Blogger's Challenge110

The Blogger's Challenge this week is to use this sketch...



and here is my card...


This card actually serves a purpose. It has been a sad week in our little town. A young man the age of my son was killed in a car accident. I work with this young man's mom, so I made this card to send to her. I have really been struggling with this because I feel so much for this family. I know there is nothing I can do to ease their pain, but I hope they feel the support of those around them that love them.

Have a good and safe weekend!

This is beautiful. I'm sure that it will mean the world to your friends. Even though you have no words to share with them, you're still reaching out and letting them know you're thinking of them. What a horrible thing to have to endure. My prayers...

I dread making sympathy cards especially for those taken so young. I'm sure this gorgeous card will let your friend know how much you are there for her.
