Families are Forever

*** For April Bunny Blog Hop see THIS post. ***

Sad day in our household today... My uncle passed away last night. He has been sick for a while so it was not unexpected but still very sad none the less. I decided to make some quick sympathy cards for some family members. I've never made a sympathy card before so I was a little lost to be honest. This is what I came up with for my Grandma:

If I had to sum my Grandma up with one word it would be 'clean'. She is a super perfectionist and loves white and anything crisp and clean. I know she will like this card.
Details of course...
- A2 sized card
- embossing with Cuttlebug folder (not sure of the name of the folder but it came in the package of 4 folders that match the Once Upon A Priness cartridge)
- Inside is stamped with 'Familes are Forever' by My Pink Stamper
Super duper simple, probably the quickest card I've ever made!

Onto happier things. Look at my gorgeous babies!!! I realized I haven't posted a pic of them for a long time!


 Brittyn - 7 months now - is crawling! Look out!! Thank goodness she doesn't seem to be quite as busy as her older sister. And Bria - 2 1/2 - is talking up a storm and she's really starting to show us her opinions and ideas (sometimes it's not such a good thing! :)) I'm so thankful for them and my amazing husband. Life is great.

Your sympathy card is lovely! They are so difficult to make, especially when you need one. This is simply beautiful.

May your thoughts be filled with happy memories of your uncle.

I had to make a sympathy card for a dear friend who lost her mom. I really struggle with these kinds of cards. But thanks to you, I used your simple but elegant design and had it done quick. I used a different embossing folder because I don't have the one you used. But I still think it turned out okay. Thanks for the inspiration.
God Bless
