May the Lord Bless you.

I really need to move on from sympathy now but as I find myself surrounded in sympathy cards I seem to be getting inspiration from them which in turn is showing in my card making, I find this quite strange as normally I would find these the hardest cards of them all to make.
The cross is stamped directly onto the base card in a brown walnut distress ink then a couple of pearls added the sentiment is stamped onto one of the smallest label Nestabilities and then cut out the next size label in a brown card stock both stamps are from Every Day Blessing by PTI.
I stamped the next image by Clarity stamps onto a larger sized label shape and again mounted this on top of a larger one in the brown card stock.
I brought it all together with a chocolate silk ribbon.

I found this too when Grandad died in September. Made quite a lot of lovely sympathy cards. Think the words are soothing, and it helps to make something pretty to ease the pain.

This is beautiful Jak and sometimes its easier to have a card done than to do one in sad circumstances.

jak, that is beautiful. sometimes in grief it is easier to immerse yourself in something like crafting, after all it is like transporting yourself for a while.just remember to allow the grief to come out whe it wants too, a good cry never hurt anyone. take care. x
