I needed to make a sympathy card for my childhood Sunday school teacher who just lost her husband.  This wonderful woman gives the best hugs in all the world!  I just wish I could return the favor right now. 
I used the level one hostess set From the Garden and a piece of Berry Bliss DSP.  The card base is the wonderful Shimmery White card stock.  I copied the layout on page 21 of the catalog – changing just a few things – I used the  slider from the Hodgepodge Hardware Kit and the Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched ribbon and glitter.  You can see the glitter in the center – but there is glitter on the image too.  The sentiment is from the retired set Brighter Tomorrow and is embossed.  I stamped it with Chocolate Chip Craft and embossed it in clear.  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
