My Sympathy

Ok, so last week, my friend Stephanie told me she was having a rough time. She told me she needed some sympathy cards, so she asked me if I could make some for her. Well, this is nothing I have ever done and swore I didn't have any stamps to make any sympathy cards. So I told her I couldn't do it. How do you make a sympathy card? And are there really any words you can say? I never planned on making any, so haven't bought any stamp sets specific to the occasion. That's just not my thing. I mean, not like anyone loves death or anything. But I'm really not good at it. I'm one of those people that stammers, searching for words and is, uh, like, uh...sorry? So over the weekend, I was playing with my Life set and thought the silhouettes would look good in black. Then I realized, Dawn included this sentiment in her Damask Designs set that I just happen to have. I put it together, then asked Stephanie if this was ok. Appropriate. What do I know? She said yes and there you have it. My first (and last?!) sympathy card.

Stamps: Life & Damask Designs (PTI), Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Paper: PTI white & Basic Black (SU!)

And it's perfect. The classic, simple Mint card, even if it's out of your comfort zone. Stephanie's right -- this is a great sympathy card. Good job!
