A Difficult Card - Sympathy

This is my second post for the day.  (I've never done two posts in one day before, so I hope what I've done is ok.)  To see my Sympathy card, please scroll down.

This card is for a new challenge that ends tomorrow so I've got to get it posted quickly.  I'm entering ABC Challenges SIP Challenge (Stamps, Ink and Paper).  I made this for my neighbors' anniversary.

The CS, DP, ribbon and pearls are all from my stash.  The stamp and sentiment are CTMH.

Hi, there.  Today I have a sympathy card which I made for a friend.  We all know how difficult it can be to make sympathy cards.  I always struggle when making one.

The stamp is CTMH, the ink is Memento.  I used a Sizzix embossing folder and and the sentiment is a $1 wooden stamp from Michaels.  Cardstock is from my stash.

I'm entering this in the challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks - 155 (Sympathy) and Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes.


  1. Beautiful card!!!Love the design!!!

  2. Both are beautifully done, Sheila! I love the slanted bird image along with the lace ribbons! The sympathy card is just the right amount of color and subtlety! Always a joy to see your cards, do not ever feel bad about posting it often--just ask me! :)

  3. Both of your cards are very lovely. I just purchased that bird CTMH set recently and haven't had a chance to use it. I love that you made an anniversary card with it. Thanks for joining us this week at ABC Challenges.

  4. It's never easy having to make or send a sympathy card, but this is really beautiful and I think it will be a real blessing and comfort to its recipient. Thanks so much for sharing with us this week, and please stop by to join us again soon. Your art is such a blessing to us and I'm grateful for your participation.
