Our "day-cation" and a Sympathy card

Good morning! 
Wow, I hope the weekend has been treating you well! We took another mini "day-cation" this last Saturday to South Pass City, a historic site here in Wyoming for their annual Gold Rush days. The kiddos had fun panning for gold and checking out all of the historic buildings. They even got a "job" at the printing press and made themselves each a bookmark. :) Oh...and they did find a few super small flakes of gold!
Although we didn't stay very long, it was nice to get out of the house again. Especially for me, since Friday was a particularly bad day for me, as one of my bosses passed away. What a coincidence it was actually Friday the 13th. So when we returned from our "day-cation" I had to head on down to my craft room to make some sympathy cards. And working all morning on sympathy cards really took away my craft mojo for the rest of the day.

But I was able to finish this one for one of my co-workers, and wanted to share it. I used the newer Simple Sayings stamp set from those fabulous ladies over at Jaded Blossom.
