Sympathy Card Using CTMH Geometric Grids Thin Cuts and more

Hello Friends!  Isn't this weather crazy? I hope everyone is doing well.  We are having cooler weather again; but I heard it was warming up again in Southern CA.  It was only 55 degrees yesterday and I think it was 72 today.  It was supposed to be in the 80's but I am glad it didn't reach that hot.  

I created this Sympathy card a few months ago; but many of the CTMH products are still available, some of them are limited supplies.  I love this CTMH Geometric Grids Thin Cuts - Z3894 and also the birdhouse; which is part of the CTMH Sending WellWishes Stamp & Thin Cuts Z3915.  They were both still available when I wrote this post.

  13. What a wonderful and unique sympathy card, I like the geometric background and the colours you used - not the usual black, but also not too bright and cheerful. The bird with the birdhouse is such a great motif, too. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

    Hugs, Veronika
