My card for week #3
I made this card for my Mother-In-Law. I haven't seen her since my husband's funeral, and wanted to let her know that I am still thinking of her during this rough time.
I already had the tag but where it is dark green, it was orange. So I took a piece of card stock and punched a little hole in it and managed to fit it under the eyelet. There was also an orange strip at the bottom, which I cut off. I added the purple ribbon and wrote "thinking of you" on the tag. There was a different flower there but I popped it off and added this one to coordinate it with the rest of the card. It's not really white at the top, that's just the inside peeking. The two purple stripes were an after thought as I thought there was too much green between the purples. I don't know about you but I really like the color combo.

Prompt for week #4 - flowers
- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...
