I just needed to make some cards for the store. I find it really hard to do sympathy cards, but they sell so I need to do them. I've been thinking about retirement cards to because people have asked for them but I'm not sure what to do for them.

So today is a Costco day. I need to get refreshments for Saturday's get together as well as for my Young Women's Basketball tournament which is Friday and Saturday (had to get a sub for Saturday). Busy, busy weekend coming up. Travis just found out that he's supposed to attend this Boy Scout Training thing on Saturday which I was peaved about because I had asked him a month ago to do something with the kiddos. Jakob also has a bowling birthday party to attend Saturday afternoon. I know I should just be supportive but I have to admit frustration with last minute announcements about training.

Very nice cards. Sympathy cards are so difficult to make. The sentiment on this card is so perfect.

It's never fun when our plan are changed at the last minute! I hope you will all find a way to work this out and that everyone will be please with the solution. You are right Sympathy card are hard to make... but they are useful even if we never want to need them! Good luck on everything.

Sympathy cards are hard for me too, as would be retirement. I love the colors you chose in both of these cards. Very pretty.

I love Costco days, but I dread taking the kids along with me. It's so fun to browse the books and scrapbooking aisle.

I hope you get to relax after such a busy weekend.

THanks for the seet comment on my blog. I have been kind of bad at updating. I love your blog. You are really talented and I live the layout of your little girl giving her brother a kiss. I like how you used the swirls as a heart. Too cute!

Excellent sympathy card! Those are hard! I love the colors of the celebrate card.

That is soooo frustrating to have to change your arrangements last minute. Especially when you have planned so carefully!
