Melancholy Memories

Am I feeling melancholy because I kind of get that way when making sympathy cards? Or am I feeling melancholy because I actually NEED a supply of sympathy cards? Then there are the 'thinking of you in hard times' cards...

I "fussy-cut" the center vertical design paper so that the word "memories" is centered. Once I'm finished with this post I think I need to work on a brightly colored card. Or maybe just make a sympathy card that is less somber?

Not sure why these two photos are so vastly different in tone... The inside and the outside do match... For some reason the inside-of-the-card pic looks very washed out. Too lazy to re-shoot the photos...It's Sunday...I can be lazy if I want. Right?

  1. I think we all hate to make sympathy cards - but have to do it anyway.
    This is so lovely and I really like the way you did the inside of the card. Whoever this has to go to will appreciate it so much.
