Two Sympathy Cards

I don't know about you, but I find sympathy cards to be the most difficult to make.  The reasons for them are difficult, plus it's hard to know what to say.

Unfortunately I had to make two this week.  My BFF's Dad passed on 2/2/11.  The funeral was yesterday.  I made one card for my BFF, her husband, and my goddaughter Colbin.  The other card was for my BFF's mom. 



I was watching HSN a few weeks ago and saw a beautiful Anna Griffin card kit.  I knew immediately that I had to buy it.  It came with cards, envelopes, paper, embellishments, sentiments, and ribbons to make 30 cards.  I used it to make both cards.  There was only one "With Deepest Sympathy" medallion, so I used an Inkadinkado sympathy stamp for the second one.
