With Sympathy


A co-worker of mine lost his mother-in-law last week and all I have in my stash of cards right now are a couple of thank you notes and then all Christmas cards.  The current CAS(e) this Sketch was the perfect sketch to play along with to make this card.  I took a little bit of liberty with the sketch by not placing the flowers symmetrically.  

How are your Thanksgiving preparations coming along?  I'm off tomorrow so the house will get a good scrub tomorrow before Pat's sister and brother-in-law arrive on Friday. We're not cooking this year so we have it a bit easier!
