Craft-Dee BowZ April Blog Hop!

Craft-Dee BowZ  is having a blog hop!  One you won't want to miss....
Our April Blog Hop theme is "Sympathy". 

No one enjoys sending sympathy cards, but it's important to send thoughts of sympathy and support to family and friends during their time of sorrow.  Simply stated and tasteful are the best traits to go for when creating a sympathy card.  Subtle colors and embellishments are the norm.  You want the main focus of the card to be the thoughts you are expressing to the person that has lost a loved one.  I like to leave the inside blank and write a personal message to the recipient(s) of the card.

"Sharing in your Sorrow"
 
My single loop bow was made with gray satin ribbon and my Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool.

Now, onto the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog Hop!

I am so inspired! The theme is such a difficult one. I never feel that I am doing my best work when making a card for a sad occasion. After this great blog hop, I think I will make a stash of lovely elegant cards for those tough times. Thanks.
