Jan, I love your sympathy cards - they're PERFECT! I just have a question - on your second one, where's that little leafy stamp from that you used for the background on the Razzleberry layer? I can't place it... and I don't think it's part of Refuge and Strength! I have that stamp set too - I love it!



Oh, I also wanted to say - Congrats on the Snow Day! We have about a foot of new snow, but it came on from Monday night through this morning, so schools weren't canceled. Doesn't make much difference to ME, but my kids are all teachers, so they LOVE those snow days! One of my sons-in-law teaches at a high school that hasn't had a snow day in many many years, though, so it's unlikely he'll ever have a Snow Day, but my other kids have all had them and enjoyed them!

Enjoy your day at home!

I very much like the color combinations! I've not venture out too much with Rich Razzleberry, but I'm going to have to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

Lucky you - a snow day. We got 12 inches of snow in Chicago and no such luck. My son was so hoping for at least a late start today but no.

Your cards are so pretty - love that color combo. You're right - I seem to need more sympathy cards than anything at certain times. These are really good ideas.


Beautiful - I like the somber richness of this colour combination, and the two totally different looks. I'm sure the recipients will appreciate the thought that went in.

Both cards are wonderfully beautiful, Jan. I love the Thoughts and Prayers set and reach for it often for sympathy cards. I'm sure your dear friends will deeply appreciate them.


Jan, both cards are beautiful and comforting to look at. I'm sure that they will uplift your friends and they will feel how much you care for them.

I TOTALLY agree about adding Rich Razzleberry. So - what are we gonna do about it? ;) LOL


Yup, I agree with the previous poster (and with you!) Rich Razzleberry deserves to be added to the standard 48 colours! I've also needed a sympathy card lately and Thoughts and Prayers is just perfect for these cards.

Great job!

Jan, i love the cards, and didn't realize how versatile Rich Razzleberry could be. I laughed when you talked about not understanding football, I was like that for years, until my son started playing. Now, I love it too! My brother, who played from third grade through twelfth,cant believe it!

Kathy Wyatt

I agree. Wonderful color combos. My fav it the first .. I do have the set and I always forget about my BigBite! Nice touch!



They are gorgeous!!! Glad you had a great relaxing day!!!

Kim P

These are both the color combo.

I definitely feel a CASE comin' on!


Perfect cards!


The cards are lovely!

Anne S

Your cards are drop dead gorgeous as always! Sorry that they are for such a sad occasion, but I'm sure that they'll be very well received!

Nancy Johnson

Beautiful cards as always. I love the color combinations. I usually don't but the in-colors, but I caved in when I saw Rich Razzleberry.

Judy McMullen

Jan, beautiful sympathy cards! I'm always looking for ideas for sympathy cards. I like the simple but elegant look of your cards.


We had a snow day in Lansing yesterday and I LOVED it!Guess what I did with part of my day... you got it! I stamped! I got some Valentines done. Very nice ideas, Jan, for sympathy cards. I have my "stand by" that I use, but I hate to give people the same card twice.So you gave me two good new ideas. I love Razzleberry, too. I would like to see ALL of the new in colors stay.

Wow I really love the look of the Razzleberry with the Artichoke. I would never have put them together. Thanks for sharing and I will be trying this combo!

Shelly Koskinen

I love the color combo on these cards. They are beautiful!

Debbie Cee

KI LOVE these razleberry's!! Beautiful. I now must have that color. Can't it be one of 48?? LOL I heard purple is the new "beige".... maybe that applies. I am SOOOO missing a post from you!! I bet your snow or iced in, or kids are sick, or you have a new address (or wish you did)... Have a Blessed Day. Debbie
