a sympathy card

Sympathy cards are one of my favorite cards to make.
I love to go to the dollar store and find great poems or quotes and use them.
I also like having these on hand because when someone loses someone - getting a card is so appreciated.
Unfortunately, I say that from experience.

So here's a sympathy card I made with some older Basic Grey and a butterfly punch.
I used a square card from Studio G. and covered the hole that was on the front (actually cut it off).

I couldn't help myself - I used Lavenderia again for the font. My new fave.
Plus, a bit of embossed green cardstock on sale at Michaels for 39 cents a sheet.

Here's the lovely poem inside that I stole from a Dollar Tree card:

Isn't that beautiful? Love it!
Now, let's hope I never have to send this card.

Looking forward to my two cards classes this week and catching up on some paperwork so I can start school one week from today.

Tomorrow I'll be sharing some new goodies I just got! See you then!

Tracie...I LOVE that! Such pretty paper and the sentiment is so very perfect! I am so going to put this design in my "sketch book" with your permission because I would love to use it as inspiration for some cards. Just LOVE this!
