Sympathy for Mary, LSC206
My cousin, Paul Torok, passed away Friday after battling colon cancer for several years. I made this card for his wife, Mary, who is just the sweetest, most delightful woman. They had only found each other 5 years ago, but I am so glad for the time they did get to spend together.
The SCS Challenge LSC206 (Say What You Feel) was perfect for this. The only stamp we could use was a sentiment, which I had already planned anyway. I knew Paul would be called home to be with the Lord soon, so I bought the cross for the card last week. Paul and Mary were deeply religious (he was a minister), so I thought a simple card, with just a sentiment and cross was appropriate.
