In Loving Memory

card with teddy in blue coveralls sitting on the ground with a turtle and a miss you sentiment
i made this card in memory of my son, who passed away four years ago today. being the artist he was, he always encouraged me with my colouring skills when i started card making with stamped images. there are so many memories but this card honours him for his curiosity, love of nature and a scruffy teddy we rescued from a store shelf. i coloured this penny black teddy with distress inks and used my memory box alphabet die.

i’d like to submit my card to these challenges:
twisted tuesday – create a masculine card with clothes ends june 23
creative creations – masculine ends june 22
totally papercrafts – ends june 20

thanks for popping by.

  2. What a beautiful card, and a wonderful way to remember your beloved son. I hope I never face this particular loss, and my heart is heavy for you. Your card is lovely, and as always, your DI coloring blows me away. Many cyber hugs.

Your colouring is spectacular and I really love the way you shaded the letters to mimic the sky and grass in the image. I can imagine your son smiling down on your talent and the way you have used it, and your memories to help you on your journey. Love and hugs.
