With Sympathy

Hello friends

In the past two days I have heard of the death of two friends. This card is actually for an ex colleague, with whom I worked for about 20 years, whose wife sadly died yesterday. We met socially too so I do know his wife.

My Card

This is a very simple card. I computer generated the sentiment and printed it  onto white cardstock. I matted the spray of lilies onto cream then green cardstock and mounted it next to the sentiment. I then matted this onto green cardstock and mounted  it onto a white card blank.

The second card I am struggling with because this is for a friend I have known all my life! I know his wife is devastated but also glad he is now pain free. I will show this later no doubt.

Fortunately the snow appears to be thawing at long last!! Let's hope we don't get more for a while yet.

I hope you all have a good day!

love and hugs from Christine xx
