The hardest cards to make !

I really hate making sympathy cards. I know hate is a strong word, but I just hate it. I know that the person that is on the other end is in pain. Is dealing with death and is hurting. I know this is one of the best times to get a hand made card. I am thankful that I can bring a little tiny bit of kindness to someone that is hurting. I find these cards so hard to make I can sit and just look at the stamp for an hour without an idea. I am sad to say I need to give one of these cards. I made this card up from an old su catalog. It's a pretty close copy. So I give all credit to su...I don't know who created it. I just made a bunch up. I don't want to have to do them often so once a year I make a bunch and pray I don't run out.

I can say from having a family member killed in a sudden way. That sympathy cards can touch the heart. I know that I got one handmade card and it's my most cherished card. The words were simple yet they meant so much.

So, remember they are hard to make but for the grieving family member they can have great impact.

All supplies su.. with deepest sympaty stamp is rubber stampede

I agree with you that during a difficult time a handmade card can say so much. This one is really beautiful. Love the color on color effect.

Yes it is hard to make these kind...I like your idea of doing a bunch at once though, it'd be easier when you're not thinking of a specific person to make one for. Yours is just lovely.

I totally agree- you want to show that you care but are so afraid of saying the wrong thing. Your card looks lovley.

The card is lovely. I know they are sad to make, but they are a labor of love. A wonderful way to show you truly care.

Thank you card!

This is a super quick and easy card today.  I love how The megaphone comes out of the paper.
