Hi Peeps!  I am pleased to say that I may have fixed my computer problem.  Let's see if this post works.  

Thoughtful Branches Jim - 1 (1)

Thoughtful Branches is a wonderful stamp set that can be used in so many ways.  Unfortunately, my Sister-In-Law Maria passed away and I needed a sympathy card for my brother.  And, I turned to Thoughtful Branches, Petals & Paisleys Specialty designer Series Paper along with some Copper Foil Sheets.

 I think that Maria would have liked this card.  She loved to receive cards in the mail.  As you can see, I forgot to photograph it until after I had written inside it.

The combination of the Thoughtful Branches Thinlits Dies & the  Die Brush make it easy to create the Copper Foil Tree that is the centerpiece of my card.

Because I cut a few Paisleys from Copper Foil, I put one on the inside of the card & one on the envelope.

Today is my birthday.  I had planned on posting a birthday card for fun but sometimes life gets in the way.  Maria was a dear soul and she will definitely be missed.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
