A card made for a friend whose eldest Son passed away suddenly. I embroidered the design (from a CD) on a white, see through, 'crushed' terylene and double WSS. Set it over a soft background of praying hands and a cross. The verse on the inner leaf reads: Our memories build a special bridge, when loved ones have to part. To help us feel we're with them still and soothe a grieving heart. Our memories span the years we shared, preserving ties that bind. They build a special bridge of love and bring us peace of mind. The card and embroidery are a pale lilac colour which doesn't show well in the picture.

This is just perfect. What a wonderful card to give to someone that is in such grief. That must be one of the hardest passings to go through to lose a child.

This card is all completely homemade Glenda, I needed a special size to fit the embroidery - I buy artist's drawing pads in pastel and bright colours to make the card blanks. eBay is a good source of craft supplies or google 'craft suppliers' & I'm sure you will find some in your area for mail order.
