I so love Clean and Simple especially for Sympathy Cards.  So today that is exactly what I have to share with you two CAS, Sympathy Cards.

Using one of my favorite Stampin' Up! Sets Lovely as a Tree I have chosen two images and stamped these in black onto White Cardstock along with my Unity KOTM Sympathy Sentiment.  I have them embossed them with Black Embossing Powder and then simply taken two tones of chalk ink (green and blue) and lightly sponged coloured over the image.  To finish I have added a ribbon and bow.

I made these yesterday during one of the storms passing over.  Today the weather is a complete contrast to yesterday.  The sky is blue and clear and the sun in shining and packing a punch.  I have just been for a swim and am hoping to get into my craft room a little later this afternoon.

I do hope you are all enjoying your weekend and fine weather.  Thanks for stopping by.

Danie, it is always tough to have to make sympathy cards but you have really done a very nice job on these. The Lovely as a Tree stamp set is one of my favourites and it look wonderful with the embossing and the sponging
