I love showing off my very talented Candy Hearts team members. In the next several days I’ll be sharing cards made by some of them for our March team gathering. There was a creative challenge to make a sympathy card. They aren’t fun to make, but it’s good to have them on hand. Today I’m sharing a sympathy card made by Debbie Catlett of Chattanooga, TN. She used the Thought & Prayers stamp set and the Pretty Label Punch to create this very elegant card.

 

Here’s what she made:
