Kraft Sympathy Card

DSCF1334
The Kraft Journal’s Make it Monday challenge was to make a clean and simple card; unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card, and had this little bird fluttering around on my desk unused, so I put it to use:

I think this is probably a little unusual for a sympathy card, but I have used this tree image before for the same occasion, so I just “wintered” it up a bit with the cardinal.  I even added a few little bird tracks in the snow!
I also wanted to share this little candy tree that I found recently from Brenda Quintana:

This girl is a GENIUS!!!  This is so stinkin’ cute and easy as pie!  She gives you directions for a single one AND multiples, if you’re making several, or have a class to do!  I did wheel the outside of mine:

but it’s not necessary.  I cut out several and my sister and nieces and I did them after our Thanksgiving dinner!  I can’t wait to make some more!  Thanks for visiting today!

Love the photo of Cassidy. Micah likes to take my iPhone5 and take self portraits now that he nows how to use it.
Love your card and I think it is a perfect Sympathy card. I find those to be the hardest kind to make.

Your card is simply stunning, and I've made a dozen of those Kisses trees too - aren't they fun to put together?! Love today's picture Ha Ha!!

Beautiful card, perfect for the sentiment. And I just love that little Christmas tree project! The chocolate wouldn't last very long though :)

So sorry you needed a sympathy card, but this one is lovely and the cardinal is the perfect touch. Thank you for sharing your card with us at The Kraft Journal.
