Wildflower Jar Sympathy

well I have another post for today, but sadly, it's a sympathy card. I know a lot of people make these ahead of time, and sometimes I do, too. but the really special ones, for people who are close to our family, I make as we need them. that gives me a chance to really concentrate on the project, but also pray the entire time I'm making it. it's so comforting for me to be able to do this and helps me in a small way to get through the grieving process......

A very dear friend of ours passed away last week. She was the mom to 2 daughters who are close friends of both Tyler and Ryan. we've known this family for quite a while. Her passing came fairly quick, and the girls are devastated, obviously. Our family is still shattered by it.


So I turned to A Day for Daisies to find an image and Create with TLC for a beautiful verse. I hope this card brings the family some small degree of comfort.
papers are Echo Park For the Record, little yellow flowers were painted with shimmerz, and stamens on red flowers & jar handle were highlighted with shimmerz.

Until tomorrow, know that you are loved. :)
