Sympathy cards

At last the weather is getting better. I go to school every morning dressed like it is summer and then feel foolish as it feels like winter!
I have had to make a few sympathy cards this week unfortunately.. The first one is for a teacher at school who's mother suddeenly died. It will be sent from the school. The other cards are one I will send from myself to the teacher and the other 2 to a family who have just lost their mother/grandmother. She was a lovely, lovely lady and will be missed greatly.
I personally feel that sympathy cards should be quite simple and that is how I nade the cards. The white and black papers are actually from Making Memories

Speak to you soon
Love sarah
p.s. to those of you who have enquired about my mum and dad, they are much better and doing well. Thank you


  1. I find these cards so darn difficult to get right but you have managed it hun, with style and elegance. These are all really lovely and I am sure will be very well received (under the circumstances). Beautiful. Sxxx

  4. I ment to say, funny comment about my silver platter! hehe, I love it and it is very good to take photos of cards on because the the card rests on the edge of it and a just have a candle behind the card to support it, when it is not in use I always have it close to hand displaying candles and shells etc from the beach :O)

    Hugs Nina
