I have to tell a little story for this one...all quite true. My friend, Belva, lost her battle with cancer years ago but years before that, she is the one who taught me to Tole paint. We became very close friends and she even came to job share with me at our business (she had already retired from the railroad). She was wonderful and my husband loved her too. She and I would dress up in Victorian style every Christmas season for a boutique that we were part of...that is why I picked this stamp. She was "an elder" who made a difference in my life! Even though I have never met him, her brother and I have been email buddies since her death. I love it because it is a constant reminder of our friendship!

What a beautiful card and a beautiful story! My, she sounds so divine! You speak of her with such a fondness and your love comes shining thru your card! LOVE your pretty colors (as I always do), your gorgeous image and the golden lace is so VERY pretty! Thank you so much for sharing Robin! I think it is wonderful that you are friends with her brother because you share such a special lady.
