Many Sympathies

I have the last of the sympathy cards to share and hope I won't have to make too many more of these any time soon.

The first is for our Pastors wife who lost her dear grandmother. This paper pack has many of these panels that go with the papers, they make for quick cards. The button had a large hole in the center so I put a brad through it. Added a touch of lace ribbon and a sentiment.

DCWV - The primrose paper
Hot off the press - Dazzles- 130 tiny words and phrases
Lace ribbon

Next for a friend who lost her mother.

The background I had made in my stamping group awhile back but can't remember the technique we used. The "you" is a stamp, I stamped the rest of the sentiment onto a black cardstock with white embossing powder.

Lawn Fawn - Fancy scalloped rectangle die
Tim Holtz - sizzix - Wildflowers #2 die
Mama Elephant - Butterfly kisses sentiments

Lastly a friend lost a cat of  I believe she said was 17 years old.  My cats lived to be that age and it is so heartbreaking after losing them when they have been apart of your family for so many years.  I have used this same die cut in the past for cats passing, but usually as a silhouette this time I colored it, after making a background using the Nuvo shimmer powders.

It was a beautiful day so far, we went on a walk and it was so enjoyable.  I am thankful these times to get a break from the heat, the whole 7 day forecast calls for the 90's starting Saturday so back to the heat.

Hope this finds you all well, and thanks for taking the time to stop by today,

All these cards are very beautiful! Thank you so much for the cat sympathy card. It was in my box when I got home from vacation. I haven’t had a chance to pm you yet. It was very thoughtful of you to send a card! You are right, he was 17 and we miss him a lot.

I do also love the details on the first card, the brad and button with the ribbon go well with your paper.

All cards are beautiful with loving sentiments. Let's hope there is no need to create cards with a sad message for a long while. The cat card is sweet. Our pets are part of our family aren't they. Oh.....for warm days.

Three beautiful cards. You had me at the birdcage in the first card. So pretty. I hope you don't need more sympathy cards again soon. It's nice to have a variety on hand, but hard to make them ahead. The pet sympathy card is a very thoughtful gesture. My pets, for sure, are every bit as important to me as the rest of my family. I'm sorry for all these losses.
