Oops! My major card faux pas!

Monday, I was called into work because a co-worker's mother had fallen ill. I, in my own special way, assumed that the illness was standard "elderly parent needs care". Unfortunately, her mother had been given only a few hours to live. Something I learned after making this card. So, I brought the card back home with me. As you can see, it's a bit too whimsical for a condolence card. I think I might send it as part of the cards that I'm planning to send for Jennifer McGuire's latest Cards For Kids drive.

Anywho, the card is intended for two card challenges
- Sketch and Stash's Sketch 26 (I tweaked it a little bit, the sentiment and cloud make the little rectangles in the top right corner.)
- Lucy's Monochromatic challenge (A very slight deviation with the ear and cheese, these were pre-colored.)

Oh, there are some new bits in my card - a new image (thanks to a Creative Commons search) and a new stamp (Sweet n' Sassy sentiment stamp from Owl Occasions). Also, the paper and the brads are all SEI Moravia leftovers from the Swappin' Sistahs' latest card swap. A great way for me to use some scraps...wait, I think I saw a scrap challenge recently. Hold please...nevermind, I can't find it now. But now, I'm determined to find it! Expect an update soon!


  1. Adorable card - perfect for Jennifer's drive. Love it. Thanks for entering my challenge.

  2. Absolutely adorable! Even though it can't be used for its original intent, it's a great card for Jennifer's drive!!! :) LOVE LOVE LOVE the little thought bubble and the cheese in the bubble!
