With Sympathy...

Never the easiest of cards to make but ones that mean so much to those who receive them. Two close friends are going through some rough times at the moment, one has just lost a father, the other is preparing to lose theirs soon.
I was worried because I work away a lot from home that when the time comes I would not be able to take the time I would want to on the card for our second friend so I made one just in case (hoping that I won't have to use it anytime soon, but realistically knowing I will)

I used a layout from Splitcoaststampers sketches challenges to help in the process, the cardstock is all from the new range of DCWV La Creme, the image stamp is one of the new ones from Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen range, and I think the sentiment is from Stampendous. Both cards are slightly different but on just.

I put a poem inside each of the cards on a parchment insert that we used on my Dad remembrance bookmark, I will be sharing that poem with you on Sunday (Fathers Day). It is beautiful, and 4 years on I still have that bookmark on my desk and each and every time I sit there I see my Dads and occasionally I read the poem again and it manages to make me smile and cry all at the same time!
