Sympathy, new life, and Christmas trees


A little bit of everything in this post...

I printed some digis a couple of weeks ago and used one of them this weekend.  This is a sympathy card using a verse from Daydream Designs.  I'm submitting this card to Word Art Wednesday #57 - giving/anything goes.


This  verse is from the Design Team Scripture Set 1



Now on to "new life"!  My niece had a baby boy in October and I put vinyl on a onesie for him...
My kids want sweatshirts that say the same thing! :)

And finally, Christmas!  We had our ladies Christmas party at church this past weekend.  I was sick most of last week so many things I had procrastinated too long to get done planned to do, I did not get done.  :/  I did manage a few paper trees for the tables that turned out ok.   I found these on Pinterest though I had to search and search for the post!  So then I pinned the actual post.  Click here to see the Pin.  Pardon me while I rant a little... Link to the POST not just the BLOG, people!! 

I'm entering my trees in Decorate to Celebrate's challenge #39 - holiday choice
Couldn't find red doilies, so used Valentine leftovers!
Cut stars on my Cricut and adhered with a toothpick
I also made the favors.  I saw and loved this one that Melissa had made, so went looking for instructions and made them using K&Co Mod Holiday double-sided DP cut to 6x6.

I forgot to take pics of the other side... it had another piece of chocolate and a tag wishing them a Merry Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

What wonderful projects!! The card is gorgeous and so comforting for those who have experienced a loss. What a lovely verse! And the onesie is so fun! You definitely should make some for your kids!! Those trees and favours are super too - and such a perfect way to dress up the tables.

Sorry you were under the weather and pray you've been fully restored to good health now!
