Craft a cute maple leaf card for your befriended tree hugger. This card would be perfect in Fall, since leaves are then falling off the trees. The leaves are typically red or orange colored, just like the background of this greeting card.
In Fall 2013 a family member was told she suffers from a life-threatening disease. She had to stay in the hospital to receive treatments. Family and friends visited her daily and gave her happy greeting cards, no sad “get well” cards. My sister and I also paid our family member a visit, on October 31th. For that occasion I crafted a Fall theme greeting card.
