Black Bird…

Today’s card is another from Mary Jo but this time it is a Blogger’s Challenge.  It is another Blog Hop, so be sure to visit all the cards below to see all their wonderful work.

I’ve also incorporated our group’s challenge into the sketch & that is to create a Sympathy Card.  This can be a challenging time for any family & a special handmade card can do a lot to let the person know you are thinking of them.
