Thinking of you

Hi! I hope you girls in the states had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It seems like this time of year all the holidays go so fast! I have so many Christmas cards to make and never enough time! I'm excited about Visions of Sugarplums coming soon! I will have a giveaway on my blog! Be sure to check back !

My friend lost her mom a few days ago, so I made her this card. It's so hard to lose a parent, and around the holidays it's even harder I think.
 
 
I embossed the background and water colored it . The butterfly is from Penny Black and theres three different ones, there all so cute! I did the same thing, embossed in green and water colored the rest.
 
I hope you girls have a wonderful day! Hugs, Char

Charlene,it's a beautiful card, and your friend will appreciate this one so much. I like that you didn't use the 'sombre' colors most sympathy cards can have. This one is not only beautiful with the sweet butterfly, the layout designs, but also uplifting. It is truly hard to lose a parent...a piece of your heart is gone away. TFS & Hugs

Lovely card. So sorry about your friend. That is difficult truly but even a small sentiment such as a card may give her comfort.

A beautiful card for your friend, Char--love the colors which are very peaceful to me. Not sure you ever get over loosing a parent. I still hear my dad's voice & can see his face so clearly even though it's 7 years this Christmas night that I lost him.
