Just in time, I broke down and bought a thoughtful stamp saying. It's so much easier to stamp it, then to try and write sympathetic thoughts down. I used a Close To My Heart stamp set of birds. They had beautiful swirls around them, but instead I just hand cut them out.
The paper is K&Co. I used less than cheerful colors. I was pleased with the birds working out well for such a theme. They seem kind of peaceful & angelic.
