Thinking of you at this difficult time

Well, I was finally able to get into my craft room and make a couple of the sympathy cards that I need to send. It felt good to putter in there and actually produce something - it had been so long!!!Here is the first one.

And the second. I simply rifled through the scrap bin for a few different colours.

I found some inspiration over at Less is More where the challenge is things that move. Thank goodness, as I really wanted to come up with a somewhat simple design and then repeat it a few times.

And here is the inside. This Stampendous sentiment set is my "go to" set for sympathy cards. It's called "Encouraging Words" SSC134. I've had it for sometime so have no idea if it is still available, but I am always so glad I have it at times like these.

I do hope you've had a lovely weekend. We have - good times with friends and weather that wasn't too hot!
Take care,
Shanna :)

What I used:
stamps: Tattered Angels Graceful Journey Screen Prints clear stamps, Stampendous sentiment set
inks: twilight, pansy purple


  1. Very fitting cards for the occasion, and suit our challenge too!
