Sympathy Card



My neighbour's Dad died yesterday so I needed to make a card for her. Rather busy day so had about half an hour to put this together. I matched the colours to the flowers I bought her. Never quite sure about what to put outside and in so kept the words simple - inside read ' With Our Sympathy at this Sad Time'. Would be interested to know what other people put, I'm not really into verses and I feel that I can only put something with a religious leaning if I know that the recipient will appreciate that.

Beautiful card

Your card is beautiful. I usually put.... Thinking of you at this sad time or.... You are in our thoughts at this sad time.

Beautiful card Jean. Like you I only use religion if I know the recipient would appreciate it.

It totally depends on who I'm sending the card to for what I write inside.
Love the card Jean and the idea of matching it to the flowers is a lovely touch.
I try to keep off the word Sympathy but that is only becuse I personally am afraid of sympathy as it makes me break, I normally write something along the lines of So sorry to hear of your loss, or thinking of you and your family at this sad time, If I know the person well then it would be a personal message to them.

Stunning card

I agree wording is soo difficult I love that you kept it simple I know there are some poigniant ?spelling verses, we did a file at work for relatives - but some are a little heavy if you know what I mean!!

Such difficult cards to make but this one is just perfect, it's beautiful, so elegant and the sentiment is just right too.
