I think I have just about the best son-in-law in the world and his sweet Mom died very unexpectedly and very suddenly last week. I did a card for him (forgot to take a picture of it) but totally struggled with what kind of card to do for his Dad, who lost his wife one month after their 50th anniversary. I ended up doing this card and it just happened to be the colors for the weekly challenge at Rene's blog.
I have a tremendous problem with bows so a present from my sister of Becca's Bow Maker was appreciated and will be used a lot!!
