Sympathy Cards

Sharing in Your Sorrow 
It has been too long since I posted a new card as it was my goal to post something weekly.  I've been creating new cards but haven't taken time to post them. It must be because I am outside more now that the weather is warmer. 

A while back my mom asked me to make her some sympathy cards to have on hand.  Here are two of the cards that I made for her.  Of course she liked them all; because she's my mom :) and one of the biggest supporters of my creative ministry outlet... card making (my husband is equally supportive).   Thanks Mom. I love you!

For Sharing in Your Sorrow I used my friend Sheri's dies and a button for the flower center. I don't know that these are really flower dies but I thought it was a fun way to use them.  A simple card with some fun elements and subtle colors appropriate for a sympathy card.

With Love and Remembrance              

For With Love and Remembrance I used a die cut butterfly that I colored with my alcohol markers and embossed with clear embossing powder. I love the floral paper from the Crate Paper, Inc., Farmhouse 6x6 pad, as I think it ties all of the colors together so well. Again, a simple yet apropos card for the loss of a loved one.       

Thanks for looking!  



  1. I don't know that they are flowers either but it is a great way to use them. Thanks for the idea~

  2. I found your blog on Pinterest! I was trying to find the bapron pattern you posted so I could tell you how awesome it is - I've made several for Quinn! I love your cards. :)

  3. Stephanie, thanks for your comment about my cards; I have a lot of fun making them. Hope you're enjoying your new life in Canada. I like the name of your blog- very catchy!
