Sympathy Card

This is one of those cards we all hate to have to make.

A forum friend’s Husband recently lost his battle with cancer, and I sent her this card.

I just wanted something simple with a heartfelt message and I felt that this gorgeous verse said all I wanted to say and more.

The background is a Die’Sire Embossing Folder, a lovely new 8x8 folder. The mat is Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8, and the verse I have had for a while but found on the internet.


I hope it gave her some comfort. I know my Mum used to go back to the cards sent when my Dad passed away again and again and they certainly gave her some comfort.

I am sharing this in the following:-
