Sympathy Card

Good evening everyone, I hope you had a nice day!   We are anticipating COLD weather this weekend, BRRRRRR. I am planning a nice big pot of homemade vegetable beef soup and cornbread YUM!
I am posting a sympathy card I made (actually made 3) some dear friends who lost their brother on Thanksgiving day. They were very close friends, Sue was my very best friend when I was a teenager. Her little sister Debbie and her brother Gary were good friends as well. Ray, the brother that passed away (due to complications of pneumonia) was like a big brother to me and was so much fun to be around. I remember him dancing around and just being a big old goof ball. The family is in shock, and he will be missed.
I don't like making sympathy due to the nature of what they are for. I wanted a special card and took to good old Pinterest for inspiration.  I found one like this and really liked it so made one like it (I'm sorry that I don't know the person that designed it to give them credit).
 I love the embossed background....
 And the sweet bird on the branch.
 I added sheer silver ribbon (which was not on the one I saw).
I kept the sentiment short and to the point and then wrote my own personal message.
I really love how they turned out.           Thank you for stopping by and have a great evening!

  2. Beautiful card. So sorry for the loss of your friend. It's doubly difficult to loose someone around a holiday. I don;t think the holiday is ever the same again. Your card is gorgeous. I love the embossing. I too have a tough time with sympathy cards and wish I would make them ahead of time. But I rarely do. Take care with the cold. Ours has arrived. It's been dropping all day. We have the fire going and a big pot of soup sounds really good!

  3. So sorry about Sue's loss. I know how hard it is too loose those we love. my prayers are with them. The card is stunning. Love how the embossing really pops on the gold card. Very elegant. Lovve it
