Life Happens



There are three things besides taxes that happen in life…. babies, weddings, and death.   At some point, we all need one of these cards.  Unfortunately for me, I need a sympathy card.  My cousin had been trying to get a hold of me yesterday to no avail.  Between work and golf, I was not around and she didn’t have my cell phone number.  So this morning I found an email to telling me her mom had passed away.  They had just put her in hospice and knew the time was coming to say goodbye.  She was my mother’s sister-in-law and this leaves my mother’s brother as the last living siblings of eight.  It is so sad to see that generation leaving us.

I found the perfect stamp that was in the Occasions Catalog and will be in the Annual Catalog.  So if you didn’t get it, you will have another chance.  The stamp set I am referring to is Southern Serenade.  You will find this stamp set so versatile that you will be reaching for it. It has wonderful words, but no sympathy words.  I used Rose Wonder which will be retiring.  I absolutely love that stamp set for the words and beautiful rose.  If you have not purchased that stamp set, you need to order it today!  Just click here to order all the Retired items.
