Now I really, really, really hate doing sympathy type cards, it's a horrible time and I never am satified with what I do (I'm not gonna say "happy" cos it's never a feeling associated with such a sad time...) but of course there are times when we all need such a card. And it just doesn't seem right to buy one - when it's just me being uncomfortable...
Fortunately I don't need one at the moment (and nor do I intend to), but I do like to have one to hand, just in case, that way I can send my love and thoughts should I need to without getting all emotional trying to make it.
I prefer to keep my sympathy cards simple - I just think that there are times to let my creativity go mad and there are times when I need to keep it in check. Personally when I was on the receiving end, I was more touched that people had bothered to send their love and words of comfort something at all rather than how elaborate it was.
To be honest I'd rather make a card for a man than make these but with the same logic that if you take your umbrella with you it won't rain I'm happy(ish) for them to be sitting in the box...
I do think that the image I've used is lovely - elegant and looks amazing in so many ways - but I've just stamped it with Stone Grey Stazon and not fiddled with it. Nothing fussy, just something to let someone know I'm thinking of them. I really need to use some more of this set as I love looking at them, just have no idea 99% of the time what to do with them!
Gosh that's all a bit depressing for a Monday... Sorry! Something bright and cheerful tomorrow... promise
