We received the shocking, sad news today that a man we have known for years has suddenly passed away. Our families’ lives have been loosely intertwined for over 50 years – his family was at school with mine, my son has been friends with his younger son from early childhood. So it was with heavy heart that I made this card for his family, particularly his widow who is a friend. The inspiration for this was challenge no 157 over at Muse, I really liked the way the sentiment filled the gap. I am also going to enter this in the Flower Power challenge at Stamping Sensations.
The flowers are by Altenew, coloured with Zig Clean Colour pens. The stamped greeting is by Hero Arts and the diecut “sympathy” is a new purchase from Clearly Besotted – I didn’t think I’d be using it quite this soon.
