Sad News

I made this card for my grandma. Last Thursday her daughter (my dad's sister) passed away in her sleep unexpectedly. I feel very sorry for my grandma. She is 96 year old, and needless to say the loss of her daughter has a huge emotional impact on her. She is going through a very hard time, and I truly hope that she will be able to cope with her loss.

The design of this card is based on CPS Sketch 106.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: Making Memories Greenhouse Paperie Letter stickers: Prima Marketing Chipboard: Maya Road Ink: VersaColor Pinecone Tools: sewing machine

Thanks for stopping by.

Wow, this is really sad news. I think that losing a child is the worst thing you can go through, also when you are 96 years old. You're not supposed to overlive your children.
The card is really beautiful. Hope it helps her.

Hugs,
Leontine
