I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

With Sympathy

Cricut, Songbird Cartridge, We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy, With Sympathy Card

Unfortunately we all have to make cards for certain occasions that are more solemn than birthdays or thank yous.  My mom asked me to make a card for a co-worker that recently lost his dad.  I did take this opportunity to use a couple challenges that I could incorporate into a nice sympathy card.  My Craft Spot issued "Sew Fun" this week and Die Cuttin' Divas issued "Twice is Nice".  I pulled out my We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy tool and gave that another whirl - jury is still out on how I feel about this crafting tool, but this time it seemed easier than the attemps before.  I used Songbird for the birds on the outside and inside.  The layout is from Mojo Monday and I really like how the card came together.
