With Sympathy

I'm posting a little late tonight. I had a ton of things going on today that I NEEDED to finish up before I could go down in my workroom and make a card.

My uncle died on the 2nd and I wanted to send my aunt a Sympathy card.

I find masculine cards are difficult enough but to make a masculine Sympathy card was quite a challenge too. I figured I'd stick with blues. Flowers.... well, it was the only sympathy set I had. Plus a car or train hardly seemed appropriate. Had REALLY he been heavily into cars or trains it may have worked. SO I stuck with what I had and came up with a fairly masculine card.

And to keep up with the mess down here I am going to put a few of the things I used away but not all of them. I have much better things to do with my time!!! That is the whole key to my messes. I've got better things to do than to clean up each time I stamp. SO I put away what I used plus a couple of other things I know I'm done with and I think I'm doing pretty darn good!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting,

This is lovely, and I think since the recipient is female (your aunt) it is entirely appropriate! So sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry for the loss of your uncle, but I must tell you that your card if lovely. I too struggle with masculine cards. I can't seem to find anything that I like so I usually end up purchasing one. This card is beautiful and not too feminine and perfect for a man.
Thanks for sharing.

Wanda, first let me say that I'm sorry to learn of the loss of your uncle. My thoughts are with your family during this difficult time.
I find masculine sympathy cards to be a challenge as well, but this is a beautiful one.
