With Sympathy ...

Sadly we all need to make sympathy cards once in a while and on this occasion
I wanted one for my lovely MIL whose new Husband & soul mate was diagnosed just a few short
months ago with Cancer and sadly lost his battle just this weekend.
She adores my cards and really appreciates them, so although I need some of these
cards in my supplies I wanted a very special and unique one for her.

CAS is the order of the day with sympathy cards and this is so but I personally
created this lace die cut on my fabulous Silhouette Studio from scratch and I have to admit
I am really pleased with the result even thought it took many hours of work!

Thank you for visiting my blog today and may Steve bless him now rest in peace,
he will be missed very much but thought of every day x
