Sympathy Cards

Here are a few more sympathy cards I made. My mom is very thoughtful of her friends and family, and always sends out sympathy cards when they are needed. So I'm trying to get a stash built up for her before she needs them. I tried a few different colors just so I didn't get bored with making the same card over and over. I don't know if anyone else is like that, but sometimes making multiple cards for me feels kind of boring. So that's why I tried the red color combo this time, but I'm hoping it doesn't look too Christmassy with the red and green. Baseball practice starts today, so of course the clouds are rolling in! I'm hoping the rain will stay away, or I know of one sad little boy who will mope around our house the whole night.

Perfect sympathy card! I dislike making multiples of the same card. My mother asks why I don't make several copies of a card while I have all the stuff out and I told her it's boring!

Lovely cards. I think the colors are great. I too get bored when recreating a lot of something.

Should I be worried about “knowing” you considering the amount of sympathy cards you make? Dang girl…. They are quite lovely however….always so clean…. – and that’s not easy (at least for me).

What a nice thing to do for your mom. I'm sure she will appreciate them! I hope it didn't rain for your little guy...it rained buckets here.

This is pretty in both colors. Except for my Christmas cards, I don't usually make a card exactly the same more than twice. Like you, I get tired of it by then.
