This card is in honor of my WV grandma and her sisters. She was the oldest girl of 13 children (3 died in early childhood). They didn't have a lot..my great grandpa was a Methodist minister but they had each other. I got to know most of my great aunts but I would only get to visit WV and my grandma once a year. Nonetheless those ladies made quite an impression on me. I heard a lot about them from my dad. He was lucky enough to have their influence in his life (his dad died when my dad was a young teen) and I heard a lot of wonderful stories. So here's to the Miller girls whose strength and character has helped mold generations.
Kathleen- do I get extra, extra points..I used vintage images and gold (thimble)??
