Calendar Girls Challenge

It is the 28th of the month, so I am here to welcome you to another round with the Calendar Girls! We are now in our fourth year of posting and it has been a blast.  Wonderful Challenges--Great Fun--Sweet Creations--and Awesome Friendships!

Who are the Calendar Girls? We are a group of bloggers who want to have a place where friendships blossom, creativity abounds, and encouragement prevails! In keeping with that dream, this blog group has been created so we will have a place to interact and enjoy being fellow bloggers.  Terry is the hostess this month and she posted the following challenge:

I have recently (within 2 weeks time) had 3 friends lose parents. Very sad situations for all of them.

With that and the anniversary of 9-11 coming up I would like you all to create a Sympathy card.

Unfortunately, we will all need them at some point. It's a sad thought, but reality.

As an added challenge, I would like you all to share a memory of someone you lost and what that person did to change your life.

I inked up a couple older Gina K stamps that I have and they have never been used.  I really like the sentiment and know who I will send it to yet this year!

Here is the inside of my card: 

I hope Terry and the other Calendar Girls like my card!

Cardstock/Patterned Paper—Stampin' Up So Saffron, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Tall Tales Designer Series Paper

Barb, this is a beauty. I love the cheerfulness of the flowers, giving the card a sense of love and support behind it and the message. Great job!

What a great sentiment. I like how the bow is tied too! The layout is great and the papers are fun. Good job with the challenge!
