With Heartfelt Sympathy


Sadly, there are often times we need a special sympathy card and it's good to be prepared with a supply on hand.  It seems that I'm usually creating them as I need them, and such is the case this evening.   This is for a dear friend who lost her sister to cancer. 

Do you recognize the layout?  It is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch that I used yesterday, but I've flipped it to put the sentiment in the oval.   I love this layout and you'll probably be seeing more of it! 

Not much to chat about tonight and I've got some things to accomplish so I'm making this brief.  Thanks soooo much for stopping by!   


Have a blessed day!

It seems like I have been making more sympathy cards than anything else lately. Thanks for sharing - I love this set and I love your beautiful card. Heard on the news about the 2 kids that lost their lives in a house fire up there in Norfolk, so sad. Hope you have a good week.

This is gorgeous, Pam. Such a soft feel to it and your sponging is fabulous. Love the colours you used and the stitching is a fabulous touch. I'm sure your friend will find comfort in your card and support during this difficult time.

This is a stunning card, Pam. I know, it's so hard to create these kinds of cards but the papers and elegance are just the right touches. I love this!
