Deepest Sympathy


Most of my posts from the last couple of weeks were created way in advance so I haven't created much over the last couple of weeks.  Tonight, I can't sleep...so I decided to get up and make a couple of cards.    I'm popping in to quickly share a card inspired by the color combination below.   Unfortunately, I'll be sending this card to a co-worker whose lost their mother-in-law very unexpectedly.  My thoughts and prayers are with her and I really don't like that as quickly as I make sympathy cards they get mailed.

  10. It's beautiful, Lynn, but I totally know what you mean. I hate making sympathy cards, especially when you're feeling sympathetic towards somebody. Sometimes, that's when it's the most difficult to create, but I just used up my last sympathy card yesterday. Sigh.

  13. The hardest cards to make, but the ones that convey the most love and care. Receiving a handmade sympathy card is so touching, and echo the words you write inside.
    I love that you kept the colours in this design.
    Hugs!
