another mat stack 2 card...

Did you have a great weekend?? Mine was pretty uneventful, just the usual "weekend" stuff. I did get some stamping time in~so of course that always makes me happy; but since I was making another sympathy card (which is getting kind of old for me, 3 in the last 3 weeks), I was thinking about my dear friends who have lost their loved ones !!

This card is for my friend Judy (from high school). Her dad passed away a few days ago, she was so close to him (he lived with her and her husband, so she could take care of him); I wish I lived closer, so I could give her a big hug~but since I am across the country~I made her what I like to call a hug with a fold in the middle, a.k.a.: a card.

I used my Mat Stack 2 stamp set again (I promise to put it away for a little while, LOL) on this card; I also paired sweet blush and scarlett jewel (both PTI colors), and really LOVE the contrast!!

My hubby has today off (MLK day), so I decided to take the day off too :) Not sure what we will do (I have some organizing projects, which I am sure he will love~NOT, LOL!), but I just LOVE having Monday's off!!

Have a Terrific Day!!

Gretchen, love this card and appreciate the detail included. I'm keeping a wish list for PTI goodies so when the time is right I can splurge. Sorry to hear about your friend's dad. What a sweet sympathy card with a hug in the middle!

I am sorry to hear about your friend's dad. I am sure she will appreciate your beautiful card.

I went to order the Mat Stack 2 stamp set on Sunday but it was out of stock :(
