My Mother in law's gentlemen friend of 12 years died last Thursday, so I made this card for her.  They did alot for each other and I can only imagine the hole this is going to leave in her life.  Of course she isn't the type to show much emotion so it is hard to tell how she is really doing but I am sure she will miss him very much.

My MIL loves bright colors and so I went a little brighter than I normally do on a sympathy card, found these Cloudnine Design stamps at Jo-Anns and they have such pretty flowers in the set, I decided to just add a hint of color with pencils just to give it a soft look.  This is more of the DCWV Linen closet paper pack.  The bottom border was on one of the papers so I just cut it off at the scallop they had and added it to this paper that has a stitched quilted look to it.  Added liquid pearls to the dots along the scallop.  Spellbinders were used for the image and the sentiment.  Kaisercraft sentiment stamp.

We ended up with about 4 inches of snow on Saturday, just crazy and last night I heard them say something about more accumulitive snow on Tuesday night into Wednsday, this is just weird weather this year.  At least we got into the 40's yesterday so most of the snow is gone, just a bit in those shady spots that don't see the sun.  Our grass is getting long too but if it doesn't quite snowing I don't know when we will get to it.

Hope you all have a Great start to your week,
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment,

Connie, I am sorry your MIL lost her good friend. Your card is beautiful and will brighten her day.

I can't believe you got more snow. And that much to boot. We had snow in the forcast, but luckily we just have cold weather and the snow didn't make it here.

Have a great week!
Hugs and smiles

So sorry to hear of your MIL's loss. The card is beautiful, Connie. It will surely bring her comfort especially knowing that you are thinking of her as well.
