Sympathy Card from Lori's Garden

I made this card with my Imagine and Lori's Garden cartridge. I love that cartridge and like the way the card turned out. Sympathy cards are so hard to make , though. In this case the card is for a young man who lost his new wife to a horrible accident...truly a sad situation.  I hope he'll find some  small degree of comfort from knowing that so many people care.

Dollar Tree Adhesive Paper Covered Shoe Box

 A while back I found this adhesive backed paper at the Dollar Tree. It kind of reminded me of the wallpaper my parents had in their room when I was little...the same kind of floral pattern, anyway. I bought it with no idea how or if I would ever use it.  Later on I decided to use it to cover a shoe box and use the box  to store my TENS unit and extra pads.  This is the result.  Somehow I managed to line it up just right and the lid actually matches up to the bottom of the  box...that was totally by accident to be honest. For some reason I love this box and it makes me smile every time I see it. If you're familiar with my cards and other projects that I've posted here you know this is not my usual style......maybe my loving the box is telling me that I need to branch out some and that my taste includes a wider variety of patterns and styles than I thought. Hmmmmm....something to think about....
