I know that some of you are going through really difficult times right now. I guess that's the thing about blog posts... 'life' spills into them from time to time, enabling us (the readers) to catch small privileged glimpses that you choose to share with us.
So with that in mind I made this card...
I wanted it to be more than a 'sympathy' card or a straightforward 'thinking of you' card.. so I came up with a design that has a symbolic message... and one simple word.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Peeled Paint'
Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Walnut Stain'
Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Antique Linen'

Challenges I'm entering...

(The patterned paper is from my 'snippets' collection... and the butterfly and flowers were both stamped onto 'snippets' of white card)

(Challenge #197 'Die Cuts and/or Punches)
Sometimes being 'strong' is as simple... and yet as difficult as continuing to put one foot in front of the other.
