A Simple Sympathy Card


A man from our church died this past week and his funeral is on Monday so I wanted to make a sympathy card for his dear wife. I actually didn't have any sympathy stamps until I recieved my new There She Goes sets in the mail Thursday! The set I used was "Here For You" and it is such a beautiful sympathy set. I used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge for this card too. Since I didn't have a whole lot of time to stamp like I had planned, I made it a quick card. I pulled a piece of Urban Garden dsp for the larger rectangular panel and then stamped this fabulous quote and embossed it with white ep. I am not sure if you can read it but it says "Words, however kind, can't mend your heartache: but those who care and share your loss wish you comfort and peace of mind. May you find strength in the love of family and in the warm embrace of friends." Isn't that just amazing? What a touching quote. Anyway, this card is absolutely gorgeous in real life and I couldn't get it to photograph like I had hoped but I didn't have time to try again so hopefully I will have the chance later. I just wish you could see the true beauty of it. Well, that's it for today! I have to take a test this morning so if you could remember to say a quick prayer for me, that would be fantastic! I NEED to pass this thing the first time. It is too expensive to have to retake! Enjoy your Saturday and I will be back tomorrow with another card!

I think it's gorgeous online too!!! Wow, I really love the colors. I've been searching for a great sympathy stamp set and I think you might have just sold me on this one. Are the stamps reb rubber or clear? TFS!!

Hugs,
Amy
