Peace Within Sympathy

Stamping a Sympathy card, in my opinion, is one of the most difficult to do. 

Most other cards are for happy occasions: birthdays, weddings, babies, even get well cards have that optimism of hope for a better day tomorrow.  But with a sympathy card you are trying to comfort the person who receives it for the most difficult loss.

I had the sad job of creating a sympathy card for a friend who passed away at the young age of 55.

I chose the retired set Peace Within because Celia loved all animals and especially had a soft spot for cats. She took in a couple of strays she found wandering the streets, Shady and Jezzy were each in turn her closest companions.
