Unfortunately, it's a fact of life that we all have the need for sympathy cards on occasion. They are my least favorite cards to make, but I've found some pretty scenic images that I've really enjoyed coloring, and they make wonderful cards for expressing condolences.
This first card uses a beautiful free image from Digital Two for Tuesday. They have a lovely image of an old mill with a waterwheel as well. I really love this homey scene! It's very versatile and could be used for other happier occasions, too. It would be perfect for Mother's Day, birthdays or for someone moving into a new home, to name a few.

This pretty bridge scene is from Imag-e-nation. They have a few more scenic digital images that are equally as nice.
This card is going to a family friend who lost his father very recently.

I hope you don't have any sad occassions to use these images, but they would certainly do for happier times, too.
