Morning and we can't seem to get a break here-Son got sent home from work on Monday with suspected fractured ribs,Dr sent him straight to A&E and no it's pneumonia!!!
Then we got a call from a nephew to say SIL had died.She has been in a care home for a couple of years with Dementia and end of life care for a couple of months,not eating or drinking so actually a blessing but still! I know people are going through worse but just seems one thing after another.So sadly a sympathy card was needed and this is the first all white card I have ever made I think.I scored the lines on the background,then added a smaller piece of card to add the flowers and bow -think the dies are memory Box but not entirely sure as package thrown-because I would remember whose they were!!!
DIL saw this and needed one for a staff member who lost her Dad yesterday,juat added some hearts from stash.

Sorry to read that your son has pneumonia Carol I hope he has a speedy recovery, Your beautiful Sympathy card will give comfort to your nephew, no matter that we know a relative is receiving end of life care, their passing has a deep effect, sorry for your loss
Life can really throw it at us at times Carol, sorry to read all this news. One of my boy's just discovered he's got a fractured hip, nine hours A&E as so much pain and could hardly walk, they said MRI needed but could be weeks, take painkillers so had it done privately, now GP's in a panic what to do next. What's it coming to?
Prachtige stijlvolle condoleance kaart Carol.
Beterschap voor je zoon.
Gosh, what a shock you must have had with your son and his pneumonia, I'm wishing him well and a quick recovery, Sorry to hear about SiL too, yes a blessing, but still it affects everyone with sadness too.

These are both absolutely beautiful white on white cards, Carol. I don't know why there often seems to be extra sadness in December.

Both cards are beautiful sympathy cards, life is so tough at times ♥
