Mojo Monday #135
Good afternoon,I had to make a sympathy card for a dear friend of mine,her father passed away a week ago.I wanted to make it classy,yet simple and I didn't want any flowers.I don't usually make cards with  just sentiments on the front,but I am pleased with the end result.This is such a sad time for anyone and there is nothing you can say to make it all go away,but I know my friend will appreciate this and know that I am thinking of her.Sympathy cards are always hard to make so I headed for Mojo Monday  to help me with this one and the sketch was perfect.Well off to do some cleaning,catch up with you all later.
