Sympathy Card


I have been lucky in my life that I haven't had a use for many Sympathy cards. Recently my ex-mother in law's mother passed away. I felt I should send her a card, after all I was married to her son for almost 12 years. I looked at the cards in the store, and just couldn't bring myself to buy one. For one, thing I didn't like any of them, and it didn't help they were all over $4!
So I looked through my paper collection and found this 12x12 paper with a large pattern and thought it would be perfect. I don't own a sympathy stamp, so I printed out the words on my computer, and punched it out with the SU punch.

That is gorgeous! Great idea to just use patterned paper, it's perfect.

I agree...the card is gorgeous. It is hard to make sympathy cards though....I am sorry to hear about her passing.
