Petite Pairs sympathy card by Stampin Up and me


Hi dear Stampers.

How is your week coming along? I hope you didn't have as much snow as we did here in Calgary for the last 2 weeks. It has been cold, and wintery here in this part of the world.


I created this card for my sweet cousin. Her mom (my moms dear sister) past away 2 days ago.
She has been incredible in caring for her mom in the last .. many many years. I respect and admire her so much. I don't know how she and her brother did it.
But the strength that they have has blown me away.
I am so thankful to know, that my aunt is now with the One Who created her. No more sickness and pain.. What a gift that must be for her, to suddenly being able to walk again, talk again and ... BE again.
I wish there was a way for me to go to the funeral which is coming up soon. But the truth is, I am in Canada and all my family lives in the Netherlands. So that is not going to happen...
But my heart will be there for sure.
And they are all in my thoughts and prayers.



I used this sentiment from the 'Petite Pairs' Stampin Up set.

It has 18 of the cutest and most sincere sentiments.

Really lovely.



I used the sketch that Julee Tilman created for for my card from the Mojo Monday Layout Challenge this week #323

I hope you can still recognise the sketch :)


Well.. thanks for stopping by.

Inky hugs, Pauline
