Stampin' Up! Sitting Here

Sitting Here by Stampin' Up! is a great stamp set to learn masking, water colouring and picture creation.  I created these examples for class...

Stampin' Up! Sympathy Cards

Hello and welcome to a post of cards that one doesn't want to make...Sympathy cards...  I struggle with these the most - do I have too much colour, is it too boring, is it too this and that.  Hmmm do you struggle with them?   I've bitten the bullet and created a few because (always a reason) I had some dear friends lose close people and I wanted to give them a card, let them know I felt their heavy hearts and to let them know that I was there if they needed a shoulder....
