Be Still

DSCF6048

Today’s card may look like a valentine, but it is not; it is a very sad one….it is a sympathy card for a local family who lost their 30-year-old daughter to a rare form of cancer.  She left a husband and an adorable 2-year-old daughter; I went to school with her mom, and the pain they all must be feeling is unimaginable.

This uses the sketch #152 from Card Patterns (I swapped the oval from west to east as I felt it fit my image better):

and also fulfills the That’s Krafty Thursday #58 challenge from The Spotted Chick, which is to use kraft, as well as The Catered Crop recipe swap, which is to use a heart.    If you have any questions about the card or products, please send me an email (be sure to include YOUR email address so I can respond!).  Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for a new color challenge from the ColourQ!

Beautiful card, dear friend. What a very sad thing. I will send up some special prayers. Thanks for sharing your lovely card, and your Cassidy pics! That's a future stamper for sure!

Having a need for a sympathy card is a sad thing but your card is just lovely. I know you'll all surround this family with love.
Stampin' Up boxes -- you get to play with the goodies inside and Cassidy gets the box!! Fun for all!

Such a sad reason to send a card. It must have been hard to create. The hearts says it all.

I get the significance of the red heart in the tree for such a tragic loss. How unbelievably sad for this family. I just can't imagine the grief they must be feeling.

So very tragic. I can't even imagine what her family must be going through. Your card is beautiful. The tree with the red heart and the sentiment all work so well together. Thank you for playing along at Card Patterns.
