Sympathy card

Hello, how are you today?  I attended my demo meeting this weekend and one of the things we do is to have a swap.  The theme changes every month and this month it was for sympathy cards.  I don't like to make these cards, because it usually means someone is sad.  I do make them and give them though because although they never seem like a big enough gesture they at least let the people receiving them know that they are not alone.  It seemed appropriate to post this today with the terrible senseless tragedy that happened in Boston yesterday.  As with most sad situations words  seem inadequate,  but the sentiment is certainly there.  My heart and warmest thoughts go out to the people of Boston and their very sad day yesterday.

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Soft Suede and Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede
Punches and Dies: Square Lattice EF and 1 3/4" Circle punch
Extras: Sponges

Take a minute to squeeze the people that mean the most to you today.  It is really important.  I will be back soonest with more to share.

AM, I am working on sympathy cards today too. Just not my fave, I am with you.

I really like the simplicity of the image and how you made it stand out a bit with the Stickles (?). The sponged embossing folder looks good too.

Hugs my friend.

Very nice card. I like the inked edges on the embossing.

Yes, sympathy cards are so hard to do, but you have made a very nice one. Very simple and beautiful.

This is beautiful! Sympathy cards are ones that I always try to have on hand because it's so hard to come up with something suitable on short notice. Makes it a little easier to focus on the message...
