Sympathy With A Feathered Friend


Yippee, here I am, again! I hope you aren't getting tired of me, yet! I'm here with another project for you - Day 3 of My Growing in Unity Week, with Unity Stamp Company! Today, I have a sympathy card to show you.  If you're like me, you always struggle with making sympathy cards.  Usually, my go to stamped images are flowers, for sympathy cards... But, I got to thinking - How about using a stamped image that is more cheerful, so I cam up with this, and, I think it turned out nicely - Hopefully it will help comfort the recipient.

Today's card uses the bird from the Sometimes I Wonder (March 2016) sentiment kit, from Unity Stamp Company The sentiment is also from Unity Stamp Company, but it came in a grab bag, so I'm not sure which set it is from. By the way, did you know that Unity releases a new sentiment kit each month?! How cool is that?! Most sentiment kits also have an image or two in them, as well.  Be sure you check out the sentiment kits at Unity, they're awesome!

Anyway, back to the card details. I've colored the bird with Promarkers.  All papers are from my stash.  I went with a clean simple look today, too, being its a sympathy card - Therefore, I feel it shouldnt' be all sparkly and busy.

Don't forget to leave some love, today! Comment every day this week for a chance to win a Unity Grab bag. Be sure to come back tomorrow, too - You're going to really enjoy tomorrow's project!

  1. A very sweet card. I love that it is a card with not really bright and not really muted but just right for a sympathy card. I love the patterns and the bird is a sign that there will be another Spring day in the midst of sorrow.
