2 Simple Sympathy Cards

Coffee of the Day - Creme Brulee

Sadly, one of my cousins died on Easter morning. although I have to say, if I could choose, that would be the exact day I would pick to go to Heaven! oh, the rejoicing and partying going on! lots of comfort in that mental picture, I tell ya.

anyhow, I am busy making lots of sympathy cards to send to his family. I'm not one of those who can make sympathy cards ahead of time. I need to make these as I need them so I can really think and pray over each one.


I'm also a fairly slow crafter, so I'm afraid y'all are going to be seeing these for a bit. I apologize in advance for this.

I'm sharing 2 today, made with a beautiful feather image from A Day for Daisies. papers are from the Webster's Pages Painted Passport collection.


ribbons and trims are all from Really Reasonable Ribbon with the exception of burlap which is May Arts and buttons are from my vintage stash.

1st card - little banner punch and sentiment used on it are by SU!
2nd card - banner die is SU! and sentiment stamp is by Unity.

thanks so much for stopping by. I hope your day is amazing! :)
