Last week a friend of mine lost her father.  Even though she knows he has gone to be with his Heavenly Father it is still hard for the ones left here on earth.  Last year I lost my mother and it is still very painful.  I miss her every day.  I know that my friend is going through what I went through and my prayers are with her and her family.  She serves with me in our Young Women's group at church.  We thought it would be nice to have a card from all the girls we work with at church.  I hope it gives her some comfort.

This image comes from Marjie's Malarkies.  I colored it with Wonder Strokes markers and a touch of Stickles by Ranger.  The papers are from Bazzill, The Paper Co. and my stash 'o' scraps.  I had a sketch in mind but the flowers were just too large.  

I have entered this into the following:

Party Time Tuesday - Spotlight on flowers
My Time To Craft #176 - Easel Cards
Willow Sketchie - Sketch or lots of layers
Inspire Me Fridays #53 - Anything goes
