Baby Sympathy Card
Two words that should never go together. Baby-Sympathy. My son's teacher has a close friend that lost her baby boy during delivery. I offered to make a card for her to give the family. I normally can make a card in 10-25 minutes, this one took me an hour. Yes, it has a simple layout and hardly any stamping... but I couldn't decide if a bow was appropriate etc. etc. Hopefully you never have to make a card like this, but thought I would share it anyway. I also want to make a few pet sympathy cards with the Papertrey Ink Pet Sympathy stamps. Whenever I need a card like this I seem to not have time to make a specialty card, and then I feel like it's too late to give one when I have time. You know?
Since my card was a "downer" today.... hope this picture brings a smile to you today! This is a cute picture of my 7 year old son. He had his adenoids removed last week. He was fully recovered a few hours later. We have had quite the hard time telling him No sports, No bikes, etc. The Dr. said 2-3 weeks with NO P.E, NO Recess.... we might cheat a bit.
