You Are in Our thoughts and Prayers

Hello!  First, I wanted to say thank you to all who left me such sweet comments on my Flourishes release week posts last week.  It has been quite the week and I haven't had time to visit blogs or reply to my comments.

Unfortunately I had to make a couple sympathy cards.  My long time neighbor passed away last Saturday morning.  My neighbor and his wife lived next door to us for 6 years before we moved to Alabama.  Now they live just down the road, which feels like several miles sometimes.  He passed away suddenly due to complications of a health problem.  A coworker that I worked with for 6 years passed away in his sleep this week.  He was only 34 years old!  Then on Thursday my father's fiancee's daughter passed away suddenly due to an infection she picked up as well pneumonia.  She was only 23!


I wanted to make a pretty feminine card for my father's finance.  Her daughter was a beautiful young woman and I was inspired to create this for her.  I love the MFT felt!  It makes such pretty flat, flexible flowers that are perfect for mailing.  The leaves were die cut using some paper from DCWV that I picked up at my local JoAnn's craft store.




This one is for my friend and neighbor who's husband passed away.  Not that I couldn't give her a pink card for her husbands passing, but I think she will like the colors of this one better.


SUPPLIES USED:



I used the current sketch at MFT for both of my cards.  I SWORE that I ordered the Layered Treat Tag dies when I placed my order the other day.  I guess not because it wasn't on my order sheet.  Sigh.  I had to improvise and use a die that I already had.  I do not own the torn notebook die, so I used the scalloped border die from one of my blueprint die-namics sets.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

I'm so sorry about all the sad news ... what a terrible time ... It's unbelievably hard to lose anyone ... but young people ... that's the hardest to bear and nothing can be worse.
Your cards are beautiful ... My thoughts are with you ...

OMGosh, Heather! I'm so sorry to hear about all the tragedies in your life right now! Your cards, however, are beautiful, and I'm sure they will bring comfort to your friends. As for the inLinkz link limit, I've been using Thumblinky, which is similar, and it works pretty well--no limits and free.

Oh, no, that's a lot of tragedy in a short period of time. Devastating to the families and heart wrenching for all the folks like you who cared about them. These cards are both absolutely lovely and your thoughtfulness will be appreciated. My heart goes out to you and all who are touched by this sadness.
