My first post for the new year isn't a happy one....

The holidays are usually a very happy and festive time of the year, but sometimes it is also sad when you learn of someone passing away.  I was in need of a few sympathy cards this week so this is what I've created.

I happen to be away from my home where all of my stamps are so I had to improvise and use the computer for some of the sentiments.  In printing from the computer I thought it might be interesting to use a format I've seen many times by Maile Belles of PTI.  Most of her cards are very CAS,  often she cuts the card to include the sentiment separately, a feature I really like, so here is one of my cards using her tried and true format.

The second car (without a sentiment) I used the same image and heat embossed it after stamping with Versamark Ink.

Here is a picture of the inside of one of the cards.

I think this is a very serene and calming image and perfect for a sympathy card, hope you agree.
Please feel free to leave a comment.
Thanks for looking.

Nancy ... you are just posting up a storm!
I've been sick and decided to chill with the techy stuff for a while, but I guess you slipped in and posted AGAIN! WOWZER!
Love both the cards..but the split image/secret sentiment is my fav. The image IS perfect for a sympathy card too, in fact I like that whole set for sympathy.
