  2. Hi, I'm sending my card to my niece's son. Does that make him my grand nephew or my great nephew? Hope he likes it.

  3. My card is going to my daughter in love for her birthday this week! ~ Tricia

  4. My card is for a friend to mail to one of her college-aged girls... I always loved fall, so I'm hoping one of the (2) girls is a fall-lover... if not, their mom can write a little Thanksgiving note!

  5. My card will sent to a friend to cheer her up.

  6. My sympathy card is for a friend from my Bible study whose mom died. So sad, and yet we can celebrate the fact that she was a believer and is now with Jesus.

  7. Great sketch. I had fun working with it. The color combination was also perfect for my card and digital stamps.

  8. I'll send my card #12 to a friend. Love your grumplings!

  9. I am including my card with my Christmas bundle for the Caring Hearts Card Drive, Oct. 3 -Nov. 27. I hope it brings someone a little Christmas joy!
    Take care!

  10. My card is going to my kids school's secretary who is having a tough year.

  11. My card is going to my Brother & Sister-in-Law for Christmas since I will not see them this year.
