One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Sympathy Cards for the stash

I was in need of some Sympathy cards, and my friends at Bible study are always asking for that type of card.  This first one with the butterfly was actually given to a very close friend whose father just passed away.  I used pearlescent embossing paste and a Crafters Workshop (chicken wire) stencil on lemon tart paper.  The doily is die cut in vellum with the PTI Dainty Doily dies.  The butterfly is from PTI Beautiful Butterflies on water color paper that was colored with some distress inks.  Three pearls were added to the center.

These are a box set of cards that I put together using PTI Pretty Peonies and some copics for highlighting.  I just used an assortment of colors and added the PTI black dotted paper to the bottom.  The sentiments on all these cards are from Simon Says Stamps:  Handwritten Borders...I love those!

This is another set, since I was doing one, thought I may as well do four and just change up the color.
Some are sympathy, and some are just praying for you...
The image is from MFT: Peaceful Gardens
I think that is enough for now.  I know I have been missing this past week...but as you can see I have been productive, just taking care of things that I needed, like those sympathy cards.
I will only have two more days this week to craft as I leave Thursday morning for Spokane Wa for three days of volleyball for my two granddaughters.  I guess I better get busy on a couple of those challenges that I love to Merry Monday!!
Heart Hugs friends!


  1. Great stash of Sympathy cards, Col. So beautiful...

  2. They are all beautiful and stylish! I LOVE the ones with the black and white dots, but that's because I have a fondness for dots in that colorcombination.

  3. Love all of these. Your butterfly is so pretty and the two sets you made are great. The polka dot cards are cute and I love the Peaceful Gardens stamp. Have a great time with your granddaughters. It's so nice to be able to spend time with them while doing something they love.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
