Brief is Life but Love is Long

"Brief is Life but Love is Long"  Alfred Lord Tennyson.  A lovely quote in this set from Verve.  I've had a tough couple of weeks recently, lots of tough events and things going on in life.  But in the midst of all of it, my husband has been as solid as always to me, and for me.  He is good to me, takes care of me, and cares about how I am doing.  So, here is a sweet and simple card for him with this weeks Mojo Sketch.

Inside the tiny type reads the quote from Tennyson above, as well as "Have a heart that never hardens and a temper that never tires and a touch that never hurts" - Charles Dickens.  

Sorry,  to get the inside of the card to "hold" for the picture it looks wonky!  :)  

Hope you're able to hug someone you love today and tell them what they mean to you!
