Sweet Sympathy for Friday Mashup

Welcome to another Friday Mashup! This week Heidi is our host and she brings us a sad, but important, challenge. October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Each year, approximately 870,000 families experience the loss of a baby during pregnancy or shortly after birth. To support these families she would like us to create a thinking of you or condolence card, and if you are inclined, donate the card to a local infant loss charity or support group. You can also send your donation card(s) to  Heidi (contact her at for mailing address), and she will collect and donate them to her local H.A.N.D.S. charity.

For my card I went with greens and pinks and a tree from the Lovely As a Tree set. This is one of my favorite sets to go too for a sympathy card, as the images are very poignant yet not overwhelming, and IMO nature is a wonderful way to try and soothe the soul in difficult times.

We'd love to see you over at The Friday Mashup!

  1. Create a "Thinking of you or condolence card."
  2. Create a card/cards and "Donate it to a Charity or Organization of your choice."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Thinking of you/Condolence Card and donate it to H.A.N.D.S via Heidi."



  1. Lovely card, Lisa! I agree nature helps to calm and soothe the soul. Love the soft pinks and greens and the pretty green ribbon

  2. Lovely, Lisa. I love how you phrased that, "soothe the soul in difficult times."
