A sad ending to a happy day...

After spending a wonderful day visiting with my daughter & her family, I arrived home to find the news that a friend & collegue of many years had lost her husband this morning.  So, instead of working with the new stamps I bought today, I picked up my favorite sympathy stamps to work on some cards for her.

Since we have a rather large office & 2 other locations here in town, I decided on 3 cards so everyone will have a chance to sign.

This is an old standby stamp I've used many times & always makes a nice card. It's hard to see, but the background is textured with tiny swiss dots.

This tree is probably my favorite choice for a sympathy card.  Somehow the curling branches just always seem calming. Although you can't see them well, there are some added seed pearls among the branches.

I think it's fair to say that nobody wants to have a reason to make a sympathy card.  Especially for a friend, but I guess it is part of life. And hearing of someone else's loss always makes you all the more greatful to still have the ones you love in your own life.

On that, I am off to get some much needed rest. It was a really long day.
