Praying for You

A few weeks ago I unfortunately had to attend a wake for one of my friend's husbands, after he lost his long battle with cancer. It was such a sad time...They had been married for 36 years and were obviously still crazy in love with each other. It seems odd to consider one without the other. I always feel unsure about what to say to someone who is suffering such a loss and typically think there's not much I really can say that will offer much comfort, except to say that I'll be praying for them. This set from Stampin' Up! was perfect for my sympathy card. Not only does it include a "praying for you" sentiment but it also includes wonderful words for inside the card. It also includes a beautiful tree and this floral image. My friend is a huge gardener (you should see her beautiful yard...I love it!) and knew she'd enjoy something with flowers. The image is paired with my fav black and cream Crate paper. Ribbon is also from SU! and tiny rhinestones are from Taylored Expressions. Have a blessed day!

Such a pretty card. The black DP is so elegant against the flower. I'm sure your girlfriend was touched with your kindness.
