Deepest Sympathy {and a short blogging break}


I thought I'd play along with one more of the Winnie & Walter First Birthday Bash challenges. I loved the soft grays and blues paired with the white in Laura's inspiration collage.  I was in need of a sympathy card for a co-worker who lost her father-in-law.  He had been ill for quite some time.  The inspiration photo was perfect for a sympathy card.

I've had fun playing along with their challenges this month!  Hope you are getting time to sneak into your craft rooms!  I'll be back on Thursday for Time Out and Fusion, but might not have any cards for the remainder of the week and early into next week. The kids activities are super busy right now and I'm traveling for work this week...so time in the craft room had to give over this weekend and time for commenting has limited, but I am checking out all your gorgeous creations!

What a beautiful card, Lynn! It's a perfect sympathy card. I hear you on the kids' activities and the work travel getting in the way of crafting. ;-) And I'm not one to complain about anyone else not commenting, given my recent behaviour!

Love all that white space. And you're not allowed to feel guilty for not posting as many cards (have you seen my consistency this month? And I feel zero guilt!).

Sympathy cards are so hard to make, and you've made a really wonderful one here. The colors are perfect, and the simplicity of this design is perfect for your co-worker. We'll miss you, but do understand about work and kids. Take a bit of time for yourself too....! Bev
