With Sympathy to LQ

Rachel's housemate's mother suddenly passed away this week.  The girls are all taking it very hard as she was a young 52 and this was very unexpected.  

I used a soft celery green for the card base and the Memory Box Orchard Tree Frame Die in white.  I sponged some celery around the edges and stamped the sentiment from Thanks for Caring in VersaMark and clear EP.  The butterfly was created in Pink Pirouette using the butterfly embosslit.

This picture was done last minute at work under terrible lighting as I wanted to get it in the mail as soon as possible.  I've forgotten to take pictures of the last couple of cards that I've made and I didn't want to do that again.  


  1. Lorraine, This is a lovely card for such a sad occasion.
    I want to tell you how much I enjoyed your string calender post. I have never heard of such a thing! My daughter-in-law gave me a set of pens that would be perfect for this project. Wow! a whole book filled with these. Thank you for sharing! Elizabeth

  2. That must be hard for Rachel's friend - and the group of them living together. An unexpected death is always extra hard to deal with. I still remember when the mother of a friend of C's died totally out of the blue, when all the family were expecting somebody else who was ill with cancer to die at any was such a shock to them all.
    The one little butterfly is a lovely addition to the simple frame - I'm sure the card and the care behind it are both appreciated.

  3. This is so pretty. They will really appreciate it. I lost my mom when I was young. She was only 52 and it was sudden. Makes my heart hurt for anyone that goes through that. Beautiful card.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
