Wintertime Sympathy Card

 Hello, Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. I think I have gained some weight with all the parties, But now that they are all over it's time to get back on track.

I think that we all would agree the hardest type of card to make is a Sympathy card. I have made one for a family member that lost her grandmother. So I thought I would share it with you all.

I'm pretty sure this is the first time I have made a sympathy card during winter. I knew I wanted something more on the simple side. 
So I thought a red cardinal in the tree would be nice. 
Not sure if you have ever heard that when you see a red cardinal it's your loved one that has passed on coming for a visit. Nice thought isn't it. I guess you never know.

Well that's it for me, I am super tired tonight.  I have totes and boxes all pulled out. Have been taking down Christmas decorations. I still need to take the tree down. 
Maybe I will get a burst of energy later and get it done. I have been dreading it. I love looking at my tree. 

I will be posting some things that I have crocheted in my my next few post. Hope you can make it back. Hope you all have a happy and safe week. Again thanks for visiting.

  2. Your card has such a quiet, comforting look about it. It's absolutely gorgeous, and the recipient will cherish it.

    I'm with you on the Christmas tree. Mine has to come down in the next day or two. We haven't turned the lights on in a couple of days because it's so dried out, it may be a fire hazard, but it's still pretty to look at.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your White on White with a Pop of Color project with us at Cut it Up. Have a happy, crafty new year!


  3. What a simple but beautiful card. I love that embossing folder and nothing is more pretty than a beautiful cardinal. I know what you mean, I always enjoy putting up the decorations more than putting them away. The house always seem so empty and bare once everything is put away for another year.
