Cards we don't like to have to make

Hi everyone, thank you to those who left such lovely comments on previous blog posts x

Here are three Sympathy cards I made recently.  Unfortunately I have had to send two of them already in this last week.

This one I made using a image from the 'Kraftyhands' In Sympathy cd. Backing papers were from my stash, and the trellis is from Spellbinders.  The flowers I bought back last year, but can't for the life of me remember where!


Sorry about the quality of the pic for this one.  The card blank was from Kanban and both the backing paper and topper were from the same cd as before.  Didn't think it needed anything else on it to be honest.



The final one, I used the Desiree dotty embossing folder and a Memory Box die.  The stamp is from Stampendous, and the same flowers as the first, but of course, a different colour!



Until the next time ........................... take care x

I know what you mean Jane but I am sure the people who received them really appreciated a hand made card and the work and thought behind these.

Thes cards are perfect for the unfortunate occasions :-(
I get really choaked up when having to make sympathy cards, even if they aren't for people I know.
These cards would make anyone feel a bit brighter in their sad times.

So sorry you had to send two of these beautiful cards in a week. It is never easy to make these, but I would sooner do them when I am feeling good, rather than make them when I am saddened by the loss of someone loved.
