Flowery Sympathy card

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!  Off work now till the 2nd {hooray}, all my shopping is done and pressies wrapped .. well, mostly, I still am trying to finish some cards for one of them and thought I'd include a sympathy card in the pile.
Oh, and we had some snow today!! Huge flakes they were, but it was oul' wet stuff that didn't lie.

I bought these pretty flowers (Whipper Snapper stamp) as I always really struggle with sympathy cards, and am delighted with how this turned out!  Coloured with pencils.  DPs from Me and My Big Ideas ... from my Secret Santa in work!  Paper Smooches sentiment and gold gems to finish.

  1. Lynne, that's such a beautiful vase of flowers and a wonderful card.
    You know, you could get on those jet across the miles if you stayed out of those craft stores and saved all that money. LOL
