Ok, Sympathy cards have just not been in my collection of designs.....seems the last type of card I think about creating. Unfortunately, this month has seen several deaths for family members of friends of mine. It's so tough to lose loved ones, and thank goodness, I haven't had to deal that with personally for quite some time. My heart goes out to those who have to share in that grief.

These designs called for simplicity, and so I tried it with two different stamps/colors. You decide which you think makes the cut. :-) One stamp is from a new stamp set and the other is from a Hostess stamp set....yes, I'm pulling from sets I haven't used a lot of or haven't used yet! :-)

These designs, of course, can be used for many other occasions too! Enjoy!

It's HERE!!!

Can you tell I'm so EXTREMELY excited?! I AM!! I just LOVE MDS!!

You have different versions to choose from....whether you are buying it new, updating your current MDS with the new capablities OR updating your current MDS with TONS of new stamp set images, paper, embellishments, etc.

 Even though I have purchased MANY images for my current MDS, the MDS 2 upgrade with over $500 worth of new images was STILL a much better deal for me even with over 20 duplicates! There is just SO MUCH great stuff on it!

To add to the excitement......MDS has a wonderful promotion going on all your printables this month!! 31% OFF for 31 Days!!!

So, hurry up and go check it out!! :-)
