One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

MIM # 236 A La Carte

If you didn't get a chance to play along with every single MIM this year, now is your chance to try a technique.  Go HERE to check out all the MIM's for the year.
I chose Dawn's stamping with neutrals
I needed some sympathy cards, and neutral's are just the thing for sympathy!
I pulled out Winter Woods and that cute little chickadee!  "She" was stamped with soft stone and memento black.  The branches were stamped with kraft and stormy sea.
My sentiment is from Boutique Borders:  Sympathy!

Thanks for taking a look, have a great week!
Heart Hugs.
