The cards that are so hard to make

Over the last few weeks I have been asked to make quite a few 'thinking of you' cards to be sent to people who have been diagnosed with terminal illnesses. 
Yesterday I was asked to make a sympathy card. 
I find these types of cards so hard as they are so easy to get wrong. It's finding a balance of 'comforting but understated'. 

In my stash I found a Hunkydory topper and backing sheet for sympathy cards. 
I made two cards, that way the customer can choose which one they think is more appropriate. 





I hope they are suitable and that the recipient gets some comfort from it. 


I just want to say thank you for all the lovely comments that people leave, as well as a huge thank you to the lovely people who have donated towards my sponsored slim. 

Loves of hugs and <3 to you all,

Lisa xxxx
