A Simple Sympathy

Sympathy cards are definitely NOT my specialty. It seems I never have one when I need it and then can't find the time to create one. My receptionist at work recently lost her mother and fortunately I found one buried deep in my stack.

A "Thinking of You" card would serve the purpose. I probably should have a couple of sympathy cards one hand, but I am so much more of a funny and/or cutesy kind of person. Flower stamps just don't seem to be my thing either, even though I do own a couple of sets. SU's Lovely as a Tree is quite versatile and I like it so much better than flowers. The nice thing is it can also be used on masculine cards too.

Hopefully next time I'll have something a little cheerier to share. I start my vacation after work today. Yeah! Not going anywhere or doing anything special, other than I get to meet Vicki IRL and pick up my new copic markers that have been sitting at the LSS for a week now. I am so looking forward to both those things. Hopefully with some free time I can be a little more creative too.

I'm that way too...with the cutesy, funny. But your card is lovely and she'll appreciate it.
