Life's Big Moments

This week I found myself needing to make cards for people I work with (and school just started!) because they are experiencing major life moments. One gal is having a baby in a few weeks and a shower is being thrown at work, so I made a baby card. The other lady's father-in-law died on Labor Day, so I needed to make a Sympathy card (the first I have ever made). It was a weird juxtaposition to come home from the first day of school and make two very different cards. But I love how they turned out and I hope they give support and joy to the recipients.

  1. Love the way you added the coloured dots to the embossing on the baby card, and I like the variation in colour on the tree.


Imagine a beep. Then leave me a message! I love hearing from you, thanks!
