Sympathy Card ~ Flowers & Butterfly

When we moved into our neighborhood 22 years ago May 1st we were blessed with some very special neighbors.
Some have come and gone moving away only to be replaced with new neighbors.
Our neighborhood is a small one with only 20 houses on a street that circles back to meet itself  before once again putting visitors back onto the strret that brought them here.
Sadly in the past few months our neighborhood has been touched by the death of two of our own.

This card is for the family of our most recent loss.
Her death came as a huge surprise.
She was the healthiest 70-something year old I had ever met.
She came down with a case of shingles and never recovered fully.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.


*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front 5.25 x 4 in. and embossed with the Cuttlebug Everyday Greetings Combo folder.
*Flowers embossed with the Cuttlebug Everyday Greetings Combo folder, cut out and adhered in place.
*Butterfly cut at 1 in. from the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge.
*Rhinestones from stash (Joanns)
*Sentiment stamp from Inkadinkadoo.

May your day always be filled with love.
