Wild Orchid Crafts - Christmas Card for a friend.

Hi everyone.
I'm super duper tired. Emotionally and physically. As I sit and write this.
My Great-Grandmother is ..passing. She's 93 years old and probably one of my most favorite people in the world. I adore her so. There's nobody more elegant, classy.. beautiful... and I'm going to miss her so very much! I've been extremely lucky to have had her in my life for 30 years!! Not many people can say that about their Great-Grandmothers. I love you Nana.
Here's my card for Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge. Our theme is to make a Christmas card for a friend. I've used my Country Christmas papers. Wild Orchid Crafts is closed until January 1st.
I hope you will join us. Have a wonderful week my friends!
Ink - Memento and Copics
Accessories - snowflake and film strips are from Angie

Your card is gorgeous as all your work is.
I want to say how sorry I am about your Great Grandma.
You are right - very few people can spend 30 years with such a special person. I hope she isn't in any pain. I will be thinking of you and your family.
Big hugs, Candy

Mindy, How sad for you and your family, and what a wonderful age your Great-grandmother is, it sounds as if she is much loved by you all. Yes you will miss her awfully much, but think of all the beautiful memories and all the wisdom of her life she will be leaving you. Losing a loved one around this time of year always seams much worse, because it's a family time, but i'm sure you will draw strength from one another.

Ans as for your card, well it is just gorgeous, take care kate x
