Hi, Carol - Love everything about your card, and want to make one similar - your colors and theme are very feminine and a little Vintage-like,making it especially beautiful. I'm sorry to hear about your son. How devastating. I hope he is soon able to move on, and eventually, find a magnificent place in his soul which will bloom, and maybe after a while, even find another love. Your granddaughters sound like pure delight! hugs, de

Your criss cross card is just soooooooo beautiful. Love the sewing theme, especially the scissors.

Oh, I'm sorry about the bad news. I know your heart aches along with your son. It hurts so much when our children hurt. I'm glad you have your granddaughters for tea.
