The Beginnings of a Sympathy Card
Today I received a handwritten letter from my friend Peggy. She was the leader of the Bible Study group that I went to at the Catholic Church in Northern New Jersey. She is in her late 80's and is such a sweetheart. We've kept in touch since I moved to North Carolina. I was so happy to receive her letter.
I was very sad to read that her husband recently passed away. He was 92. Peggy has a strong faith and my prayers are with her.
I'm making a sympathy card. I love this wildflower bouquet stamp and will add a Bible verse stamp to the card as well. I tried using watercolors to paint the flowers but that didn't work out. (I need to buy some watercolor paper.) Instead, I decided to use my fine tip markers to color the flowers in. I then cut around the bouquet. Tomorrow I will choose pretty floral scrapbook paper to add to the card front and then add the flowers.
If you have a few moments, would you please remember Peggy in your prayers? Thank you.
