This Too Shall Pass

This Too Shall Pass!  My grandfather used to say it alllll the time whenever I was going through something rather difficult in my life.  Even though he's been gone for almost 5 years now, I can still hear him saying it to me when things get a little rough and I feel like there is no end in sight with whatever is going on at the mo.

Then I get this wonderful new sentiment, This Too Shall Pass, from Paulette at TLC, that is included in a new set called Simply Put, which you can find in her store by clicking here.  It really tugged on my heartstrings; and with a wistful tear in my eye, I printed out the image I knew would be perfect with it!

I snagged this freebie image from Bugaboo Stamps awhile ago and love his pouty little face not believing that the storm will ever end.  He reminds me so much of Paddington Bear that I decided to use Paddington's color scheme as the inspiration for the card along with the current sketch over at Sketch Saturday.  I'm keeping this one in my stash for when someone I care about doesn't think their storm will end - just to lovingly remind them that "This Too Shall Pass"!
