Sympathy Card Using Anna Griffin Fantastic Flip Cards

Hello friends!  How is life treating you?  Good I hope.  I created this last month; but just now posting it.  

Sometimes I just need to make some quick and easy cards for emergencies.  I keep a stock of Anna Griffin Flip cards just for that purpose.  I also own the dies; which is great when you want to use one of your own papers.  If I need a card with stickers and everything ready to assemble; I use one of these. Plus, I love her gorgeous flip cards. Sometimes I feel like I am cheating when I use these card kits.  LOL!  But, there is still some creativity involved in making them.  It took me a couple days; even using this card kit.  LOL!  I have days when even an easy card kit doesn't work for me.  But, I do not like to send store bought cards unless I have to.  

I needed a sympathy card for my granddaughter - Gabrielle's, grandmother in Florida; as she lost her husband, Bobby on Nov. 15th.  It is a very tough time for all of us; but I hope this card makes her smile for a little while.  Plus, these cards offer a place inside to write a personal message; which is also very nice.
