Sympathy Card Soft and Sweet

This is another one of the cards I made a while back for my Mom's card stash.
Little did I know how these words ring true.


Front sentiment:
Thinking of you with sympathy during this difficult time.


Inside:
Those who have brought us joy, made us laugh, and shown us love have given us the lasting gifts of a beautiful life and blessed our memories forever. ~Bonnie Rickner Jensen

Unfortunately, our family suffered a heartbreaking loss.  My niece's son, only nine months old, passed away last week after unexpected complications from illness.
His mommy and daddy had to do the unthinkable.
No parent should have to endure what they must be going through.
Through all of it, they've encouraged us to hug our children a little tighter, love unconditionally, enjoy the little moments and breathe them in.

This little fellow, has left an imprint on my heart that will forever be with me.

Supplies include:  Unity Stamp Company Everything More, Beautiful Life Blessed Memories. My Creative Time dies.

Included with Unity Stamp Co. FWF.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. Beautiful card, so cheerful and peaceful. I share in your sadness, unthinkable and unimaginable. My nephew and his wife had to say goodbye to their 8 week old son as he left their arms and went into heaven in November. The bling you added looks like tears in a pretty way.
