Thinking of you card for Dorothy

My dear son in law lost his grand father this month.  His grandma is a real sweetheart and my heart breaks for her.  She had endured many trials this year and now is without the man she was married to for 67 years.  I wanted to just let her know I was thinking about her and that she will remain in my prayers, so I made this plain little card.  I do hope it brings her a little joy in all her sorrow.

Three nurses where my mother resides, and I meet once a week to scrap and share ideas.  We decided we would try doing a few challenges just for fun too so I found a sketch from Mojo Monday celebrating their 300th sketch.  None of the ladies had ever done a sketch and I really thought this would be a wonderful one for a first.  And it turned out to be great.  Their creations were wonderful.

Anyway, this is what I made from the sketch.  I chose the pink and green because they are one of my favorite color combos to scrap with.  I don't get to use pink too often when scrapping for the nine grand sons!   I inked and sewed edges.  I am not sure where the main sentiment is from but the circle sentiment is from Clear so sad to see them closing.  I used my good old nesties for the circle around it. The leaves are also a Spellbinder die. The papers are all just scraps out of my little (big) scrap stash.

I do not usually post the inside of my cards but thought I would this time.  It is fairly plain also.  The sentiment is from Clear Dollar.  I am so glad I bought the stamps before they went digi and now out of business. :-( 

  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Hugs to all and may God watch over you and keep you safe.
