My friend called the other day to tell me her best friend's mother is under Hospice care. She asked if I could create sympathy cards to be ready to mail to her friend and her two sisters.
Becka loves the color green. She loves birds (all animals, actually) and flowers. I hope she finds comfort in her time of need when she opens this card.
Laura loves the color red and poppies. I chose this paper for her and finished it off with a heart and a full tulle bow.
"Anything girlie" was the request for Kathy's card. I'm hoping she sees bright and sunny days again - just like the sunny yellow on this card. The settee's extra touch just made me happy and I am hoping it will make her smile, too.
If you look closely, you will see that there is a butterfly on each of the cards. If there aren't any on the paper, one is added to every sympathy card I create. I've been told butterflies are a symbol of life after death because of its stages of transformation from egg to adult.
These girls are going to have some rough days ahead of them - I remember all too well. If you still have your mom, tell her you love her and give her a hug.
