Sympathy Cards

A dear friend of mine lost her husband recently and I made two cards. The first is a tree stamp that I wish I knew the company....if anyone knows...please share with me!!! I bought it as an unmounted stamp, but neglected to record the company. The tree is colored with copics (of course). The phrases for both cards were computer generated. The second flower stamp is by Magenta.
