This is what the inside of the card looks like...
I also created a matching album that translates to" Do you speak French?". I love buying those $1 photo albums from Wal-mart that has open sleeves for the front and back cover so you can re-decorate it to your heart's content. I also put together a gift bag for her that included chocolates with French phrases on it, jelly made in France, and some other sweet French goodies. I was so late in sending the package that I did not get a chance to take a picture of the whole gift set.

HIS NEXT JOURNEY...
Cracked Glass technique on the image. This is the first time I am using a Thomas Kinkade stamp. I've always admired them, but felt too intimidated. This stamp has such a serene scene that it was perfect for the card. I printed out a poem I found on SCS on the backside of the front card. This is my "go to" poem when I have to make a sympathy card.
Bob will be sorely missed! I will always remember his smiling face!
SOMEONE CARES...This is the card I created for Gerry. Again, I kept the front rather simple so as not take away from the image.
The sentiment is stamped on the back side of the front of the card using PTI Everyday Blessings. My husband even said that this was his most favorite card yet!

Lately, I have been finishing the inside of the cards to match the front. I usually don't like to clutter the inside part so that I can write my novel to the person I am giving the card to - LOL! So this is the only time you will see lots of white space.
I've got more to post after I feed the kids so stand by!

I just wanted to post a quick Happy Mother's Day to all of my crafting friends! Enjoy your day...every woman regardless if you are a mom or not, should be celebrated! I have some cards I need to post, but I am having trouble with the software I usually format them in so stay tuned! I'll leave you with this sweet poem I found online...
"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"
A word that means the world to me.
--Howard Johnson (c. 1915)
