Sympathy Card

Hi there! I hope everyone is having a great week! I have been consumed with baby shower stuff all week. My daughter-in-law's baby shower is Saturday & I'm doing all the party favors & decorations. Ahhh! It's stressful but a good kind of stress. Besides, sleep is totally overrated right? Lol.

Anyway, here is a sympathy card I made for a very good family friend who just lost his mother last week . . . .

And the inside . . . .

All of the paper is from a kit I won for a challenge from Diana at DL. ART. The kit is by Monique Griffith Designs. The pearls are from my stash. The punch is from Martha Stewart & the ribbon is from Offray. The scalloped circle punch is from Fiskars. The faux stitching is done with a black Sakura pen. The edges are inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in "Black Soot".

The sentiments are from the K Andrew Designs stamp set called "Sympathetic Sayings".

To order this set or any other K Andrew Designs stamp sets click on the links above or HERE. There are so many beautiful sayings in this set! It makes me almost cry when I read them all. OK, enough sad stuff, lol. Happy thoughts!! So . . . . I took a quick break but now it's back to baby shower central!!

Thanks so much for visiting me today!
