Unfortunately, I had a sympathy card need come up suddenly. My niece-in-law, Kristy lost her mother figure on Saturday quite unexpectedly. I talked with her a little while today to see how she is doing and she says she is doing as well as can be expected in such a time. She has 2 ADORABLE little children to occupy the down time and she says it is a blessing to have them with her not only for her and her husband (my nephew) but for her Poppa who lost his best friend and companion of 53 years. Kristy says her little 2 year old girl keeps things on an upward beat and makes them laugh when they want to cry. Mimi, as Kristy called her, was a very sweet and giving lady who raised Kristy and provided a good home for her for many years. So, then I have this dilemma of what color, stamp set, what if any (<-- laughing) embellishments, etc., etc. on how to make this rather personal card and this is what I came up with in the only attempt I made and I like it. If you think of anything to add or subtract I am totally open to suggestions! The flowers have a few sparkly stones on them and they blend in a little too well but if you click on the photo it shows up better!
