In Memory

I don't expect to be online today so have scheduled this post. Today is going to be a very difficult day as we celebrate the life and then say a final goodbye to a very dear friend who died of cancer two weeks ago aged 70. I thought I would share these cards with you. The top card is the one I made for her husband and the bottom one for her daughter, son in law and granddaughters. The sentiments are from Stampin' Up. Sympathy cards are the most difficult to make especially for those we hold dear and simplicity works best I think. Janet loved butterflies so I wanted to include the beautiful Henbury lane butterfly on the bottom one.

Sympathy cards have to be one of the most difficult subjects to craft - you have made a super job of these beautiful cards.
