Sympathy Cards

My sweet friend Marisa is on the JUGS DT and always does the cutest cards so this week I decided to play along. The challenge starts with some beautiful pictures and some fun colors - here is this week's inspiration board:

This last week has been a bit sad - I have needed three Sympathy cards. This one is for a woman who works in another division of Rheem - she was in a car wreck a week ago and lost a small child. I can't think of too many things that are sadder than that. I wanted to keep it simple and delicate.

I am entering this in the JUGS challenge - JUGS181.

Here is another Sympathy card I made this week. This is for a sweet friend at work that lost her Mother - another very sad thing.

So I wanted to ended this on a happier note. These two individuals are definitely destined for Heaven - what can be happier than that. While they may be missed here - they are already fulfilling their destiny and experiencing a joy we can't even begin to imagine. Wow! Hugz to all!


  1. Both these cards are so beautiful and so thoughtful sweet Nancy. So sorry to hear your friends are going through some tough times. These cards will let them know of your caring heart. You have crafted some beauties for them and they will know you are thinking of them. Blessings going your way.
    Bear hugs,

  2. Beautiful cards! I love the simplicity and elegance of the first card!

  3. Sorry to hear you needed sympathy cards, but both of these are stunning and I know they were much appreciated.

  4. Nancy, your cards are beautiful and I'm sure they will appreciate receiving them. Very sad, indeed for both families.

    The sympathy cards that you made are just "Perfect" I'm sure that they will bring comfort.
    I love the words on the second card, and it's alright with you I would like to case them on a card that I need to make.
