December Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and welcome to the December Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop!  Boy is that a mouthful!

Now get ready to be inspired! There are several Alumni Designers participating this month and I know you are going to see some beautiful creations.  Follow along and leave a comment on each blog and you will be in the running to win a $25 gift certificate from Heartfelt Creations!  You have until midnight on January 3rd. 2014 to leave your comments.  The winner will be announced on January 4th.  so be sure and check back!

OK, I think I have covered all the details so here is my card for this month.



I always try and have a few sympathy cards in my card box and then when it is needed I don't have to worry about trying to decide what to say.  We don't like having to send these but they are a fact of life.

Now I'm off to visit the other designers to see what they did.  I'm sure I'm going to see so much beauty.
These girls rock!

And remember, leave a comment on as many blogs as you can.  You never know whose blog will hold the winning comment.  Your next stop should be Alissa's blog.

I really like the effect you achieved on the brick background using the pink/rose color--- I really like the arched window die -- new find for me. The stitching detail on the edges and just all the pane details makes it really special.

Very pretty card. It is sad that we have to send these but it's a part of life. I hadn't thought about using the die you used (I have some similar) for a sympathy card. It would tie in with the reason the card is being sent. thanks for sharing the idea.
