So thankful...

Soft, subtle and simple...that's just the way I like it, most of the time. This is my first time participating in Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge, WSC70 to be specific, and this weekend's sketch was created by Lori Craig, a member of Beate's sketch team. Isn't it a great sketch?

This card is going out to a young couple from our church who lost their 27 week old baby girl, Jordyn, to a premature birth on top of other pregnancy complications. Such a bittersweet story and hard to imagine for me, the mother of three beautiful, healthy and (most of the time) happy kids. Whenever I think of Mark and Crystal missing their baby Jordyn, I remind myself of how absolutely lucky I am.

Think happy thoughts and remind yourself of something that you are thankful for today.

Ahhh! What a sad story! I use to be a NICU nurse and saw so many preemies suffer. I'm sure your card will really mean a lot to them. The colors are absolutely gorgeous! I hope I can remember to try that combo out sometime.
