"Jars of Joy"

































Unfortunately my FIL passed away last week, he was 91 and had been ill for quite a while, he had been diabetic for 40 years and it took its toll on his health, he was almost blind and found it hard to get around. He is now at peace, we will all miss him.    We have lots to sort now so my crafting may have to take a back seat for a while.

I did have  chance to make one more card for the Moxie Fab Challenge "Jars of Joy" Just a simple card using the jar as a vase and adding sunflowers coloured with distress markers.

Sally, such sad news about your father in law, you are in our thoughts.

Such a lovely card I like the jute fabric in the jar.

Sorry to hear about your FIL. Even when they are old and ill, there is still a lot of sadness when they pass. Thinking of you and your hubby and all the family.
Your jar of flowers is very pretty Sally.

Sally,I know it is so hard when we lose a loved one or friend. We"re never ready for their life here to end. Just think that he is now still loving you and watching over his family. I will keep you in my prayers.
I love you card with the pretty sunflowers.
