The hardest cards to make...




My daughter-in-law's mother just passed away, and I have to say it was the most difficult time I have had making a card. My DIL is young (early 30's) and loosing your mother would be difficult at any time of your life. But to have it happen so early and so suddenly would be horrendous. So my objective was - heart-felt, pretty, but not too "pretty". Wow...now I know what Halmark must go through! Anyway, I like the way it came out. It is my hope that the message helps carry her through the next months.



Inside reads "that memory becomes a treasure".
