Heartfelt Creations Sympathy Flower Card

Hello, Friends.  Have you noticed that as we grow older, more of our friends and family are getting ill, injured or dying?  I'm sorry to bring this up, but it is a fact of life.  I do not like making these cards, but am finding "Get Well" and sympathy cards are needed by me more and more often.  I guess that's the circle of life also.

Here's a sympathy card I made for Heartfelt Creations, with directions on how to make it.
