Sympathy

It seems the older I get the more sympathy cards I need.  Guess that's just a fact of life.


The challenge at Addicted to CAS has the code word "Flower" so I'll enter this in their challenge.
I used the Love and Sympathy set from SU.  The background was stamped in Soft Suede and the image was stamped using markers.  I added a piece of organza ribbon to finish it off.





Thanks for stopping by.................
Lynn

This is so soft and subtle, and just perfect for such an occasion. It's always sad to have to make sympathy cards, but they're appreciated I'm sure.

Well done Lynn. This is a lovely card and for obvious reasons, sympathy are the hardest ones to make. I can't bring myself to make them ahead of time but I must... yesterday I needed 5 of them and you are right, the older we get, the more we seem to need.
