Sympathy cards

I always need sympathy cards. Seems like you hit a certain age and relatives and friends start going. Yikes, I am getting old. Anyway, I thought I would share a couple I made up so I had some on hand. I've had this marble type cardstock for a long time and really didn't like it. I pulled it out the other day and thought it kind of looked like clouds so came up with this. I just stamped some bold flowers/weeds/grass on the bottom edge in a coordinating color, added ribbon to match and then the sympathy saying on a square nestie. I used the Martha Steward border punch for the top on coordinating cardstock and there, I have some generic sympathy cards on hand that I like. They were fast, easy, mailable and look like you took more time than you did. I always like that! It's simple but that's ok. Sometimes I don't like all the 'stuff' on cards.

I am sorry for the need for the cards, but they are great.

I like the "simple" cards best too, especially for sympathy cards. These look great.
