Trying to refill my card boxes!!!!


For today's card, I have no idea what the name of the stamp set is.
I should really write these things down.lol
As I stated in my previous post I have been trying to fill my card boxes, since I had given alot of cards away for Christmas.

Sympathy cards are very hard for me to make, as I am sure they are for others, too.
But my feeling is they should be thoughtful and pretty.
At a time when someone has lost someone dear to them all they really want to know is that you are there for them, to listen or to be their shoulder to cry on.
Some people I sell cards to believe that sympathy cards shouldn't be "too" cheery.
I feel that the cards should be an uplifting tool and help the person remember the good memories of the loved one.
I can speak from experience and say that when I have had a loss (which sadly has been quite a few in the last year) that just getting a card from someone and reading the words they took the time to write inside makes all the difference.
So I hope this one helps someone in what could possibly be the worst time in there life.

Very pretty card! I agree with you, sympathy cards are the hardest to make. I also agree that she should be more uplifting and on the cheery side I mean the person receiving the card does need a pick me up.

PS. How are you feeling? Hope your feeling better.
