It's been a challenging week.  Two very dear patients and my husband's best friend all passed away within 24 hours of each other.  I haven't felt much like stamping this weekend, but I knew I needed to create a few sympathy cards for the families.  Since I didn't want this to be a sad post with only my sympathy card sample, I took the sketch along with the same stamp sets and made 2 more samples.

The stamp sets that I used are Totally Trees from the Holiday Catalog and Better Together from the Annual Catalog.  The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches.  For each card, I simply changed the colors, designer series paper, and shape of the focal image.

By pairing an image-only stamp set with a fabulous set of greetings, you can create a wide variety of cards. The nice thing about the Better Together stamp set is that there are sentiments for the outside and the inside of your card.
