Memories........FMS20



Not your usual sympathy card I know but it works for a lady who loved her gardens and lived a full life into her 90's.  Her family and friends have wonderful memories of her - you can't ask for much more than that!


                              


I stayed true to the Freshly Made Sketch this week and made a longer narrower card - 3 1/4 by 6 1/2 inches.
