Thinking of you...

This is the second year that I've been given the privilege to make this card. It's for a colleague of Will's who's husband lost a baby at 4 1/2 months of age. It is again my pleasure to make this for you, Jim.


Being a mother myself, it's such a difficult card to make. I've been asked to make a few cards to be placed on graves in cemetaries, so I make them on double sided card only. When they're placed in the cellophane they can be seen both sides then.

Materials:
Paper: October Afternoon.
Embellishments: Amy Butler for K&Company.
Brads: Stash.
Stamp: Say it With Stamps & BasicGrey.
Inkpad.

I can see why that's a difficult one to do Rosie but you did a lovely job, the sentiment under the image is perfect.

It is truly a beautiful card Rosie & very fitting.

I am facing the 1st anniversary of losing my mum & also in the process of making something but it's not easy so I feel for you. XX

Certainly a difficult card to make, Rosie, but you've done so beautifully - I'm sure it's much appreciated. x
