A Few Sympathy Cards

Here are a couple of cards for the Papertrey Think Big Challenge.  The guidelines were to have something big/oversized on your card, or a big focal point that takes centre stage... I've gone with the latter!

Sympathy cards aren't the easiest cards to make at the time you need them.  So I decided to make a few to have on hand.  They're simple - it felt wrong to embellish them more than I have for some reason...

This next one isn't exactly a sympathy card, more of a blue day kind of card.  I love the sentiment.

Thanks for visiting!
