Not Just Any Sympathy/Thank You Card

For those of you who don't already know, didn't hear from me personally or get word through another source, on January 28, 2010, my mom entered heaven! She was a sweet, beautiful, spunky, fiercely independent 87 year old who lived life until she died, peacefully, in her sleep. You can read more at my other blog post if you care to. We will miss her like crazy, but our loss is heaven's gain! So now you better understand why these are not just any sympathy/thank you cards ... they are more than special to me, carrying a message from my heart along with a keepsake picture that was taken of her and I just this past Christmas Day! Mom's favorite color was pink, and she loved pink carnations -- which was my card inspiration.
My creative juices are still running through the shabby-chic/vintage phase, so I started with Rustic Cream cardstock, and shot it with my newest favorite glimmer mist, Vanilla Breeze (ooooh so glimmery, yummy!). The harlequin diamond background stamp, topped with PTI's Background Basics-Hearts -- just makes mush outa me. I LOVE IT! A very simple design, really!
A computer generated thank you message -- when words fail and hand-writing isn't so sure of oneself -- edged with vintage chamomile tea dye ink (PTI). My mom and I spent Christmas Day making THIS very card pouch design -- for some birthdays coming up --- namely, hers! But she didn't know that that's what I was doing at the time we were both making one! LOL A few days later, she grinned with bright blue sparkling eyes when we gathered at Red Lobster and she saw my card that "we" had made together! Two giggling girlfriends we were!
I truly believe that Karen Lockhart's stamp "...live each day on purpose ..." must have been made for my momma! No one did it better, for 87 years!
Until we meet again in the heavenlies ...

Oh Kay I am SO Saddened by your loss! Now I know I'll never use those beautiful crochet flowers you sent me that your mom made ... they are just too beautiful & precious! I will think of her every time I look at them. They are hanging on my pegboard and every time I think I will use one, I just can't part with them!!
Please know you are in my thoughts & prayers!! She surely will be missed!!
What a beautiful sympathy/thank you, you have created here! She would be pleased I'm sure!! Hugs to you!!!

So sorry to hear about the lose of your mother. I too have some of those lovely crocheted flowers. Makes me cry just thinking about them. I still haven't unpacked everything from my recent move, so my mission this weekend is to unpack some more til I find them. You sent me a beautiful card when my dad passed away, I have it in front of me now. You mentioned your mum in it!! Love the thankyou notes you made with and for your mum. Very special.

[b]Astro220 + dog module DC30 (комплект)[/b]

Всепогодный навигатор с функцией Dog Tracker поможет вам не потерять из вида вашего питомца даже в том случае, если собака погналась за какой-нибудь не в меру шустрой белкой. Радиус действия передатчика ошейника - до 8км.


Устройство Garmin Astro GPS Dog Tracker поможет вам не потерять из вида вашего питомца даже в том случае, если собака погналась за какой-нибудь не в меру шустрой белкой.
Официально, GPS-система Garmin Astro предназначена для охотничьих собак, однако кто может помешать вам нацепить ее на ошейник вашего пекинеса, если вы о нем беспокоитесь?

Система Astro GPS состоит из двух основных частей - беспроводного передатчика DC30 и GPS Astro с цветным экраном. Использовать систему очень просто - следует просто выйти во двор, зафиксировать спутниковый сигнал и одеть ошейник на вашу собаку. DC30 передает сигналы о своем местоположении каждые 5-10-30 секунд, а отслеживать перемещения можно на цветной карте наладонника.
Кроме этого, на экране отображается компас, стрелка которого указывает направление по отношению к передатчику, а также текущее статус-состояние вашего четвероногого друга (в движении / стоит на месте). А если ваш питомец пересечет установленные вами границы, система Garmin Astro GPS Dog Tracker незамедлительно сообщит вам об этом звуковым сигналом
