Tree & Ferns Sympathy Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Another loved one has passed away. It is so sad when this happens. I know it is a part of life, but it doesn't make it any easier. And this person wasn't even related to me, but I still felt sad. I needed three sympathy cards.

One card needed to be masculine. I showed hub a few options but he didn't like any of them. I made this from the "Rooted In Nature" bundle. I like to try to use...

OnStage Make & take Alternative | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Though OnStage is behind me now, I am still wrapping up bits and pieces of it. What a fabulous experience it was! It wasn't all perfect of course. The weather the first three days was oppressive, but it had been that way since I first arrived in Florida a few weeks ago. The food at the venue was inconsistent at best.
