Thinking of you


I had a request for a card for a lady to give to her sister who sadly she will not see again as she is very ill. So she wanted something very personal that she could send to let her know she was thinking of her. It took me a while to think of something and I finally decided on going with a sentiment on the front and an angel on the inside. What do you think?
The sentiment I found online, the angel is from Daisy Company, the papers are K& Co, love the vintage look to them so added lace and pearls to finish it. The die is from spellbinders which I layered up. I added some flowers from my stash and punched some leaves.
I would like to enter this into
Stampin Sisters in Christ - thinking of you
Scrappy  frogs Challenge - lace
The crazy challenge - lace and/or pearls
Incy Wincy - vintage
Alphabet Challenge - anything
Saturday Challenge - blue
CES Challenge - vintage
Paper pretties - sentiment focal point
As you can see I am up and about but can't eat or drink anything till I get my test done at 12. Just dropped my daughter off at the airport so trying to fill my hours till I have to leave for the hospital:( Funny when you know you can't drink that's the time you really really want some water:(
Have a nice day everyone.

Hello,

I have to agree with Miria, you always get the right words for your cards and this demonstrates that perfectly. I quite got a lump in my throat reading about who this card is for.

You'll be absolutely fine for your test and it will all be over faster than you know especially if you get the date rape drug I got last time - blimey its amazing stuff!
Thinking of you Pinky.
