Gladiolus Sympathy

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I last posted. I've been busy at home but also decided to rearrange my crafting room. I have 2 desks that are made from Ikea kitchen cabinets that are VERY heavy. I didn't want to wait for dh so I moved them myself. One inch at a time. It took me over 30 minutes to move one of them. LOL! I was determined. Anyway you can imagine the disarray when you tear apart all of your craft supplies to re-organize. The good news is that I was able to make a card today. The bad news is that it is a Sympathy card for a good friend.

I wasn't too sure about the cream ribbon with the white base, but I recently read in a design magazine that you can match the two together. So I'm going with it. Plus, I don't have any white ribbon. ;-)

Inside I kept it basic but added a touch of the white dove. What do you think?

I'm going to hand deliver this today. So I chose to add the stamp to the envelope in a matching blue. This is my first time using PTI's YOF: Gladiolus and I just love it.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. And give your family members an extra big hug today.
