Butterfly Sympathy Card

Hey there Bleeps!
 Today's card isn't one you like to make....but sometimes it has to be done. My husband's uncle isn't doing well.....they have called hospice in and pretty much said it could be anytime now. So, I thought I'd make a card, so that way when he does pass.....we can just mail it out....since they live out of state. I know it's part of life.....we are only here for a moment....but it never gets easy seeing someone you love and care about leave. Especially, when they linger on, so hard to watch our loved ones suffer. Please keep Todd's Aunt Billie and their family in your prayers ....no matter how old they are and even though they have lived a full life, it's still hurts!
 I kept the card pretty simple and started to add some ribbon.....but decided against it.....hope you like it.
 Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend ;)

Holley, your family are all in my thoughts, it doesn't matter how old people are, it never gets any easier. Your card is stunning just as it is xx

Holley - this is a lovely card - I think I will have to CASE. I make cards for all the employees at my work - and we do need sympathy cards. Thank you for sharing.
