Lady Henrietta - CCC # 62

What a week!  Sadly, the day before Mother's Day, a very dear friend of mine lost her battle with colon cancer.  Such a terrible disease.  She was laid to rest on Friday with her 3 children and 6 grandchildren in attendance.  So very young.  I'm really going to miss her.  We used to meet at IHOP every so often on a Saturday morning and enjoy breakfast together and catch up on news.  I love eating breakfast out.  Anyway, hold those you love close to you.  Tell them every day that you love them.  A person can't hear that too often.

Moving on to the business at hand, time to share my card for this fortnight's challenge for Creative Card Crew.  The theme this time is Vintage/Shabby Chic. I did make a little boo boo.  Can you tell what it is???
