Forever in Our Hearts



There is something about a clean craft room that inspires me to create!  And a fabulous inspiration photo never hurts either.  When I saw the current challenge over Inspired by the Little Things I knew immediately which set I wanted to pull out to play along. This card very quickly came together and is already in the mail for a co-worker who lost his 95 year old father last week.  His stories of his dad's love filled life were beautiful.

Besides being stunning and beautiful, and a wonderful tribute to your friend's father, I only have one thing to say about this card: Winner. Calling it here and now. It's utterly fantastic, and if there's a word for 'extra, extra beautiful,' then I'd use it here. LOVE this card. Bev
