Some of you may remember my posts about the “Swim Team”. My kids go swimming 3 days a week. On Fridays there is a group of ladies who swim at the same time. Most are in their 80’s. Mind you, none of them swim. :O) They walk in the warm pool and visit. My husband refers to them as the Swim Team. A couple of times a year I make batches of cards and give about a half-dozen cards to each of the Swim Team members, my mom, and a few other older friends. They love them! They love to send cards but it is harder for them to shop for cards and the price of a card astounds them. So because I am making close to 100 cards some of them need to be fairly simple. And my mom, who will be 90 in March tells me she needs sympathy cards “in bulk”. :O) Just using a stack of 4×6 paper and one simple vinyl design allowed me to whip these cards up in no time. Here is the file for “With Sympathy” with sympathy team knk

And last but not least, a childhood friend was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. The good news is that it was found early and the prognosis is good. I had made this card a while back so I don’t remember what font was used but I do remember that I cut it from a black leather looking contact paper. It has such great texture, I love how it looks. Still sub-zero here with another round of -30+ windchill coming our way, the perfect time to stay inside and keep my KNK warm.
