Some Sympathy Cards

Tonight we have Storm Eleanor visiting, and it's certainly blowing a gale out there and lashing rain too.  Hopefully it calms down a wee bit for the morning, it's back to the grindstone for me after my Xmas hols.  Boo Hoo  :(

I've no sympathy cards in my stash, and hate making them, so thought I'd have an evening of it!

This first one, was a bit of a surprise to me!  I was looking for the flower stamp and came across this lovely sentiment.  I think I might have won it in some blog candy or a challenge, I really don't remember!!  I love how this one turned out.
Prima flower stamp; pink sequins from my stash.

This one uses an older LOTV stamp and Paper Smooches sentiment.  I fancied doing it in a lilac colour but only had a little snippet left - so rather than adding a whole strip I just cut the little side panels.

And lastly another oldie from Whipper Snapper - I went over my flowers with my clear glitter pen, I thought the sparkle made it look sort of wintry.

All three are such pretty and thoughtful cards, but your first one is a real beauty. I love the soft colors of the flowers, and the sentiment is wonderful!

How beautiful are your three cards! Loving that wonderful sentiment on the first and those icy blue sparkly flowers on the third are so pretty. Thanks for sharing one with AAA Cards.

These are lovely Lynne, the sentiment on the first one is perfect. Thankfully Eleanor left everything intact here, scary to listen to though!! xx

Hello, Lynne! Thank you so much for the lovely Christmas card, it was greatly admired!

I hope Storm Eleanor passed by without damage. My goodness, it was a wild night! I woke up when I heard a bang at about 2, scared we'd lost a rooftile - but it was only a large book falling off the bed!!!

Your sympathy cards are beautiful, the sentiment on the top one is so moving.

Wishing you a happy, healthy and crafty 2018.

Oops - and thanks for joining in at CRAFT Challenge, too!

I love all three cards Lynne - just perfect. I too have that beautiful sentiment although my stamp also has some little flowers on - I do prefer your, I bought mine in New Mexico of all places. Great idea to keep a few cards to hand - I dither between both approaches but am sure yours is the best way.

Happy 2018!
