With Sympathy

It seems that I have had to make many sympathy cards lately, which is not a nice things, but inevitible considering that my parents are aging and losing some of their friends as well as my friends losing their parents.

I can't begin to think about life without mine and I feel truly blessed to have them in my life. Because I am an only child, I think I will almost feel orphaned when they are watching me from above. We don't have a huge extended family, so although I have some contact with cousins, we just aren't that close.

Fortunately I have formed friendships that have become so close it's as if I have sisters, especially my friend Jacqui; I know that no matter what, she'll be there for me through good and bad to share my happy moments and to be their when I need an ear or a virtual hug.

Anyway, enough of the melancholy, I have far too much to do today!!!!

Clean clean clean and off to the gym to work of my lax eating habits of the last few days!

Happy Stamping and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  5. Hi Vicki
    Thanks for visiting my blog.
    This is a stunning card, so simple and elegant.
    Sorry for the sad news that comes with it though.
    It's a tough time in people's lives

  6. Hey Vicki, I'm sorry you've had to make so many sympathy cards. It's always hard to make them knowing what they are intended for.

    I was raised by my grandparents and was an only child and when they passed away, I feel like an orphan even at my age. I actually worried about being orphaned all my life because my grandparents were already old. Luckily, like you, I have wonderful people in my life.

    Your card is beautiful and perfect for a sympathy card. No fan fair just simple beauty. Love the colors. . .beautiful mix!!



Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I hope you have a wonderful day and I very much appreciate your sweet comments!
