I wanted to let her know I was sad for her loss, so I made her a sympathy card. Using photo-quality paper, I printed out a photograph she had taken of her cat and fancied up the corners with a pretty punch. She loves pink and green together, so I layered those colors onto a blank card I picked up at Michael's (one of a package of 8) and then glued a metal "remember" embellishment under the photo. My Tumblr friend was very touched by the gesture.
I hadn't made a greeting card in forever, and although it was a sad occasion, I very much enjoyed making it. With the price of cards these days, I'm looking forward to doing this more often.
And I'm happy to report, my Tumblr friend became a foster mom to a little dog through her local animal shelter. Within a week or so she made it official by adopting the little guy and has begun posting photos of him and his sweet self. I love happy endings!
