For Sandy

Ingredients:  Hero Arts Stamps: SU Real Red, Pear Pizazz Ink; Ranger Distress Ink Pumice Stone; Twine from the Twinery

My dear friend Sandy lost her beautiful mom one year ago tomorrow. I’m thinking and praying for her. It is hard to believe that it has been one year. Time moves slowly and yet it moves so quickly. I think of Sandy’s mom often; her gorgeous sparkling eyes with a giggle hidden behind them. The way she loved to dance and how she loved her children and grandchildren more than anything.


This card for the Play Date Cafe is for Sandy. She loves red.  Letting her know I'm thinking of her and sending lots of love and hugs her way.

  5. So sweet, Lynn! She will really appreciate your thoughtfulness, I'm sure. I know you won't believe this, but I JUST cut up that same sentiment, in the same way, to use on a future card! I feel like each time I visit here, there is something similar we share. I swear we were related in another lifetime! Hugs to you! :)
