Creating a fine mess .... but not blogging!

I seem to keep making the odd card here and there but then forget to blog them, so the next couple of days I will play catch up hopefully! 

Yesterday I made 6 cards in a couple of hours, 4 of those were sympathy cards. I have managed to avoid making them until now, but having found out a friend on MSE has just lost her husband I had to make one to send. I ended up making 3 more identical, and hopefully they will stay in my box of cards for a very very long time!! 





The cards are all different, but only just, I used different card blanks, and changed the embossed panel, the sentiment and image are pink petticoat and it comes ready to print. 

I love how beautiful the cards look, but in saying they look beautiful it sounds so wrong as they are for such a sad reason!

Beautiful Tams; love the embossing and the different edges along the bottom - I hope you don't have to send the others for a long, long time!!

Lovely cards but I hate making sympathy cards too. Hope these stay in your box for a looong time.
