Love and Sympathy …..

Hello Dear Reader, i hope you are having a good weekend?

We are having a quiet one this weekend as next month we have something planned for every weekend, with carnivals, birthdays and the Tour du France coming through the town, we are going to be busy busy busy!

Now onto todays card, the swap that i host on ILWS had the theme of Sympathy this month.

sympathy tut6-003

It is a horrible subject but unfortunately we all have to deal with sadness and loss at some point in our lives, so it stands that at some point we will need a sympathy card. I don’t enjoy the reason for needing the card so i make them in advance and have a small selection scurried away, however i actually like making a card that will need to go to someone at the most horrible time in their lives to let them know i am thinking of them.

I tend to make my sympathy cards in muted colours and pare down the ‘fussiness’ so that the thought behind the card is what is the main focus.

I used the Love and Laughter stamp set for this and i will post the tutorial of how to make it tomorrow.

Until next time
