Another Sympathy Card

Technical difficulties meant I couldn't upload my sympathy cards yesterday... note to self, do not leave laptop power cable at work!

I did two versions, one with a retired Hostess set phrase, the other with a phrase from Teeny Sentiments. I thinks the phrase is a bit too small for the card: what do you think? I need to get a larger sentiment set I think< what is your favourite?
I am using Summer Silhouettes again with the colour combo of Blushing Bride and Smokey Slate with accents of Black and Baked Brown Sugar

A Difficult Card to Make

Recently a friend joined an unofficial club I belong to, one whose membership just keep increasing... women whose mothers have died.  We all find these cards hard to make, so this time I made 2 designs and made 2 of each. Now there will be some stockpiled for the unfortunate time I need one next.

This is cased from a card I spotted on Pinterest by Diane Cavaness, I have just changed the colours to Smokey Slate with Basic Grey for the stamping. It looks very elegant.

I will post the other design tomorrow.

I hope receiving this card will bring some comfort, and it has brought a reflective time for me too.
