A little Sympathy!

Hello everyone! :) I needed a sympathy card recently and I don't know about you, but I always struggle with these. I always feel like I am fumbling through them! It doesn't seem to matter how straight the cuts are or how perfectly everything lines up the card just still seems so inadequate to me. When someone passes away there just do not truly seem to be any right words. To try to gush something out and wrap it up in a nice package like a card just feels really tough to me. I do it anyhow, because it is the little thing I can offer. I made this one for hubby's step dad. He lost his mom suddenly to a brain hemorrhage last week. It was a sad thing. He is such a nice guy and it was tough watching him have to go through this. I tried to keep it very simple. This is the card I made:

Paper: SU! Wild Wasabi, Sahara Sand and Whisper White
Stamps: SU! Stem Silhouettes, Studio G
Ink: SU Bravo Burgundy
Extras: SU! Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Pop Dots and Bling

Have a great night! I will be back soonest! :)

Hi AM!
Yes, I struggle with those too! So sorry that you had the need for this type of card, but it is simple and elegant, and will touch those who receive it.

It's a great card. You did wonderfully.

I agree, I always have trouble with these as well. You did a really great job and I think for Sympathy cards simple is the way to go.

Here is a sympathy card I made this week for a friend who lost her hubby.

I agree...they are tough to make....but it's the thought in sending them that means the most!

Love the simplicity of yours, peaceful colors!

Hope you are having a great summer!
