Thinking of You - Play Date Cafe # 42

If this card looks familiar it's because it is the same as yesterdays....except in greens.  I made it as I needed a quick card to send ....

We got some very sad news yesterday.  Hubby's sister in law ( married to his eldest brother) has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.  She goes for an operation on Monday - so we are all praying that it going to be okay and they can remove it and it is not malignant... so I wanted to send her a card to let her know we are thinking of her....
Thinking of you

All the stamps on this are Hero Arts - Silhouette Grass, Everyday savings and Antique Engravings.   As I mostly used green and dark brown and mounted it on a beige card, I think it fits the colour challenge at Play Date Cafe.  The gems are beige coloured as well. It is hard to see on the photo but the vellum butterfly is two toned... dark brown underneath and white on top.  

I ask those of you who wish to, to add Mary to your prayers.  It would be appreciated.

Take care and have a great weekend.  I'm off to Stamp Group tomorrow- then  packing and get all the rest of the stuff organised on Sunday.

She has already been added to my prayers, Dawn. Some years ago, my sister, Mary was also diagnosed with a brain tumor. They removed it in surgery and it was benign, thank goodness! She had a few seizures for awhile after that, but today is very healthy. I'm praying for the sane outcome for your sister-in-law. Love the pretty card you've made for her. Shows your love and care beautifully!
