Birthday & Sympathy cards with C1395

I have gotton a little behind on my cards lately so I figured this would be a good weekend for working in my scrapbook room, I spent yesterday cleaning and made a couple of cards and I have spent this morning working on more cards. The ones in this post are some from today. Most of the time I try do only one of a kind cards and not sets, but I have a few birthdays coming up and thought a set would be good, as for the set of sympathy cards well things have been a little sad at work lately. I will have s second post later with more cards.

I wanted something nice but simply for these sympathy cards, I decided to go with just the black and white and I liked how they turned out.
