Sadly, it seems I have needed to make more of these cards lately…but as I make one I think how the simple gesture of a card at a time of loss can mean more to someone than the sender may ever know. As I prepared for my week, I thought I would post this card for the Dynamic Duos Black Tie Challenge # 79 of Black and Smoky Slate hoping it might inspire someone to make a card that is sometimes a challenge to come up with at the moment you need it.
On a lighter note…as I posted it on the Design Team site- I thought, “Wow, everyone went with a Christmas Theme this week.” Ahem, note to self: read the fine print- DESSERT OPTION of Christmas. However, let this be a sample of OPTION- I guess I opted out…lol. Will you choose the dessert option of Christmas when you play this week? I can’t wait to see what you come up with this challenge…Go on over and check us out at the Dynamic Duos Challenge Blogspot.
