Amazing Grace and more Nikki Sivils Scrapbooking.....

Last week I went to a funeral and after searching through my stash of cards I could not find a sympathy card that would work. So I made a quick card as I seriously ran around getting ready to go and get out the door in less then 45 mins. Do you remember the family I told you about when I brought them dinner and the mom was battling cancer, two Fridays ago she lost her fight with breast cancer. She was such an amazing women and has such a beautiful story!!! She truly touched so many peoples lives and I want to dedicate this post to her!!

This card did not turn out how I wanted, not sure what I was thinking when I pulled out the white paper, I should have used cream paper but I did not have time to re cut the cricut cut. I was not even going to post this card but I just had to share with Nikki Sivils AMAZING paper collection, "Something For Everyone".
