Sympathy card

Happy Monday peeps, still verrrrry cold here which makes getting out of bed in the wee hours of the morning extra difficult. Especially when you are NOT a morning person {that would be me}.

A co-worker of mine lost her FIL last week. I generally don't make sympathy cards. I suck at them. I like cute, happy cards & always feel like I can't make a simple enough card to qualify as a sympathy card. But, she's the only one I ever make cards for at work so I wanted to give it a shot.

{pardon the shadows LOL.... I was trying to get this photo last night in my makeshift photo box. I really need to get a REAL photo box. Or make a better fake one}

I started by searching sketches online ... I knew I wanted simple & I simply don't DO simple. Found this sketch floating around & thought perfect ... I can just add a flower & make it more sympathy-like.

I think paper is Bazzill dots ... some of my favorite back in the day. I don't even know if they still make it. I really need to get back in the know! 

I think the die is a Sizzix ... I love doilies so thought I'd just get a die instead of buying tons of different colored doilies. Added a bit of sponging & the flowers .... some ribbon (which was really hard because most of my ribbon is still packed away) & the heart charm. 

I was going to put the sentiment on the front, but keeping with the "simple" theme just stamped it on a die cut piece of Kraft paper & added my words of love. 

She loved it. Or, she SAID she did. She's too polite to say otherwise lol .... 

I'm sure I could find some challenges to enter this into, but I am nursing a sore throat & headache so will call it a night. The joys of winter!

She'd have to be weird to not love it so I'm sure she wasn't just saying that. It is a very nice sympathy card.
