Nothing is harder...

This week Shannan Teubner lost her husband unexpectedly.  They had two sons aged 9yrs and 7yrs.  Although I don't know Shannan personally, I have visited her blog and have often seen her around SCS at release parties and so on.  Her story broke my heart - I simply cannot imagine how difficult this must be for her and her boys.  I just wanted to send a card to her and pray that she can find some comfort in the time ahead.

I used a base of Very Vanilla, layered with black and some Bella Bleu DSP.  A strip of black across the middle was punched on one edge with the Fiskars lace border punch, layered with vanilla and topped with black satin ribbon.  The sentiment is from JustRite's Thinking of You set and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, cut with Large Oval Nestabilities and mounted on a piece of black cut with the Label 4 Nestabilities and popped up.  To finish I added a black satin bow to the ribbon and a couple of black pearls to the top corner.

Stamps - Thinking of You (JustRite)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Black, Bella Bleu DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Large Oval and Label 4 Nestabilities, Fiskars Lace Border Punch, Black Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Black Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today and please remember Shannan and her family in your prayers.

This is beautiful and she will appreciate it very much. I didn't know about this. I need to send a card as well.

Beautifully done, Kathy. I too will be sending her a card. I can't even begin to imagine what the kids are going through...mine are only 2 years older than hers and when I think of what it would do to them just makes me want to cry for her. I'm sure she will appreciate it greatly.

Kathy, sympathy cards are the most difficult aren't they? Yours is gorgeous as are all of your lovely and elegant cards. I do not know of Shannan, my my thoughts and prayers are with her and her sons.
