With deepest sympathy

It's sad that this kind of card is often needed - the older one gets, the more they are needed.

Anyway, this is a simple card using a piece of paper similar to those in the pack I am giving away for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge for January (if you haven't discovered this yet, please click on the link and join in the fun). I used a little stamp that I've had for years, inking with memento rich cocoa and also stazon blazing red, sometimes stamping this on a piece of  paper first so I got a faded image. The sentiment is Anita's.

  1. Simple, but effective. As you say, it's a sad fact of life that we regularly need sympathy cards.
