A Sympathy Card for a Special Aunty

Sadly, my sweet Aunty passed away recently.  She was really special and left me with treasured memories of our childhood when we used to have sleep overs at her house with my cousins, eating musubi for a night time snack before hitting the pillows, coloring books, playing ping-pong, and mostly the family get-togethers for Thanksgiving at her house.   Ohhhhh, so much ono food.  I will always remember her smile and kindness.

Here's the card I made.

Oh Karen I'm sorry to hear of your Aunt's passing, how very sad for you and alll the family. It's sounds as if you have lovely warm memories to hold on to and comfort you.
Your card is just perfect for the sad occasion.

Did you notice I have candy to offer, I've not got it on a sticky post, so you might have missed it, but I am happy to post overseas, so if it's something you would like I would love you to enter, take care, Kate x

Sympathy cards are the hardest to make, especially if it's for a loved one. You did a beautiful job, she must love it. I especially like your embossed background and your coloring is so pretty. Take care.

So sorry for your loss. Be glad of your treasured memories and you can think of her often about what a lovely lady she was and what she meant to you.
Your card is very tasteful and classy. It's pretty but not flashy... Sympathy cards are difficult to make, especially when it is for someone you care about deeply.
