Masculine sympathy

Sorry to be sharing another sympathy card, I promise my next one will be a birthday card.  Our male friend from church just lost his mother.  They are also retired from the Military so they had a 13 hour trip to get back home for the funeral which is today.  They had a little car trouble on the way, praying they can get it fixed and have a good safe trip back here.

Did some simple stamping on the designer paper, thought this stripped paper would be nice for the background.


Graphic 45 -- Curtain call paper
Spellbinders -- A2 matting basics A&B dies
Inkadinkado -- Garden delight stamp
Stampendous -- Sincere Sentiments stamp
Bazzill -- Brads

Wishing you all a relaxing weekend, with some time to create!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit,

Connie

You have certainly needed a lot of sympathy cards lately, but it's so good of you to prepare a special card for each friend. This is beautiful. Love how you stamped directly onto the designer paper.

Oh, Connie, you have been making a lot of sympathy cards lately. So sorry, and I pray that this dear family will have a safe trip back for the funeral and be comforted. Your card is beautiful and delicate, and I love how you've stamped on the DP! Beautiful, my friend, and you always stamp with such a heart of love and care! Hugs!

I love your take on a masculine sympathy card -- I'm sure he will appreciate your thoughtfulness!

Connie said...

Sympathy cards are so hard to write. I'm sure that you want to move on to a more cheerful topic, but I am sure that your handmade cards touch the hearts of those in need of knowing that they are loved and thought of . . . much more than a bought one. When you make it my hand, it was made with much love.

This is a beautiful design Connie. I really like the striped paper background, and the layering of the foliage is really lovely.
