Cards With Your Deepest Sympathies

While we hate to think about it, there are some cards you just might not want to make. Sympathy cards is what I'm talking about today. In the blink of an eye we realize how short life really is. We want to "be there" for our friend or loved one who is going through a tough time. If we create a handful of sympathy cards we will be ready when life throws a curve ball and we will be ready to help others in their time of need.

Love, Wedding, and Valentine's card sentiments

When you create your card, you always need a sentiment to let the recipient know of your feelings.

  1. 1.
    a view of or attitude toward a situation or event; an opinion.
    "I agree with your sentiments regarding the road bridge"
    synonyms:view, feeling, attitude, thought, opinion, belief
    "the comments echo my own sentiments"
  2. 2.
    a feeling or emotion.
    "an intense sentiment of horror"

I have loads of sentiments listed below for your Love, Wedding, Anniversary and Valentine's Day cards.

UR2 Cool!

Ah, the month of February (yes, it's coming soon) always brings thoughts of Valentine's and those little Conversation Hearts. By the way, does anybody really like those? We always ate them as kids, but they are certainly not my favorite candy!

So let's get a jump on Valentine's Day and create a few LOVE cards!

Sentiments for your Thank You cards

When you make a thank you card, or any card, for that matter, you need a sentiment. A saying or quote for the inside of the card, or perhaps the outside, that will let the recipient know just how much you appreciate them.

Here's a list of possible sentiments you may want to use on your next thank you card.

Thank you cards come in handy!

We are always in need of quick, easy cards to send out for the special things others do for us. Why not create a small stack of cards so you are ready for someone's RAK (random act of kindness). Oh, I can give a whole stack of thank you cards as a RAK!

Jury Duty

The court calls! UGH! I got picked for jury duty. I was hoping the case would be settled out of court and they would dismiss me, but no such luck. I have to report at 8am tomorrow morning. Needless to say, my blogging will be postponed until I can get back!!

Happy crafting!
