A sad card...

This is one card that was hard to make. Another blogger that I follow, Courts Crafts posted this on her blog the other day:

" I have a request - most of us are card makers and a dear friend of mine and his wife just lost their 13 month old baby girl. It was something rare and in 30 hours she went from perfectly healthy to gone from their lives. There was nothing they could do. They were incredibly brave and donated her organs and already 5 children's lives have been saved. They are seeing the blessing in this storm and are leaning on God to guide them through this horrific time. Their names are Sean and Kjersten Post and their daughter's name was Brynnley.

I don't want to invade on their privacy, but if you would like to send a card to them, I would really love it if they knew how many people are praying for them and their situation." 

If you would like to help, please click on her name above to follow the link for more information.
I almost didn't post this, because I didn't want it to be in poor taste. But I truly struggled with this card - sympathy cards are a lot harder to begin with - but making one for someone who lost their daughter was particularly difficult, especially since I have two daughters of my own, and can't imagine going through such a loss. But after some prayer, I felt like the Lord led me to this poem, and I built the card around that.
The shapes were cut from Preserves, and I simply inked them a little, added some flowers and stick on pearls, and a ribbon bow. Please keep this family in your prayers - I plan on it.
