I was in need of a sympathy card this week after hearing of the unexpected drowning of the husband of a mom whose kids attended the same elementary school mine did. It is heartbreaking as they have three children, the oldest being fourteen and the youngest nine. The autopsy found he had a brain tumor at the base of his skull which most likely caused a seizure when he was in the water, causing him to drown. So thankful for the wonderful school community that has rallied around the family and many close friends that will walk along side them during this difficult time.
I used this wonderful verse from New Mercies and over stamped it with the foliage image in the same set for some dimension. Added a secondary "praying for you" sentiment, along with a bow and some butterflies to finish things off.
Thanks for popping by and if you want to see which cards I chose to highlight for this week's VLV sketch and Inspiration Photo, head on over to the Viva La Verve blog and check it out.
Wishing you a fabulous day!
