Day For Sympathy

Well, this year has started off not.so.good.  You know how they say "it" comes in 3's?  Well unfortunately, this year has started with 3 awful occurrences; my cousin's passing [from cancer], my friend's husband [unexpectedly], and my other friend's father in law.  It's so sad when you lose loved ones, hopefully, my cards show my support.

 I used Hero Arts flowers with water coloring for a soft muted look.  Appropriate for a sympathy card.

 For these next 2 cards, I used extra water colored background panels that I had [to use on future cards.]  I wasn't planning on sympathy cards, but the muted background works perfectly, along with the HUGS die-namic from MFT.


And finally, my last card using Simon Says die cut, along with a beautiful butterfly.

Not the happiest post, but these type of cards are [unfortunately] needed.  I do hope the recipients know I am thinking and praying for them.


Thanks for stopping by~

So sorry to hear of your losses. I also had to mail out three sympathy cards in the past month. This time of year it's especially hard. You did a wonderful job on all your cards and I'm sure they brought comfort to the families during their most difficult time. xx
