A Prayer for You -- Sweet Sketch 5

This week I chose to make a sympathy card for a family who lost one of their twin daughters in a tragic automobile accident in Utah when an 800 pound elk jumped in front of their daughter's car. Three of their other children were also in the car. A blessing the others were not seriously hurt. I’m sure their loss is a difficult one. She is a very sweet young woman. Our prayers are for her family as they morn the loss of their sweet daughter.

This was a great sketch again. I loved using the Suzzix Scallop Oval…first time use. I found this butterfly stamp at Michaels and fell in love with it. It is a little smaller than the Stampinup butterfly that looks similar so that is why I purchased it. The Kiwi Embroidery Paper is treeless paper but has a wonderful texture and weight to it. I purchased it (the stripe) at JoAnn’s.
