With Deepest Sympathy

Here's another CAS card I made.  This time I cut a piece from a 12x12 paper that was part of a  DCWV's La Creme paper pad.  The sentiment was stamped with a Stampin Up stamp.  The rose and lace scallop are stamps from MME, Miss Caroline stamp set.  

This paper is a soft yellow (almost a cream color) and trimmed in black velvet flowers.  It is so gorgeous, I just could not cover it up and decided to let it stand on it's own merit.  The recipient received it today and she called to say how beautiful it is.

I am going to try to make a supply of sympathy cards made up.  It is so difficult to make a card when you are grieving.  But  it is a comfort to know that your card comforted someone else.

Not much going on here this week.  I have been doing little projects around the house.  You know those little cleaning and straightening jobs that you only do when the dirt is bigger than the items sitting on it.  I am trying to do at least one project a day.  Today I did one and a half so I am a little ahead of myself for tomorrow.  I need to take all my window blinds down and give them a good bath.  I am dreading that, but tomorrow just may be the day since the weather will be so beautiful I can hang them outside to dry.  Anyone want to help?  I'll make the coffee and add a  bit of sweet cream and Kahlua to it!

I am entering this in Make It Monday, Always Anything Goes Challenge this week.


  1. It's such a beautiful paper, so you were right to keep it like it is and only add a sentiment. Your card is very elegant and makes a perfect "with sympathy" card. I spotted your card on MIM.

  2. What a beautiful card Linda, for a sad occasion.

  4. Thanks for your kind invitation but I'm pretty certain that I'm busy tomorrow! Beautiful sympathy card, very striking colors!

  5. It is a beautiful card, and your right, having some on hand is better than making them when the need arises. So nice of the recipient to let you know how much she liked the card and your thoughts for her.

    The coffee sounds great, but the BLINDS! The worst job.......I'll pass, but will be thinking of you.........


  6. Your card is beautifull. I have just had to make one too and as you say very difficult to make at the time needed. Spotted your card on MIM as it was so striking came by for a closer look. Hugs Mrs A.
