Thinking of you

This card brought lots of memories flooding back with it being pink for October breast cancer awareness, we lost a very dear person Lesley or Lel as we all called her. our Nephews wife we always classed as a niece, who on her 25th birthday was diagnosed with cervical cancer, she managed to get the all clear and we all thought that was it only to be told a few weeks later it was in her breast and her spine, she married our nephew and we had the most fantastic day in August 2011, their two little girls then 3 and 6 were flower girls, then she died 13th December the same year 2011. She fought with such dignity and never complained, i am writing this with tears streaming down my face.
The image is another lovely one from Sherri Baldy besties collections. The lovely flowers are from wild orchid, die cuts memory box, lace, feather and ribbon all from dainty supplies. The ribbon is what i had left from Lels wedding invitation. I have colored with promarkers.
