My Grandmother passed away last night

I got a call last night from my mother about 7:30 p.m., saying my Grandmother passed away peacefully and that my Dad was there. I decided that I should make the wonderful nurses and doctor's a special card, basically to say thank you for all they did for her.

The first picture is of the outside of the card! I used Mellow Moss for the base of the card, then I stamped the "Doodle This" flourish onto a lightly marbled cardstock from Carousel using a Green Dew drop ink pad. I then stamped the "Jolie's Fleurs" flower image onto the same marbled cardstock, I colored it in, then attached it to the stem using the mini pop up dots. I also cut a piece of chocolate chip cardstock (from Carousel) to size, then attached the stamped flower/stem to it using the photo stickers. Next, I attached those things to the Mellow moss card base. I then thought that the card needed a little something else on the front of it, so I stamped the "Just a Note" sentiment onto it. That sentiment stamp is from the NEW $1.5o stamp set from Michael's, and they are the clear acryllic stamp sets. The second picture is of the inside of the card, just stamped a "Thank You" sentiment on the inside...sorry the first picture is so dark it doesn't look this dark on my camera ( how frustrating is that).

Hi Catherine,

My deepest sympathies again on the passing of your grandmother. May she be at peace now.

Your card is just lovely and such a wonderful gesture. The nurses will really appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Let me know if I can help out in any way.

Big hugs,
