I do love Friday's limited supplies challenge over on SCS! It helps keep me focused on the balance of each element in my designs. My art has to be pondered as each piece has meaning and is just a part of the whole story. This remembrance card illustrates this well, I think! I wanted to remind a dear co-worker that I had not forgotten the homegoing of her DH two years ago. They were high school sweethearts and grew up together. He adored her and their children and in time, grandchildren. The love between them and through their family is greatly evident in the care and daily contact the grown children have with their mother and amongst themselves. A picture of love in action. I wanted my card to celebrate this.
So I tucked the hearts around the sentiment, like a snuggle...the biggest heart for my friend and then 4 smaller hearts to represent the children. Each one different from the other. I added faux stitching...sort of binding up those hearts together. Of course over the years those children followed in their parents footsteps and married, blessing them with grandchildren...but then that's a whole 'nother story!
I am so fortunate to watch the love and care this family has for one another and it reminds me that truly our families, along with our health is, indeed, our greatest wealth. Love on yours today!
Thanks for spending some moments with me this Friday.
