It seems that there are has been many reasons to have sympathy for other this past month. I heard last night that Carl Malden passed away. That makes 5 celebrities in less than a month. Not to mention the friends who have lost loves ones recently.

My husband has been able to keep in contact with his best friend during high school. Which is a huge feat considering my husband has moved around quite a bit since leaving high school. Facebook can truly be a wonderful tool if you use it correctly.

Last Saturday I went on to do some "farming", yes I got involved in farm town on Facebook. When I did I saw some sad comments from my husband's high school buddy and his wife. Not long after that we got a phone call. My husband's buddy lost his mother. It is a sad thing. She has had several issues with her health and within the last few month was diagnosed with lung cancer. They also believe that she may have had a bout of pneumonia.

My husband lost his father to Alzheimer's just over a year ago so he understood what his friend was going through. But seeing as they are men they didn't talk much.

I was instructed to make them a card. I meant to show this card yesterday but I woke up with a migraine. I suffer from migraines so being pregnant makes them even worse. Thankfully this wasn't a bad one and I was able to feel like a human being for the second half of the day.

I decided to go very simple and calming with this card. The bird filigree is from a new stamp company I found at Michael's. Scrappy Cat. They are clear stamps and I might have to get a few more. They are only $4.99 for a set AND I got to use a 40% off coupon to get my first set.

Let's hope and pray that there will be no more sympathy cards for a long time.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
