With Sympathy

Hi Everyone,

I needed to make a Sympathy card tonight, and due to working late didn’t get up to my shed until after 9.30pm so I had to get a shimmy on.

I struggle with sympathy cards, and had two go’s to get it right tonight, the first card was ok, but it wasn’t doing it for me and it wasn’t until I went to make an envelope for the first card that the second card just came to me 🙂


I used a pale blue flocked paper from a me and my big ideas baby boy 12 x 12 stack, there are a lot of real nice papers in it.


I made the envelope out of matching paper and used red line tape to hold it together, given that the paper is so fuzzy.
