Meet Sandy- "originator" the the phase "LYMI" (Love you, Mean It) newbie Stamper, as of today! Sandy & I have been closer than sisters for over twenty years. We have shared faith, heartache and joy- and today we shared stamping! She is holding her first "all-by-myself" card ever, and I guess you can see by her smile- it was all good! We practiced first by having her choose paper & images, this card was the result. Then she was on her own! How I wished we lived in the same town! Aaaack! Fortunately, HL is five minutes from her work. Hmmmm...guess where's she's gonna be spending lunch hours? Lol!
Sistah Sandy, thanks for a wonderful weekend, I truly LYMI

OMG Sandy, Patty Cakes must have rubbed off on you. What a stunning card. You couldn't have a betta teacher than Pat. Her work is AMAZING! I love that you made this by yourself and I'm sure you are beside yourself. There's nothing like a beautiful card made by hand! Blessings to you both!

Pictures of cards are wonderful, but pictures of friends sharing our love for cards and all that they can mean and the messages they can hold, well, how special is that!! So, here is sweet Sandy, creator of the LYMI phrase and all that it entails. We have known her and loved her before we got to see her "screen to face" :) Thanks for sharing her heart with us all Pat and you can see your heart and inspiration all tied up in that delicate paper beauty she is so proudly holding. Wonderful work Sandy--LYbothMI :)

Wow - seems Sandy was born to be a card artist as she obviously has much talent, has you for a mentor, has a HL near by, and can coin cool phrases like LYMI! Seriously, she was destined. I can tell from the card and from the sweetest of her face, that she will bring much joy to people with her new hobby. Thanks for sharing this Pat - it is so sweet. Hugz!!!
