Sometimes, in a Storm, a Friend is the Only Umbrella You Need

Hello.  Welcome.  Luckily I have no immediate need of a sympathy card.  So lets call this an empathy card.  Dear Lynell, as one chapter ends another begins.  Best wishes for the future.  May it be full to overflowing with good things.  Hugz



I really enjoyed working with this limited palette.  I love this sentiment stamp from Unity.  And Beach Girl, also a Unity stamp.  Love her as well.  I used Dreamweavers Waves stencil for my background.  I wanted it to represent change.  Hold on to your hat girl, there's a storm coming.  Hopefully good things will blow in.
