Card Recognition

with heartfelt sympathy and hot cocoa tag.


A friend ordered 3 sympathy cards and it took me awhile to find the inspiration, the card above was the last one I needed to make.  I hand painted the Lawn Fawn tag with water colors, used the WPlus9 flower, PTI sentiment, May Arts ribbon.





And thanks to the Facebook Coffee Lovers Group I got a nice reminder about the Merry Monday Christmas warm beverage challenge, so I used some more water colors, for the Lawnscaping challenge and made a mini hot cocoa tag with Lawn Fawn stamps and a fun collection of May Arts ribbon (who can resist the metallic velvet ribbon?).  I just looked at the tag again, it lost one of its wooden stars-- ha ha...   Hope everyone is starting their week off on the right foot....

Love the stripes on the first tag and the striking red flowers. The holiday tag is adorable.

This cup of chocolate looks so good with the marshmallows floating in it! Thanks, Erin, for sharing this with us at Merry Monday! That's a lovely sympathy card too!

lovely tags, the sympathy one is so pretty, the colours very calming. Love the mug of cocoa, this would be perfect to use on one of those 'hot chocolate in a jar' presents. x Amanda

Great tags! Love that ribbon too. What attracted me to your Merry Monday card was that fun greeting written in the hot drink's steam. So cool!
