Thinking of You

Today's card is for the boy next door and his parents. The boy has been in hospital for a few weeks and we found out last Wednesday that he is seriously ill. It's uncertain what the future holds for him. We truly hope that his doctors will be able to find the right treatment for him. The card is based on the card in this post from Betsy Veldman. I threw in some blue since it's for a boy.

  2. Ingrid........I just love this card. You did such a fantastic job with those light leaves. Absolutely love the blue flowers! They really make the flowers "pop". I'm sure the family will appreciate it.

  8. Occasions like this remind us the reason we make and send cards. Being able to send your thoughts and wishes in paper form. Such an uplifting card for what must be a very difficult time.
