Bloom In Hope And Sympathy

Its never fun to make a condolence card, and yet this is a time when the thought that has gone into making a handmade card can be most appreciated. The comfort gained from holding a loving note sent by a friend or even an acquaintance, was something I hadn't realised until my husband and I lost our parents. I remember a card from my mother's doctor made such an impression because he mentioned how much he admired her feisty character and get-up-and-go attitude to life - all so true! Although it is often painful to try to find words of comfort, it is very important to try, so I always have a half dozen condolence cards ready to send, so I can choose a suitable card to write a personal note into. Perhaps this is something you like to do also.

This Hostess stamp set, Bloom With Hope, in the last Stampin' Up!® Annual catalogue was so perfect for these occasions, including an appropriate verse, for a bereavement.

'As time and memory
bring healing,
may comfort and hope
bloom in your heart'

There are some more great Hostess sets in this year's Annual catalogue too, but you need to host a party (or virtual party) to purchase Hostess only stamp sets. This means a minimum order of $250, before shipping, would earn you 10% of your order so $25 hostess dollars, and $30 for a $300 party. With Hostess stamp sets starting at $14 for clear mount, you could even get two!
If you have a question about anything, like how YOU can hold a virtual party, leave a comment or email me at

If you are needing to top up your craft supplies, you can always browse in my online shop, and if you are only purchasing a little, could you please add Hostess code 36JSEMF6 to your order at checkout?
