~Making every day a memory!~
I saw a poem the other day that resonated with me ~
and I read it just at the time I needed it the most :)
"A bear teaches us that if the heart is true,
it doesn't matter much if an ear drops off."
So very true!
My friend's dad recently passed away and I was so sad for her
as that's a heartbreak I'm familiar with.
But rather than create sympathy cards, she had a card drive
and asked for cards with a bear somewhere on it for him.
What a sweet idea to remember the fond memories and
celebrate his love of bears <3
My card is using Lawn Fawn's Smooth Sailing and Life is Good.
To create this, I used heavy #120 Accent Opaque cardstock
and made a 'porthole' for the sky and waves.
I cut/colored all the pieces and layered them to my card
to create an ocean/beachy vibe.
I'm sure she will receive cards from all over the globe
and I wanted this one to say "Miami!"
And that's my card :)
Thanks for stopping by!
