Thinking of You 31

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, June 18, 2016 @ 5:29 AM | , , ,


Hi! I hope you are having a great Saturday! Today I have a trio of quite similar cards to share featuring pretty flowers from the PTI Vintage Linens stamp set which I bought months ago and never used until today. I was in need of a Thinking of You card for my dear sister who has endured 12 weeks of chemotherapy, a bilateral mastectomy and 2nd stage reconstruction surgery for stage 3 breast cancer. She has opted out of radiation but will continue with 7 months of chemotherapy. 
The next two are sympathy cards for Scott's family members who are in my thoughts and prayers. Scott's 53 year young cousin passed away last week.

 For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:

Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
