Muse Inspired Sympathy Cards



Last week I was in need of several sympathy cards.  I turned to the gorgeous inspiration from Joan over at the Muse Challenge.  I loved the water color feel of her card and the strong message of hope and support.  For my first card, I used pinks and purples as my friend's mother loved purples and on the day she passed she posted a gorgeous sunrise of all pinks/purples.  And I love the Irish Blessing as a message of love and support. For the second card, I went with the orange and yellow inspiration from Joan's card.  My co-worker lost her grandmother who had lived to 100!  
Love how both of these came together so quickly.

I think the purple card got linked to Muse - is that what you intended? Both are beautiful, serene and perfect as sympathy cards! Glad you joined us at Muse this week, Lynn!

I'm late on this post but it seems you have needed a lot of sympathy cards lately, Lynn. You make such beautiful ones that I'm sure the families appreciate that you take time to make a card just for them.
