Always in our hearts

This is a sympathy card that I have made for my stash, I don't normally share sympathy cards if I make them for someone but as this one is for my stash I thought I would.


I have used a download from CraftsUprint, I think this image is perfect for sympathy cards and have used it several times.


There is a selection of sentiments and decoupage layers in the collection, I have also decorated the inside of the card with one of the matching inserts.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

DoubleClick Skittles Challenge 40 - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination Challenge 69 - Always Anything Goes
The Crafty Addicts Challenge 7 - Anything Goes/ Elegance

Thank you for calling today, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

Like you I don't post them when made for somebody but mine today was for my stock to sell. What a coincidence and what a fabulous card, love the colours and sentiment

Lauren Hatwell said...

Sympathy cards are so terribly difficult aren't they. You've hit on a perfect combination there though. The sentiment is beautifully expressed and I think strikes just the right note. Lx

This is beautiful, Pauline. I made some for my Mom's stash recently - I think she would like something like this too. I'll keep it in mind for next time. Thanks for the inspiration. What size are your cards, if you don't mind me asking?

I like to have cards ready and prepared for such occasions, find it difficult to make them and even more so when I know who it's for, so a stash is a good solution. I think this is one of the most beautiful sympathy cards I've seen...

Unfortunately we always need a Sympathy card to fall back on at short notice and this one is lovely and says it all perfectly.
