Tony's wife Toni is honored to replace her husband as a jockey but very disappointed about her hat. Ever since she had seen the vintage display in the April DD gallery she has wanted to wear a vintage hat to the Kentucky Derby. She had even started assembling the tea dyed laces, flowers, ribbons and a hat pin she would need to make a beautiful hat. When she got the call to ride she gave a long sigh and just attached her supplies to a card.

Oh my gosh! This is too purty to not wear. Maybe Tony can sport it while Toni runs! Lol! I love the romantic design of your papers, and that gorgeous lace. Beautiful work! TFS

LOL, love your story. Toni's millinery supplies certainly make for a great card. And I have a feeling it would take more than a pretty hat to improve that poor girl's appearance. But if she's a good jockey, that's what counts this week :D.
