The sympathy card is amazing Rose Ann. "from the heart" is a great sentiment. I never thought to use it that way. Great RAK too.

Savor the Journey said...

Oh Rose Ann! I've tried so hard to 'be good' and not order a bunch of sets this year. You're not making this easy at all! I truly love what you've done with this. I need to take a 'lead' from you and make a few specific cards ahead again as well. Thanks for the 'prompt' ... and the gorgeous inspiration!

Corie said...

These are so elegant and beautiful!!

Beate said...

Rose Ann, your sympathy cards are sooo beautiful! I used the same layout for the card i posted yesterday. We must have been on the same wave length.
Love the ribbon, the colors, the stamps, the brad and the paper piercing...in short everything!
I am sorry you had to make the cards though.
I am glad you liked the card. Big cyber hugs sweet friend!

Libby Hickson said...

Sorry you needed a sympathy card Rose Ann, but they are just gorgeous - as is the one from Beate!

Angel said...

Sorry you needed a sympathy card, but you made an absolutely beautiful one (3). I need to start stamping like that!

Lauren (mytime) said...

STUNNING! Sad news you needed to use a card though, but it is certain to let the receiver know you care.

Laura (scrapnextras) said...

Your sympathy cards are beautiful,the colous are so soothing! FAb inspiration from Beate...she inspires me daily!

Leslie Miller said...

Your sympathy cards are just right, Rose Ann, and very pretty. You're wise to make extras to have on hand. It's funny, when I was trying to use this set I thought how much more it looked like a sympathy set. Our layouts and colors are very similar, too. I like the sentiment you used with it and the Basic Gray for the card base.

Bethany Paull said...

Good idea. And these are just perfect.

broni (waterchild12) said...

Beautiful sympathy cards, Rose Ann! I don't know why I don't think to make more than one at a time! So smart!

Nancy said...

Beautiful cards. Love the colors.

Sharon (notimetostamp) said...

Jane said...

Wow...is it wrong to say that sympathy cards are stunning? Cause these ones are! Understated but gorgeous.
