A Sympathy Card

Sending a card to a friend I know that likes to scrapbook I realized I couldn't just send ANY card.

She is undergoing the loss of someone close to her and I wish her strength to get through it. 

Hoping my card all the way from NY helps.

I did try to make my card multipurpose. This is exactly 12 inches long, so can easily be glued down on a page with a photo in the top part. I am hoping she can whip up an easy page when she's back to feeling better and it helps.

In the weird way that scrappin' is somehow therapy, I have made pages of  funerals. Sometimes it's the only time when whole extended families get together. So, those photos are rare. 

Anyhow, I wish her strength. 

And, thanks Irini for that neat die cut I used on the front and the doily! You sent a present all the way from Greece that I am now sharing with a friend in a different state!
