Ann Elise..Thinking Of You...

This card is so special to me because is for a sweet lady (Ann Elise) who lost one of her sons many years ago and today May 9Th is the anniversary of his passing.

I know by experience that it doesn't matter how long the loss took place, we are always going to have an empty space in our hearts. Even when some people recommends to let it go, nobody who hasn't experienced the same situation can imagine how hard it is.

With this card, I want to tell her " Thinking of you " today and especially on Mother's Day, which in America is this Sunday.

I wish you all a Happy Mother's Day.

Big Hugs,

Stamp: Penny Black (Friendly Flowers) 1187K. The Norwegian sentiment is from computer and says: "Thinking of You".

Inks: Re-inkers from SU. Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Really Rust

Accessories: Crystal Clear from SU, Brads from Making memories, Flowers from Doodlebug and a little heart charm.

Dear Lim,
your heart is really beautiful, I think it's made of something very special. That's probably why the card is so gorgeous as well.
My mom will probably be even more moved to tears than I am.

Love and hugs,

That is a `beautiful card you`ve made for Hannes mom! So sweet of you to do!
I`m sorry you both have had to experience the loss of a child. My heart goes out to you.

You make wonderful cards! I`ve been looking around in your blog, and you do amazing work! Love your coloring and the design on your cards!
And to top it off, your LOs are just stunning too!!

Many years ago I lived 1 year in Miami, in 1990, as an Au Pair, by the way. I lived in Coconut Grove and I also worked at Doubleetree hotel! :o)
Loved Miami, and I`ve been back to visit later on too!
