When words help

I had three thinking of you cards to make recently, this is one of them. This was for a Mum who had lost a lifelong friend and her daughter wanted to give her a card to get her feelings across. She was very pleased with this and so was I. I spent ages searching for the right words for such a delicate situation.

Papers - from my stash
Words - google
Embellishments - prima flowers, added rose buds and some punched gold leaves

I would like to enter this into the following challenges
Card Making Mamas - embellish it
2 Sisters - thinking of you
Paper Sundaes - spring blossoms
The Crafty Pad -  flowers
The Crazy Challenge - just add flowers
