Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!! I'm so thankful for all of you who have stopped by today! :) Thank you to all my loyal followers!!! Not a follower yet? Haven't you heard?!

I will be giving
away BLOG CANDY!!!

Yep! I'm gonna be purchasing my blog candy this weekend on Small Business Saturday!!! :) PLEASE follow me for a chance to win it--I'm thinking it may go to quite a few of you...because I tend to get carried away. Loyal followers know what I'm sayin'. ;D

Now onto the true reason of my post--this week over at Less is More, our CAS challenge is to create something using a silhouette. I originally stamped my card thinking I'd use it as a Christmas card...but it was a bit too tame for my liking. So I changed it into a sympathy card. It's perfect! :)

Now, I'm not saying I LOVE sending out sympathy cards, but I DO know how a sympathy card can ease the burden of losing a loved one just a smidgen bit. So, I am hoping that this beauty will bring comfort to the person who receives it. Luckily, I do not have anyone who needs it currently.

Here's the card (Sympathy Silhouette)~


What are your thoughts? I feel the glitter was NEEDFUL. But, I usually think glitter and bling are needful, so, yeah. Hopefully you like it as much as I do. :) Hopefully it inspires you to join in the silhouette challenge--such fun! Hop over and see what others have created--it's half the fun!!! Happy stamping! :)

These are the cards we all hate to have to have to make and we all know we'll have to at some time - this one is fabulous though

Good Luck with your 100 followers
