The hardest cards in the world to make, write and receive are sympathy cards. No one receives a sympathy card unless they have endured a great loss. Knowing what to say to someone who has suffered a loss is difficult at best.

colored with Copic Markers. Sentiment from Hero Arts.
Last week I had planned to show you all a few cards I sent to a family of friends who lost their mother/grandmother. She was a nice lady that my son knew as Grandma Betty.

Stampin' Up! inks.
While I was preparing this series, my brother-in-law lost his mother. She was a very kind woman who wanted to take my whole family home to India with her.
|Images and die cuts are Henna Elements from Altenew. |
Sentiments are from Hero Arts.
Before I could get too far into the series two aquaintances lost their dogs. I was beginning to think that I should abandon the idea of sharing sympathy cards at all.
|I colored this beauty with Copic Markers. I have no idea who made this image, |
if you know let me know. The maker of the sentiment is also a mystery,
again if you know let me know.
