Another "Sympathy" Card . . .

Hello there my darlins! I hope you had a great weekend . . . can you believe it's June already?! I guess I'd better dig out some Christmas papers and images! But maybe I'll wait until August because that's when Sugar Nellie is releasing a whole new crop of Winter/Christmas "Fairies" . . . and you know how much fun those are!! OK . . . enough with the teasers! I have a new Sugar Nellie DT card to share with you . . .
This card is a Sympathy card for an artist friend of mine whose brother recently passed away. I have to say that, while making "sympathy" cards is never fun, this one just sort of came together. This sweet image is "Melissa." She's from Sugar Nellie's "Simply Adorable" digital images and is available HERE at Funky Kits. I thought this image would be perfect for a sympathy card. Here's a close-up of this sweet little girl . . .
And a bit of a side view . . .

This is lovely Pat. Such a love image for a sympathy card and I love the verse. I may have to use this as I unfortunately have a dear friends funeral this week.

This is a very special Sympathy card - the image pulls on my heart and the flowers are gorgeous. I love that you used so much red. This flows together so well and is very comforting. Well done.
