Simple Sympathy

I've needed some sympathy cards lately, but didn't have a lot of time to put into them. Decided to go for a simple look - one in pink and two in blue.
Supplies used:
  • Martha Stewart bird stamp
  • Versa Mark
  • Blue chalk
  • Oval template
  • Martha Stewart corner punch
  • Border stamps from ????
  • Little punched flowers
  • White/blue/pink cardstock
Two of the cards were for people I don't know very well at all, but I wanted to give them a little gift to express my sympathy --- here's the little bucket gift I came up with:
It includes:
  • Apple Cinnamon Candle
  • Bath and Body works lotion
  • Sample size coffee
  • Hershey bars
  • Gum
  • Some "Tea to Go" packs to put in bottled water
  • Small Daily Bread Devotional
  • Soft Peppermints sprinkled over all
I actually made three of these -- the other two have Bath and Body works hand sanitizer instead of the lotion.
Just a wee something to let them know I care.

Those are perfect. Definitely something that will help express your sympathetic feelings. It would help me feel better about something sad, that's for sure. Delightful work :).

That's so sweet of you! I think your cards are really pretty and so well made, and the gift baskets are such a thoughtful addition.

When you are grieving everything appears much larger. Your baskets will always be cherished in your friends' minds. Where did you find the baskets?

The "baskets" were from Dollar General.
