Sympathy Cards

Hello & Happy Sunday!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
The weather here in south central PA is cloudy & a bit rainy. A chance for some freezing rain but I think the temperatures are finally rising above freezing. Nonetheless, it's still dreary & almost dark out today! Guess i'll be heading down to craft a bit this afternoon! WooHoo!

Before I leave, I wanted to share a few sympathy cards I have made in the last week or so. So much sadness to start off the beginning of the New Near. I just sent 2 cards out this past week and 2 the week before. 

This first card I cased from Kay Kalthoff. So simple and beautiful I will probably make another one with this layout but in different colors.

This card I made with a different fold. I love the Z Fold type of card. I pulled the colors for this from the DSP. I think it's very pretty & quite uplifting!

My next card I used the Color Challenge colors from a week or 2 ago. I felt they were more suited to be a Sympathy card possibly for a man.

Old Olive, Very Vanilla & Crumb Cake

I hope all the cards I have sent brings some comfort & peace to the recipients. Sympathy cards are not an easy thing to make but I find comfort in them.

Well, that's all I have for today!
Stop back tomorrow for another challenge from Merry Monday! Those ladies are really putting out some great challenges to start off this New Year!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day, my friends!

Happy Stamping!
