What kind of card?....

What kind of card do you make when a child has died? That was the sad news we got on Friday... a cousin of my husband her youngest son died last Wednesday. He was only 11, he had the brightest smile was full of fun but was suffering from an extremely rare condition called Williams Syndrome but he didn't die from that , he had a blood clot in his brain. I have no idea how what they are going through, how they will cope in the future but they have 2 other beautiful children to care for. It is not the natural way for a child to go before the parent, unfortunately, life is hard and we are given mountains to climb. This is some mountain. I know they will get plenty of support from family and friends.
I wanted to make a card that was different, a card full of vibrant colour to show that we are celebrating the life of a bright, vibrant young man So I hope it brings some comfort to his devastated family and reminds them that they are in our hearts........... Ciao


  1. I am sure they will appreciate it alot.

  2. There is enough grey in their lives right now, they can certainly use kind words and a bit of color xxx

  3. That's a lovely thought Olive, to go bright, not dull and morbid. A sad time for you all. You're in my thoughts and prayers x x
