With Sympathy

Hi!

{This is my second post of the day. For The Kraft Journal Sketch Challenge...you can scroll down or click here...hope you check it out and play along with us}


As many of you know from my post last week, I had to make a sympathy card for my husband's co-worker. Here is the other card for his other co-worker who also lost his father. They are so hard for me to make. It's hard knowing this person just lost a parent. 

I used the sketch from Cardabilites as my inspiration.

I used a sentiment from My Pink Stamper. I am not sure if she is selling stamps or not any more. But I think the script is so pretty.  I added lots of pretty flowers and a butterfly punched from Kraft cardstock.

I am going to keep this short and sweet this afternoon! 

As mentioned, I found inspiration from Cardabilites Sketch Challenge. 


I am also sharing at Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes, Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes, Little Scrap Pieces - Saturday Linky Party.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your afternoon! We are expecting thunderstorms which more than likely is going to cancel our baseball game this evening! Boo since our game on Saturday got cancelled too. 

Have a GREAT day! Thanks for stopping by!

Love the earth tones and it turned out gorgeous.. Inspite of the occasion for it, sympathy cards seems to be the hardest to do....

Great card, Tammy. I don't like having to make sympathy cards, but I'm sure yours will be a comfort and a blessing. Thanks for sharing with us at WAW. I had an out-patient surgery this morning and I've been internet surfing tonight and of course, I always enjoy my visits to your blog. Thanks for sharing!
Hugs,

Another Beautiful sympathy card, Tammy. They will appreciate it. Isn't it so difficult to make these?

Sympathy cards are the hardest to make, I so agree with that...but you did a beautiful job on this tough occasion. Love that paper. Serene and beautiful. And your flower cluster and kraft butterfly are gorgeous, too!

Oh Tammy, what a gorgeous, gorgeous card. Such a sad reason to make a card, hope it's a long while before you need to make another.
