It's been a sad week this week

We lost my hubby's mother on Thursday. She was 92 and about 8 weeks ago she was diagnosed with cancer in the oesophagus. Poor thing suffered for eight weeks before giving up her fight for life. At least she is free from pain now, and we have our wonderful memories.
Now to my card, I think her death influenced me to make a thinking of you card this week for the LIM challenge. I had just the image, lovely and soft colours but with the leaves that is this week's challenge.
