby's Valentines Day card I made him .

Hi Stampers, Happy Monday friends ! I needed to make (2) Sympathy cards We needed 1 for my hubby's apprentice who lost a loved one. I used the butterfly on his card. I also added Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake to both sides of the inside so Rich could get everyone at work to sign it .

For both cards I used the Thinking of You from Wetlands stamp set (w)# 126695... Continue reading
