Simply Crafts Challenge - Kite







Todays card was for the Simply Crafts Challenge. We were to use the Kite from Creat a Critter.



I loved all the happy, joyful cards everyone was doing and almost went in that direction. But then I found out the mother of a friend at work had died. I thought the kite was a nice symbol for flying up to heaven. And I was proud of myself of thinking out of the box! ;)


I also used my butterfly punch on the side. Have not used this punch in a while and did not want to lose it to one of my peeps. We have a rule that if you don't use it in 6 months you lose it to them! So at least that is one thing I get to keep! :)

Sympathy cards are so hard to make, I think. You did a wonderful job. TFS good luck in the challenges.
I've also left you a blog award over on my blog.
