The Paper Players #61 I'm here for you ......

Sadly, this is my last week as a Summer Guest Designer with The Paper Players. I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute working with these super creative ladies and have had so much fun over the last 3 months! Thank you so much for having me!!

This week Jaydee has a sketch for us 

I was in a very sombre mood when making this card. I had just got home from the hospital after saying what will probably be my last goodbyes to my hubby's dear Grandmother. I decided to make a Thinking of You card that could also be a sympathy card.

I'm hoping to get the opportunity to make another card using this great sketch later this week, so be sure to check back :)

We hope that you will join The Paper Players this week! I can't wait to see what you all come up with! Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations as well.

I'm sorry to hear about your hubby's grandma, it's never an easy thing to handle, but family and friends support can get you through.
Your card is lovely, I couldn't figure out what the image was until I looked closer and then I recognized it, what a great focal point and so perfect for your thoughts at this time. I'll continue to peek at your blog. I'm sure you'll be missed at Paper Players.
