Challenge #110 - Get Well - Sympathy

Hello, my crafty friends!  Being sick or going through a difficult trial is anything but fun.  I have 5 sisters (no brothers).  My youngest sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in July and is just starting her difficult journey to recovery.  We have cried many tears together and alone.  She is amazingly calm about everything and seems really positive.  We have all been praying for her and feel like she will get through this and live to raise her 4 young children.  :)

Whether it is a long drawn out illness or loss or just a bout with the flu, it's so hard to watch someone you love go through hard times.  It is nice to be able to send a handmade card to show how much you love them and care about them.  So . . .

This week's challenge: Get Well/Sympathy
(This challenge will run for 2 weeks because of the Stamp Release Party!)

This is the card I sent to my sister:

Now it's time to sit back and enjoy these beautiful projects from my amazing design team!!:


Gwen's card is sooooo cute!! I love her adorable skunk and pretty flowers!  Gwen's fun sentiment is from the Cute Critters stamp set.


GiGi's card is so fun!  I love the polka dot background and her cute image!  Perfect with these sentiments!

GiGi's sentiments are both from the Feel Better Soon stamp set and she cut her little tag from the Tiny Banners metal dies.


Kate's card is gorgeous!  Her 4" Doily makes a perfect background for her sentiment, crinkle ribbon bow and pretty flower!

Kate's sentiment is from the With Deepest Sympathy stamp set


Marlene's gift box is sooo cute!! 

She tied her cut tag on with Snow White Crinkle Ribbon and Red Jute. 

Marlene used Feel Better Soon, Tickets, and Stampin Around Summer, and the Tiny Tags" Stamp Sets for all of her fun sentiments.   She cut her tags and sentiment doilies from the Tiny Doilies Metal Dies, Lacey Banners Metal Dies, and the Tiny Tags Metal Dies.
