You know, sympathy cards are the hardest cards to make.  No, masculine sympathy cards are the hardest cards to make.  I just don’t know what to stamp when it comes to cards for the men and sympathy cards…. well, it’s just plain hard.

I needed a card for a friend who lost his grandmother and well, I’m embarrassed to say, I let time get away from me.  Please tell me I’m not alone on this one.  Someday I will learn to make up a stack of sympathy cards so that I can send it right away and not procrastinate.

Quick and Easy Masculine Sympathy Card by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com I created this card very quickly and I used the Flash Card system (although I needed a little extra piece of Very Vanilla for the sentiment and on the inside).  One stamp set, Love & Sympathy, was a great stamp set for my card.  I know flowers aren’t very masculine but the darker colors seemed to work nicely so I went with it.
