Sympathy Card Using Anna Griffin Charming Vintage Collage Toppers

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well; and enjoying fall weather by now.  It is supposed to be a little cooler here in Southern CA today; the upper 80's rather than 90's and 100's.  I can't believe it is still so hot.  I am ready for fall weather. 

I created several cards in the past few months; and thought I would share one of them.  I am taking a break from my two Design teams; but I still want to give you something to enjoy while I am taking this break.

I love CTMH and I love stamping and coloring; but I also love card kits that are easy to use. It makes my life so much easier; especially when I need a card quickly; like this Sympathy card.  I just love pretty cards; and I love the toppers that are already colored and foiled.  

Be sure to scroll down for the CTMH October special this month; which is "Punny Pals" card kit; which includes the 13 dies for cutting all the cute little critters.  The "Punny Pals" stamp set is an "Operation Smiles" stamp set; which means $7.00 from each stamp set sold; is sent to Operation Smiles for helping children in that program.  The stamp set is sold separately.  You can also purchase the dies separately; if you don't want the full card kit.  Click here for more details.
