Quick Sympathy Cards

Happy Sunday All!
I'm busy today trying to get some of the Christmas decorations brought back downstairs and put away but since I'm taking a 'cooling off' break, (that running up & down the stairs will get you overheated and tuckered out!)  I thought I'd share the quick cards I created yesterday. 

I will have a craft show coming up in April and as I looked through my card stash I noticed I was short on sympathy cards.  So, here are a few quick cards that I thought came together beautifully using one sheet of 12x12 Ella & Ivy (Ethereal) designer paper.




I was able to get four A6 cards out of one sheet and I simply used the same stamp (old SU set) and a few different die cuts (mainly Sue Wilson) for my designs.  (The sheet I used is the one 2nd in from the left on the top row in the above photo.)




 
A simply inside verse was used, leaving room for any additional personal condolences.


 Okay ... I guess I'd better get back to work before I lose my steam! LOL  (I LOVE decorating for Christmas ... don't like having to take it all back down and put away! ugh)

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fabulous day!
As always . . .

They are so beautiful. I love that design with the pattern papers you chose and it is such a pretty die to show off the sentiment.

Beautiful cards Darlene! I've had my eye on that stack of paper for a while but the shipping cost more than the paper! Your post is making me think I should just pay it and enjoy it. ;0)
