Thinking of You

Hi Everyone!

Recently a couple of friends lost their dear husband and father.
I must admit I never make sympathy cards.
Not that I don't know how but I just find it is the most difficult thing to make.
In the end, I made this Thinking of You card instead.

I got the inspiration from a Polish Cardlift challenge, here.
