You're in my thoughts & Prayers!

Hello again!

Can you believe this is the last day of April already?  Do you have your May baskets ready to go? I wonder how many young families still celebrate May Day?  I have lots of fond memories of May Day when I was young!  The popcorn & candy that you filled the baskets with....always putting EXTRA candy in the baskets of anyone you liked, of course!  We spent a lot of happy hours making the baskets, popping the corn & filling & delivering them.  I hope this charming tradition has survived!

Today I am sharing a sympathy card made with a new die. It caught my eye the minute I first saw it & I knew it would join my collection at some point.  I decided it would be a good sympathy card for a man.  Instead of mounting the triptych directly on the front, I cut the squares on the front & mounted the tree inside. Hopefully, the two pictures will show what I did.

I used the Poppy Stamps Tree Triptych die for this card.

Back tomorrow with something fun!


  1. Clever! The color paper you used is a beautiful shade of blue - at least on my pc that is how it looks. Have a great weekend - we are off to the tournaments! Hugs

  2. A very beautiful card. Great colors and I love the trees.

  3. It does make the perfect masculine sympathy card. I remember seeing this die when it first came out. I wasn't sure exactly what it would look like in use, but now I see how awesome it is. I really love this, Sherri. Very nice with the windows on the front panel and the trees inside.

  4. This is just beautiful. The cuts to expose the inside adds to it's beauty. I didn't see this one when I was over.
