This card has been a few days in the making, but it was important to me to honor my friend Jill as Queen for the Day! Jill (JD from PAUSA) and I "met" on SCS at a very sad time for both of us, loosing our moms, and our hearts connected instantly. Jill, I celebrate your heart, and your art, and am thankful that God sends us those we need. I chose this card, because it was so delicate! I knew my Aunt would love it.
This card also represents another wonderful gift. I've been unable to stamp and still cannot type much due to hand pain. My friends (and hubby) together gave me an eBosser for my birthday, and it's more than a craft tool. They gave me back something I love, and have missed! The butterfly dies are also from a sweet SCS friend, and my Aunt will adore them! Thanks so much!

Pat, I took a glance at this post, and had to come back to it...so I could dry my eyes and be able to see to post a comment on your card. Your beautiful card is outstanding. You can see that you have put so much of yourself into the making of this beauty. The dried roses are so special. Your comments have touched my heart, and mean so much. Thank you being a friend and for sharing in my joy this week.

Oh, Patty Cakes, how I wish I had the gift of writing/speaking/expressing myself as well as you. I have always loved your spirit and heart and outrageously gorgeous creations. This one is no exception. It is exquisite. As always, I'm praying for you! Love ya, sistah!
Dear Pat, I don't know what an eBosser is but if it is a tool that makes paper crafting easier for you with your pain then thank goodness for it. This is an amazingly beautiful creation. Those dried roses are so perfect on the gorgeous decorative layer. Wow! Your heart just flows right out onto your cards.
