Sympathy in Orange!

*** This is my second post for today, please scroll down if you are here for AnnaBelle’s Friday Challenge ***

Here is a card I made for an amazing woman whose husband died after a long illness.  She is such a fun bubbly person that a ‘normal’ sympathy card would just not do.  I was inspired by the ‘chair’ image from Jay Gee’s current challenge and used a sketch (yes, you heard me right) from the Hero Arts August contest blog.  Nearly finished my week of night duty….  I feel like a walking zombie, topped up with tea and pepsi for added fuel!

  1. Always glad to find another pepsi lover 🙂 Your card is so striking Therese, I just love that colour.

  2. A lovely card. Sympathy cards are not easy to make but you have done an awesome job. Hope you survive the ND…I feel tired just thinking about it!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous, and so perfect for the recipient from the sounds of it.
    Switching shifts is a miserable thing – DH has to do it now & then, and yep, he’s the walking dead during & even after. Yucky!

  4. Therese, she is going to absolutely love your gorgeous card! Love your design and colors and the sentiment font is great!
    Hugz2u…you are a wonderful friend to have!

  5. I love orange colour and you have made the most beautiful sympathy card, Therese! Love the inner stamped panel and how the card is slim too. Great work as always:)

  6. Even sleep deprived you churn out stunning cards!! Not an easy subject at the best of times and I’m sure she would have loved it xx

  7. What a perfect sympathy card and beautifully crafted, a close friend of mine lost her husband recently and she too is bright and lovely as told me that she couldn’t look at the classic sympathy cards as they made her too sad , this is guaranteed to cheer her up.
