Q's Creative Cards: Tender Mercies II

As much as I love to give cards to show gratitude, send birthday wishes or celebrate a holiday, I know that the most important card I will ever give (or for that matter, receive), will be during the most difficult time in someone's life.

Three years ago I designed a class called "Tender Mercies".  Since then I've received many requests for  more sympathy cards.

I've been sold out of Tender Mercies (the first one) for some time, but was able to re-kit a very limited amount, so place your order now and I'll bring it to class, or ship it to you if you wish.

Classes start in May, but kits will start shipping April 12th.  Please add shipping from drop-down menu if you want it mailed.  This kit is pre-cut and ready to assemble and includes all digital elements (to create more cards) and a slideshow with step-by-step photos and instructions.

Hi Sue,

Any possibility of getting your first Tender Mercies kit ASAP? My very dear friend lost her daughter this week. A beautiful, high school senior on her way to BYU Hawaii in the fall. Her services are Wednesday morning in Alpine. I know it's asking an awful lot. I was planning to purchase a sympathy card but opened your email this morning and saw your beautiful cards and know it would give her some much needed comfort at this time. If you have it available and mailed it Monday I should get it Tuesday afternoon and can put it together and have it for Wednesday. Again, I know it's asking a lot. Just felt that it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Thank you,
Annette Redford

P.S. If you would prefer to text me, rather than email, my number is 801-920-3588

I can't thank you enough! I know you are a very busy woman and I so appreciate your phone call and generosity. I think you said it perfectly in your blog post, "we will never give or receive a more important card...." (paraphrasing). However silly it may sound, I believe it was meant for me to give your card (No matter how dark the night....) to my dear friend. It had been a couple days of many tears and little sleep. When I got up and on the computer first thing this morning there was your email announcing your "Tender Mercies" card class. I followed the link to your first class and there it was, the perfect sentiment. I'm feeling very grateful for your talents and creativity and your willingness to share it so that we may, in turn, touch someone else's life.

Thank you and God Bless,
