With Deepest Sympathy

Sympathy cards are so hard to make!  You know that the recipient is going through a hard time and you want the card to be perfect, maybe to help them cheer up a little!  I think, because of this, alot more thought goes into these types of cards!  I was really happy with the end result of this card...


I made that flower with my Cricut!  I am super excited now, to make more!  I think it really added a great focal point for the card!  PTI's Asian Fusion just came in the mail today and so this sentiment is the first thing that got inked up!  I LOVE the font in that set!  All the sentiments will get used alot here at my house, I am sure!!


Hope your Tuesday is getting to a good start!  Have a great day!
