With Sympathy

As I was going through some things today, I found a box of cards I saved from when my mother passed away a little over a year ago. It made me remember how comforting those handmade sympathy cards were during that tragic time.

You don't realize how much it is appreciated - but it is so very comforting to receive a handmade card during the difficult time of loss.

I have created a simple Sympathy card to share with you today. I used the Bazzill Monochromcatic Violet papers, Lavender Sachet and Violette Palette Ink Pads, and stamps from Swirly Gigs (soon retiring) and With Sympathy. You can't really tell in the picture - but I also highlighted a bit with our clear Stardust Glitter Pen


  1. gorgeous ... I love swirly gigs!

  2. Very nice - love the monochromatic theme.

  3. Very nice, I have a couple of these I need to make unfortunately. Thanks for the reminder of how important it can be!

  4. Gorgeous yet so simple! Great card!

  5. Beautiful card. I really like this particular stamp set. I will continue to use mine long after it has retired. I also like to use the stardust glitter pens to add some sparkle and shine! I will be thinking of you and praying for continued healing as you remember your mother!
    Angel Hugs,

  6. Beautiful! There is such a feeling of gentle love in this perfect for someone going through a great loss
