two little cards for dear friends who are having a bit of a rough time

 this little card is for a dear friend who is having a problem with health ... she loves purple and loves flutterbyes

hope it fits the bill
this little one is for my dear cousin
 in NZ ... it is a year ago she lost her Mum ... and I wanted to send her a little card to cheer her up ...

sorry I couldn't seem to get the insert to load ... this is the verse ... found it on one of the verse sites ... you are most welcome to use it or save it if you would like to ... I thought it was lovely

My Mother seems so far away from me,
On that beautiful white shore across the sea.
Yet I remember love’s soft glow upon her face,
And the feel of her touch and tender embrace.
When I am weary from the burdens I’ve borne,
And the path is unclear and I feel so forlorn,
I remember her loving support was always near,
And her advice made the path ahead seem clear.
When I feel there is no one who seems to care,
Or when the heartache seems too hard to bear,
I remember how she always stood by my side,
And would tenderly wipe away the tears I cried.
When there are moments of great joy and pride,
And I wish my Mother was standing at my side,
I remember she saw more than I thought I could be,
And know I owe my triumphs to her belief in me.
When I reminisce about the things she used to say,
And I miss her and think she is so far away,
I remember what she gave lives on through me,
And one day I’ll see her on the shore across the sea.
