Saying Good bye!

Envelope and card.
    Members of our church are moving to Massachusetts  to be closer to their son. We are having a good -bye party for them after church so I have been working on a card that will tell them how much we are going to miss them.  Gail and Truman have been such a wonderful blessing to us and to my parents. We are going to miss them alot.

   I found this card and cased it from a blog that I have lost the address to, so I cannot link to it. I hope they will forgive me for not mentioning them. It's a great design. I changed it slightly, but it's essentially the same. I also wanted to add some drama to the envelope, too.  On the envelope I just continued the theme and made a few more trees with autumn leaves from the Branch Out set.
     I used Stampin Up's Branch Out set. I love the tree in this set. I also used the stamps for the sentiments  from Short & Sweet and Upsy Daisy. It's a fun card to make since you can use different patterned paper of the hills.
   On the envelope I just continued the theme and made a few more trees with Autumn leaves from the Branch Out set.
    I found a poem and changed a few words here and there to help make
Praying for a smooth move.
it apply to our friends' move. I used the butterflies from the stamp set.
   I didn't have room to add our names to the bottom, so I used my Spellbinders die cut to add it to the top with our names typed out.
I hope they like the card because it expresses how we all feel about them. They will be sorely missed.
