Sympathy Card

365 cards Day 143: Keep it to yourself Sympathy: The challenge is to convey the message without putting the sentiment on the front, HOWEVER, the message CAN be on the inside.

Whew! No message... jeez... I was so tempted to use some of my beautiful papers and put words like peace and mother on the front but before I sat down to actually make this card, my dear Grand Aunt Verna passed away this morning at 11:10AM ~God bless her soul ~ despite all the pretty things going on in my creative mind... for her, this is the perfect paper and card. She was a sweeeet, simple soul who loved nothing more than her children and who needed nothing more than her family nearby, something pretty to look at, her bible and a song in her heart to make her most happy. For her daughters, my Aunties, I followed true to the challenge and made something pretty and peaceful.

May nature touch you
with compassion, bless
you with sunlight and
send gentle rain to quietly
weep with you. May the
breeze whisper life that
never ends, only that
it is changed - that it
continues forever in a
world more beautiful
than our words can describe.

  1. Awww...I'm so sorry. It's never easy to lose someone, and your great-aunt sounds like she was a wonderful lady. You will be in my thoughts, and I will pray for you and your aunties as you go through these difficult days. Beautiful card, and I love your sentiment.

  2. What a beautifully elegant card; I'm sorry that you needed it, however.
