The card I didn´t want to create


Sometimes there is cards that we don´t want to make but they are often the most important ones we create!! This is one of them. I am gonne send it to my old friend and her husband, who recently lost his little brother in a traffic accident. I am thinking of them so much! This young man was a father of two small children and I feel so sorry for them, they will not have their father when they grow up! I have only meet him a couple of times, and can´t say I know him, but I am thinking about him a lot.

I made it CAS, they only thing to do. I have used black and blue. 2 B. I made her crying, or at least I tried to. It was difficult to draw tears. I will send it later this week, since they are not at home at the moment.

I love life. I think it is the biggest gift we recieve in our lives. But it is so vulnerable. People we love and know  can disapear so fast. I will try and be better at telling people I love them. I am not so good at that.

Card with Circus Triexie stamp

I would like to enter:
Make it Monday: MiM #107
Passion for ProMarkers: CAS
Saturated Canary: at least 2 B

    Gillar din färgläggning.
    Tycker du har lyckats bra och som du skrev i lin blogg. - ibland fungerar det bäst utan text eller kommentar till kortet.
    Beklagar det inträffade och tycker om din gest att skicka en hälsning till de närmsta.
