Sympathy Cards featured on SRM Blog today

Hey there!  I am back with two sympathy cards featuring SRM Stickers.  Awhile back I shared a sympathy card I made for a friend's Mom here.  Today I have a new card I made for my friend.  Loss of a loved one is a difficult and delicate situation for anyone to endure and I strive to make cards for those in this unfortunate situation to show I care and I am thinking of them.  
This is the card I made for my friend's Mom.  She is a fellow paper crafter and is always making super cute things.  I have only met her briefly once and yet she still thinks of me and is kind enough to send crafty goodies via her daughter to share with me!  That is one incredibly sweet lady!
As I mentioned above you can see the paper supplies and full details about this card in this post here.  

My next card was made for my dear friend.  She is always upbeat and has a laugh that can turn any frown upside down.  Did I mention she also has an incredible singing voice?  Amazing to hear her sing!  She also knits and get this... she spins her own yarn!  These are just a few of her talents!  When I say this lady is crafty, I mean in every aspect.  She keeps encouraging me to come to her knitting night at her house but it scares me!  I am sewing challenged after all.  :-)  Can you imagine me with two needles trying to work a ball of yarn into something worthy?  Nope.  Probably not going to happen.  LOL!  Anyhow...

This card has bright colors because quite frankly, when I see her, she reminds me of sunny days!  I used some Authentique paired with Lily Bee for this.  Lots of punches for the ovals and rounded corners.  
The SRM Sticker sheet used  for both of these cards is #51016 and can be found here.  I cut the border sticker down which is a simple cut you can do to expand the use of your stickers.  
Creating a sympathy card does not always have to be dreary colors with a lily.  I wanted to share that you can celebrate the life of someone by also using butterflies, birds, and other aspects of nature.  I hope you will find a little inspiration here and thank you for stopping by!

You are so right, it is always so difficult to deal with the loss of a loved one...but what special and beautiful cards you have created to let your friends know you are thinking of them. I absolutely LOVE these cards and love that you made something personal and upbeat for your friends. Sympathy does not have to mean dark and dreary, that is for sure. These are gorgeous, Amy!
