Sweet Pea Sympathy

As I sit here typing up some posts in a batch today, I realize I've made a lot of sympathy cards this year. Some are for the shop, and some are for people I know who are bereaved.

This card was made for a friend who lost his wife to a brain tumor. Broke my heart to see him go through the valley as his beloved suffered. Upon her passing, I knew exactly which stamp I wanted to use for a sympathy card, as her nickname was 'Sweet Pea'.


I pulled out Sweet Pea from Flourishes, and stamped the smaller image onto a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die cut, then used Copic markers to color and shade.


The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Words of Comfort set. I use that set a lot.


Thank you so much for your visit today.
