To everything, there is a Season...

Truer words were never spoken.
This last week was a difficult one for my family, it was spent saying our final goodbyes to my Grandmother.  Her life ended on Friday the 15th, which also happened to be my own Mother's 60th Birthday.  It devastated my Mom.  
I had already created this card a few days earlier, but found it fitting to give to my Mom to help to console her through this Season in her life.

The single butterfly represents my Grandmother, and I added in the vellum quote...
"To everything there is a Season."
Unfortunately, this was the season for loss.  My Mom actually found comfort and inspiration in this...and the words that I wrote on the inside.  
Inspiration is everywhere, even in sad times.  I hope I have inspired you today.  Have a wonderful week, and remember, God never gives us more than we can handle.  There IS a season for everything...and this season, too, shall pass. 

Supplies Used:
   Marachino Cherry
   Midnight Confessions
   Mocha Mama
stickles, and mini roses
