Sympathy Card Using CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts with Blue Skies Paper Special

Hello Friends!  It seems the weather has turned upside down again, across the U.S.  I hope you are doing well and finding time to craft.  I ventured out today to drop some cards off at the post office and to drive my car for a few minutes again.  I called a local Bundt cake store and was able to pick up a mini Bundt cake at curbside.  I have been craving cake for a while now.  LOL!

I found out last night that a friend of mine lost her mother a few days ago.  I created another Sympathy card using CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts - Z3725.  It seems the perfect image for any occasion.  I wanted to use more of our CTMH Blue Skies paper pack - CC5026 with the shiny patterned cardstock to match.  I love it when they create things that match like this.  It makes it easier to create.  

(It has a pattern and shiny on one side and regular cardstock on the other side) 
Available till May 31, 2020 or while supplies last.
