One of Those Cards...

... that you really wish you didn't have to make... a sympathy card;

With Sympathy Butterfly Card
Cardstock - Bazzill, Book paper - craft supply, Mask - Twiddleybitz (chipboard butterfly), Glimmer spray - Tattered Angels, Alphas - Adornit/Carolee's Creations, Twine - craft supply)

A friend of mine, who is in her last trimester of her third pregnancy, just recently lost her husband. I cannot imagine how she must be feeling. And those poor kids. I feel useless because all that I can offer her is a card and my friendship. I can't bring back her husband. I can't make the days and weeks ahead of her any less painful. I so wish I hadn't had to make this card. And I'm pretty sure sure my friend wishes she didn't have to recieve it. Why must life be so cruel?

I hope your day is a little brighter than mine has been!

Chloe the card is gorgeous, and the best thing anyone can do at this horrible time is to be a friend, It might not seem like much to you, but it will mean a lot to her :) Take care of you, she is very lucky to have you as a friend, just be there when you are needed !!!

Oh what a horrible tragedy.

You are most definitely doing the best thing for your friend right now, by just being her friend.
