Default Important and Tragic Info from theCardLadies

Hello SCS old and new friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I have to share with you all that our family suffered a tragic loss this weekend... our home caught on fire and we lost everything including our 3 beloved poodles. My husband and I were about 30 seconds away from death ourselves, and I have just gotten home from the hospital. We both had severe burns, but mine were bad enough to keep me in observation for a couple of days. Now is the time to be thankful we both made it and are ok.

Being a home based business, that means theCardLadies is out of business, at least for now, and I don't know right now what our future holds. Ironic that it is on the eave of the debut of the member companies. But I have been blessed with 7+ good years as a vendor for a craft and crafters that I loved. I am very grateful.

I regret that my exclusive templates and tools won't be available for you anymore, several of you were waiting until Monday to buy and had told me so. And there are about 8 folks that are impacted because their orders burnt up. And of course they will be refunded. Including any new orders that have come in since Saturday morning. Fortunately, I worked my butt off last week and was really close to caught up, ready for Monday.

So thanks again for the warm welcome I got here, your business and friendship over these last seven years, and please say a little prayer for our sweet fur babies. that is the hardest loss of all.

I am so sorry to hear this and the loss of your fur babies. Having 4 fur kids of my own, I know how hard this must be. Thank God you and your husband got out alive, hurt, but alive. May your burns continue to heal and may He bless you as you rebuild.

How devastating!! I'm sorry for your terrible loss, company and your special fur babies. I can't imagine. I am so glad you were saved from even more tragedy by coming out of it alive. I haven't purchased from you but checked your site often. I have heard many good things about your company. Maybe in time, healing physically and emotionally from this, you may someday try this venture again. Many prayers to you and your family.

Default So Very Sorry!

I can't believe this. I had just received the "www.theCardLadies.com has sent you a package" email on Friday. I am so sorry! I know everything but your three babies can be replaced. How devastating for you. I'm hopeful that they're waiting for you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

You're in my thought and prayers....

(((Tamra))) I'm so sorry to hear your terrible news. Losing our furry family members in such a way must be so hard! I'm so thankful you and your husband are safe, if not unscathed. The material stuff can be re-done, however slowly it comes. We'll be thinkin' of you.

Ohhhhh, {{{{{{{{Tamra}}}}}}}},

I am so saddened to hear of this tragic and traumatic loss. I will certainly keep you and your husband on my heart as you face this great sadness. I certainly understand personal loss through the fire of a home, as I was tragically impacted by it many years ago. So sorry to hear of this.

Oh, Tamra. This is so, so sad and tragic, to be sure, on so many levels. As you take the time to heal and also grieve all you've lost, I know you'll be grateful that you and your DH were spared. Know that you have the love and support of your SCS friends, and that we will do whatever we can to help you through this terrible time. {{{{{Tamra and the Card Ladies}}}}}

I am so sorry for your loss. May you meet up with your fur babies at the Rainbow Bridge, and may your business come back to bless us all (it was AWESOME) -- but most of all, I thank God that you are ok, and you will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers for healing and health, and recovery on all fronts.
