The Art of Life (Sympathy Card)

  So glad you could stop by. Has been a sad day. My Uncle Clinton passed away earlier today.  It's so hard to believe. He was such a great guy. Loved to play the banjo. Seems like he was always smiling. Even though I am sad I know that he Is rejoicing being reunited with his family In heaven. 

There has been several people passing lately and It never gets easy. So hard on the families.

Any of you that have made Sympathy Cards (Especially when needed) know that they are the hardest to make. 

Sharing this card that I made for my friend who lost her niece. 

  Used The Art for Life Stamp Set again for this Sympathy Card. I knew that I had had this Stamp Set for a good while so I thought I would check to see when It was made It's from 2005. I think It's a nice Stamp Set for Sympathy Cards.

For the sentiment Inside I stamped Thinking of You with deepest Sympathy for your loss.

This Stamp Set Is called Thinking of You " Inside & Out" from Cardz TV. I recently won this Stamp Set from Mary and I Love It. So nice having some nice Sympathy Stamps for those cards that you will be giving to someone that has lost a loved one. 

All of Mary's Stamps are high quality photopolymer and Made In the U.S.A. You can see Mary's whole collection of Cardz TV Stamps at-  http://cardztvstamps.blogspot.com/
