{ With Sympathy }

I have decided to try and make up a few Sympathy cards. It is something that we never like to make, but when I need one...well I never have one and quite often have no idea what to make. So honestly, some never get made. Does anyone else have this problem? I always want to make one for that specific person, but I just never know what to say or what to make. So maybe this way, I will just grab one if there are a few to choose from. Here is my first one I made last week. Nothing special, but think it is nice. Is it maybe a bit too 'happy' though for a Sympathy card?


My youngest loves this card! She was ooohhhing and aaahhhing over it this morning...too cute.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It is much warmer out today...although we are being lazy and probably won't get out to enjoy it!! Oh well ;0)

I think it looks good - I never have sympathy cards and always end up buying them. I was just looking at the TAC daisies I had stamped from you and thought I should do something with them!

Elizabeth has good taste... this card is stunning!

Dawn Easton said...

What do you mean, nothing special, this card is a BEAUTY!! Great job with it Tracy!
It's warming here but not as much as in Calgary...think I'm just getting used to the cold...rofl!

This is a perfect sympathy card! The colours are very soft and soothing, and the flower is very peaceful. Great job! That's a good idea, making a few to have on-hand. I never have any, either, when I need them. I'll have to follow your lead! TFS.

your card says it all, through looks & a few words---just lovely.
I like them simple, but elegant & yours is that. Again, another wonderful creation, from YOU!!!

Your card is lovely Tracy. It's
fresh and soft and comforting.
Flowers are always acceptable and
soft colours are soothing to the soul.

Lovely card, Tracy. I like it a lot! I think it is perfect in every way.

Tracy, this is a great Sympathy card.From experience, when grieving, I was just so thankful for every and all cards that came in. Flowers are such a healing thing and are so appropriate for Sympathy cards.
Great idea to make up some ahead so you can send a card, rather than not doing so because you are wanting to make the "perfect" one....great going!

What do you mean "Is it a bit too happY for a sympathy card"? :) It's suppose to cheer the person up! I think it's fabulous. Those are very hard to make up when you need one. Great idea to make em up ahead of time. I need to do the same.

Hey Tracy,

I think this is just lovely. I love the colours and the daisy is beautiful. I think you did a great job! :)
It's a great idea to do up a few to have on hand, a lot of times when we need one of these cards, we're not in the mood to make them.
Have fun with the CalGals tonight! I'm heading to a SU party tonight... I'm looking forward to a girls night out, too! :)
Hope everyone is well in your house now. Have a great weekend! :)

Hugs,
Julie
